Well, Taylor Swift’s much-awaited sixth album, Reputation, is finally here for the whole wide world to hear. Swift, who seems to be in an ever-simmering “situation” with streaming services, plans to release it to the world of Spotify and Google Play about a week later. Boo.

Good girl goes bad

If 1989 marked a significant turn in Taylor’s genre game, then Reputation seems to foreshadow a complete artistic overhaul.

Three years have passed since we last heard from Taylor in a musical sense (though we’ve heard about her love life plenty), so naturally all of us fans, and even those who claim to be in the opposite camp, have been anticipating the release since the moment we caught wind of the concept.

Taylor Swift goes bad…like, really bad.

If 1989 marked a significant turn in Taylor’s genre game, then Reputation seems to foreshadow a complete artistic overhaul.

A re-branding, if you will.

As is the case with most musical artists, every “rebirth” brings about the same ol’ conversation.

“Are they even relevant anymore?”

Swift’s music video for “Look What You Made Me Do”, the first single released off of Reputation, has a whopping 692 million views on her YouTube channel alone. (Not to mention all of the other uploads floating around the web…) Not too shabby, considering how long Taylor has been away from the music game.

Time and time again, Swift emerges from the metaphorical dead…

Ever since she strayed away from her twangy style and high school-esque visuals, there have always been haters. Hell, like anyone else, Taylor Swift’s had haters since the very beginning. And as evidenced by this new album, it’s only added fuel to the fire that is Swift’s brand and ultimately her extremely successful career.

Time and time again, Swift emerges from the metaphorical dead (just like the zombie version of herself in the “Look What You Made Me Do” video) and slays us all over again.

So to answer the question, yes, we do still care about Taylor Swift.

Whether you like her or not…you’re still talking about her, aren’t you?
