Taylor Swift’s new song Ready For It audio is out and fans can’t keep calm. Taylor had earlier released a 1-minute teaser of her next song from Reputation, during the lead-in to ESPN’s Florida State vs. Alabama college football game. And going by the huge fan following Taylor has, we are sure even this one is going to rage a storm as big as Taylor’s previous revenge themed song, “Look What You Made Me Do.(LWYMMD)
” Ready For It” is a peppy and energetic number in stark contrast to LWYMMD and is sure to strike a far more upbeat tone among fans. And while it is telling of a romantic tale, this one too is nothing like the “Old Taylor” songs and it is definitely continuing her deviation from her earlier image and music choice. Having a throbbing bass throughout, this song too appears to have references to Taylor’s earlier boyfriends, like most of her work.
Her followers are busy wondering if this track is a dig at her rival singer Katy Perry, whose recent track “Swish Swish” was basketball themed. Considering that Taylor is in extreme revenge mood this season, it wouldn’t come as a surprise if the video of the song has some obvious jibes at Katy.
Taylor’s latest “Look What You Made Me Do” was also featured in a preview for ABC’s fall season shows. Commanding 43.2 million views within 24 hours of its release, the “Look What You Made Me Do” video directed by Joseph Kahn, became a record-breaker surpassing various records.

Even the animated lyric video had a staggering 19 million views on YouTube, zooming past Coldplay’s “Something Just Like This” first-day views. Reputation is Swift’s sixth album after 1989, which featured the hit track “Blank Space” and is also her first since 2014.
