After what seems like forever, Taylor Swift is finally back with new music.
Her comeback song Look What You Made Me Do has broken three records in its first week of release, according to The Guardian.
据《卫报》报道，她的回归新单《Look What You Made Me Do》发布首周便打破了三项记录。
The 27-year-old’s first single since 2014 was released on Aug 25 with an accompanying lyric video.
According to the BBC, the song was streamed over 10 million times on the day of its release, more than any other song has achieved in a single day.
The video also broke YouTube’s one-day streaming record. It received more than 39 million views in 24 hours, smashing the record set by Adele, whose video for Hello was watched 27.7 million times on its first day.
But while the song seems popular with fans, it’s received mixed reviews from critics.
Spin magazine called the track “hard” and “cheerless”, while The New York Times described its lyrics as “powerful, yet joyless”.
“‘I don’t trust nobody, and nobody trusts me’ is just one of many lyrics that present a darker, angrier version of the pop star’”, commented Vanity Fair.
According to Forbes magazine, the pop singer has ditched the style that initially made her a household name. “The song's intro makes it sound like this will be yet another fairy tale—the kind that she has sung so many times before—but nothing could be further from the truth. After a few seconds, it becomes clear that this is not the Taylor we have all come to know and love (or hate). “
《福布斯》杂志认为，这位流行歌手已经摒弃了曾经令她家喻户晓的风格。“这首歌的一开头听起来像是又一个童话故事 —— 她先前已经唱过许多次的那种 —— 但事实却远非如此。几秒之后，我们发现，这并非是我们之前认识并喜爱（或者讨厌）的泰勒了。”
The song’s words, said the Daily Mail, contain an obvious reference to US celebrity couple Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, with whom Swift has feuded.
According to The Guardian, Look What You Made Me Do is the first song taken from Swift’s upcoming album, Reputation, which will be released in November.
据《卫报》报道，斯威夫特将于今年11月发行新专辑《Reputation》，而《Look What You Made Do》是新专辑中发布的首支单曲。
