The opening lines of the single, in which Swift sings, "I don’t like your little games/Don’t like your titled stage," has led some fans to draw parallels to West's Saint Pablo Tour, where the 40-year-old rapper performed on an elevated stage suspended above his audience.
Additionally, at the end of the song, Swift sounds as if she's recording a message onto her answering machine when she muses, "I’m sorry, the old Taylor can’t come to the phone right now./ Why?/ Oh, ’cause she’s dead!"
Earlier this week, sources told ET that the "Shake it Off" singer has been "obsessed with secrecy" in regards to her new music, adding that even her record label, Big Machine, hadn't heard her new song.
“It’s crazy for the record label not to have all heard it. Some of them will be listening to it tonight like everyone else,” the source shared. “She is obsessed with secrecy. The levels of secrecy [on this album] are much tighter than compared with 1989.”
The source also added that they believe Swift will go on a stadium tour to promote Reputation that will likely kick off in the spring.
