Is Taylor Swift's 'Reputation' better than '1989'?
Taylor made her grand return with "Look What You Made Me Do," topping the Billboard Hot 100. She addressed her haters who labeled her a snake. She said, "I'm sorry, the old Taylor can't come to the phone right now. Why? Oh, 'cause she's dead!" But this smash proves Taylor's career is nowhere near dead.
🎶 I don't like your little games. Don't like your tilted stage. The role you made me play...of the fool, no, I don't like you. I don't like your perfect crime. How you laugh when you lie. You said the gun was mine. Isn't cool, no, I don't like you (oh).🎶
"Reputation" is barely out, and music experts are expecting the album to slay the charts. Variety's Jem Aswad writes:
Taylor Swift’s sixth studio album, “Reputation,” which drops at midnight tonight, is projected by its distributor to sell 1.3 and 1.5 million units in the U.S. in its first week, a source close to the situation tells Variety — which would actually be a bump up from the 1.287 million first-week sales of her previous album, “1989,” release in October 2014.
"Reputation" has some huge shoes to fill. Taylor's "1989" featured three #1 pop hits: "Shake It Off," "Blank Space" and "Bad Blood." The latter single is reportedly about Taylor's beef with Katy Perry.
🎶’Cause baby, now we've got bad blood. You know it used to be mad love. So take a look what you've done. ’Cause baby, now we've got bad blood, hey!. Now we've got problems. And I don't think we can solve 'em. You made a really deep cut. And baby, now we've got bad blood, hey!🎶
