Taylor Swift’s Reputation Leaked Online and Fans Are Split
Taylor Swift‘s highly anticipated album, Reputation, has been leaked online just one day before its release date! After months of being kept tightly under wraps, it seems like the singer's efforts did not work out in her favor. It's very safe to say that T. Swift will NOT be happy about this. Let's not forget the fact that it was leaked in the U.K. after a record store played the album over the weekend. Oops.
There was also her tracklist leak. However, Taylor took matters into her own hands and shared it herself. Who knows how she'll handle her album being leaked, but she's going to have to think fast before everyone gets their hands on it. Either she releases the album ahead of time or she sues the heck out of the person who leaked it in the first place. Something tells us she'll do both.
While it might seem like NBD — it's just one day early — more recent reports stated that T.Swizzle wouldn't be putting the music on streaming services for a whole week after its release… meaning only the dedicated fans willing to actually buy the album would get to listen to it immediately. Now, of course, Taylor's plan has been foiled.
Naturally, fans had a lot to say about the leak – and the reviews are mixed!

People leaking reputation, obviously you're talentless and lifeless. We know y'all are closeted Taylor Swift stans after all. This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things.

What the Music is Like
From those who have taken the time to listen (and truly risked getting sued by Taylor's team for downloading the pre-released music), Reputation is nothing like Taylor's other music. Apparently, there is a definite EDM feel to it — and sounds inspired by other artists like Lorde and Imogen Heap. We just can't wait to dissect the lyrics and find out who each track is about!
