Early Sunday morning, Swift released the next single off her upcoming “Reputation” album titled, “…Ready For It?”, and the song has quickly soared to the No. 2 spot on the iTunes download charts and given the pop star the top two spots on the list. The two songs topped Logic’s “1-800-273-8255” and the big hit of the summer, Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s “Despacito.”
“…Ready For It?” was first teased on Saturday, as a snippet from the song was used on ESPN to introduce the Alabama/Florida State football game. The song takes a darker turn than much of Swift’s past work and describes the start of a new relationship.
“Knew he was a killer/ First time that I saw him,” read the lyrics. “Wondered how many girls/ he had loved and left haunted…Younger than my exes/ But he act like such a man, so/ I see nothing better/ I keep him forever/ Like a vendetta…”
Swift‘s “Reputation” will be released Nov. 10. Check out fans’ reaction to the new single below.
