Reputation is Swift's first album since she dropped 1989 three years ago.
Taylor Swift knew these articles were coming.
The singer released her album on Friday (November 10), and the listening party is just getting started. That was when Taylor's star-studded squad reached new levels of public prominence and her annual Fourth of July bash became a much larger part of the pop culture canon.

She sings that she's "got a list of names and yours is in red, underlined", and all she "thinks about is karma". Her adventurous sound is coupled with lyrics that are drunker and more sexual than ever - she even drops her first in-song swear with a "shit" in "I Did Something Bad".
Like I said, she's quite proud. "/ Most fun I ever had / And I'll do it over and over and over again if I could". Then we get a not-so-subtle reference to the "Famous" phone call: "And therein lies the issue / Friends don't try to trick you / Get you on the phone and mind-twist you / And so I took an ax to a mended fence".
The song is sung in autotune, one of Kanye's favorite musical styles. While I love each of the 15 tracks individually, I've chosen to highlight five of the best new tracks right here. "There I was, giving you a second chance / But you stabbed me in the back while shaking my hand". But there was something endearing about the whole thing: you had to give it to Swift and Martin for taking it there, even if "there" wasn't an especially cool place to take it.
She then takes a low but effective blow with an apparent reference to the broken friendship between Kanye and Jay Z after Kanye made negative comments about Beyoncé.
Her Twitter has also been overflowing with tweets and retweets about her new album, Reputation in a bid to promote her work.
It seems that 'Kanye is laughing off Taylor's mentions of him on her album, ' according to a source.
