Look What You Made Me Do is the lead single from Taylor Swift’s 2017 album, Reputation. Panned by some and heralded by others, the Swift/Antonoff-penned track (with additional credits to Right Said Fred) marks a pronounced stylistic departure for Swift due to its darker, more scathing qualities than her previous hits such as Shake It Off, Blank Space and Wildest Dreams. However, it is just as meticulously well-crafted and chock-full of the “soap opera” intrigue that her audience has come to expect.
To date, Look What You Made Me Do has landed in the Top 10 on over 50 charts throughout the world, peaking at #1 on over 20.
Love it or hate it, Look What You Made Me Do put Taylor Swift back in the limelight and heightened anticipation for the release of her forthcoming album, Reputation.
