While it could be a coincidence, the ‘Shake It Off’ singer is planning to release ‘Reputation’ on November 10, which will be the 10th anniversary of Donda West’s death.
Taylor Swift is the ultimate queen of comeback. After announcing her brand new album “Reputation“, the songstress made headlines by releasing a scorching hot track “Look What You Made Me Do” that is seemingly aimed at her nemesis Kanye West. And now, fans are wondering if Taylor intentionally
plans to release her new album on the 10th anniversary of the rapper’s mother Donda West’s death, on November 10.
In response to the speculation, Taylor’s record label Big Machine Records confirmed that “there is no correlation” between the album release date and Donda’s death anniversary. “It is a standard practice that releases come out on Fridays and we locked in this release date based on other Universal Music Group releases,” a rep for the label explained.
Donda was an English professor. She died at the age of 58 following complications from multiple cosmetic surgery procedures. Kanye blamed himself for her passing. “If I had never moved to L.A. she’d be alive,” he previously said of his late mother. “I don’t want to go far into it because it will bring me to tears.”
Coincidence or not, Kanye is reportedly pissed off that Taylor dissed him on her new song. While he is currently working on a new effort, we can definitely expect Kanye to throw major shade at the “Blank Space” hitmaker soon. “Kanye is clearly pissed over the song,” a source told. “When it comes to Kanye he lives in the music world and doesn’t want anyone to have a one up on him and this track is clearly going to be responded to, Taylor hasn’t heard the last of Kanye’s wrath.”
A few hours after releasing “Look What You Made Me Do”, Taylor shared a clip on social media to tease fans about the visuals for the alleged diss track. The short clip found Taylor rocking various baddie costumes. She also had sharp talons with snake jewelry slithering up her fingers. Well, it looks like the new Taylor Swift is ready for revenge. The full music video will be premiered at the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards.
“Look What You Made Me Do” serves as the first single off “Reputation”. Laced with fifteen tracks, the upcoming album is said to feature songs aimed at people who damaged Taylor’s reputation in the past few years, including Kanye, Kim Kardashian, Katy Perry and her ex-boyfriend Calvin Harris.
