Taylor Swift's new single 'Look What You Made Me Do' widely mocked
Taylor Swift is back!
But we probably could've dealt with her being gone a little longer if it meant this was what we got.
The 27-year-old released her new single — "Look What You Made Me Do" — Thursday night to streaming platforms and iTunes. Reaction was overwhelmingly something like this: "Huh?"
Listen for yourself.
Taylor Swift: 'Look What You Made Me Do'
The song is the first single from her sixth album, "Reputation," to be released Nov. 10 as part of Swift's "re-branding" effort. It quickly became No. 1 on the iTunes list. And most are under the impression that it is related to her ongoing feud with Kanye West .
The long-anticipated release of new music from Swift helped the song make the rounds on social media late Thursday. And many were not impressed.
Taylor Swift is a multi-millionaire yet her new song sounds like it was made it under 10 minutes on Garageband— LK (@ellkay_) August 25, 2017

with the amount of good music circulating around 2017 you would think Taylor Swift would try to at least make her single listenable— LUNADIRA (@luna_dira) August 25, 2017
Ppl are talking about 'new Taylor' but the whole point of #LookWhatYouMadeMeDo is to blame others 4 her actions..old tay is still alive+well— Bucky Kentucky (@khuBaibStation) August 25, 2017

Spare a thought for the Taylor Swift superfans that have to defiantly pretend this new song is amazing— Patrick Monahan (@pattymo) August 25, 2017
But it wasn't all negative. Team Swift supporters also were out in full force in favor of the songstress' rebranding effort.
Of course it's defensive music, but taylor swift did not use offensive words, it shows the level of composer she is— Andy (@swiftedy) August 25, 2017
