Are You ‘Ready for It?’ Taylor Swift Releases Another New Song and This Time, She’s Rapping
Just when you thought you could carry on with your Labor Day weekend without talking about Taylor Swift, the singer released a new song Sunday morning.
The new track titled “… Ready for It?” is the second single from her upcoming album Reputation out November 10. On the new track, the 27-year-old singer raps.
Swift raps: “Knew he was a killer first time that I saw him. Wonder how many girls he had loved and left haunted but if he’s a ghost then I can be a phantom. Holdin’ him for ransom, some, some boys are tryin’ too hard. He don’t try at all though, younger than my exes but he act like such a man. So I see nothing better, I keep him forever like a vendetta.”
For the chorus, she returns to her light and fluffy vocals, reminding us of one of her previous songs “Wildest Dreams.” She sings: “In the middle of the night, in my dreams you should see the things we do, baby. In the middle of the night, in my dreams I know I’m gonna be with you so I take my time.”
Then she asks, “Are you ready for it?” Next, an abrasive electronic beat takes over.
Fans seems to be enjoying the new track.
One commenter wrote: “I feel like the chorus is old Taylor’s voice, but the whole song is a different style of music. I’m happy she found a way to accent her beautiful voice and switch to a different style of music that is still SUPER catchy.”
Others weren’t so impressed, especially of the rapping.

It really baffles me that Taylor Swift is selling billions with zero vocals. Like zero, at all. She's white girl rapping.

We’re not sure what to make of it. We’d love for video of Nicki Minaj to surface listening to it. We’re sure she’ll have something to say.
