Taylor Swift dropped her new single on Aug. 24, 2017, and fans are absolutely losing their sh*t. I get it. Taylor hasn't released a new album since 2014, and that's a really big deal. Taylor Swift's single, "Look What You Made Me Do," is really... umm... different. It sounds reminiscent of the '90s song, "I'm Too Sexy For My Shirt." I really don't know what to say other than WTF, Taylor. WTF.
If you don't believe me, iTunes lists the songwriters as Swift, Jack Antonoff (one of Swift's friends and uber-famous collaborator), Richard Fairbrass, Fred Fairbrass, and Rob Manzoli, all of whom are members of the British pop group Right Said Fred, who wrote the 1991 hit “I'm Too Sexy.” Believe it. I guess "Look What You Made Me Do" does sound very similar to "I'm Too Sexy For My Shirt." Out of all the songs she could sample from, she chose this one? At least include the part, "I'm a model, you know what I mean. And I do my little turn on the catwalk." God, I loved that verse when I was a child. Tay-Tay, bring it back!
I'm not the only one. People on Twitter think so, too.
Yes! Exactly what I was thinking.
Why? Just why?
This is the greatest. Thank you, Twitter.
You dug deep, girl. You dug deep.
It's really not Britney...
*Hears "I'm Too Sexy For My Shirt." Throws phone across room.*
Team Kanye in the house, y'all.
A freakin' shoutout from the OG, Right Said Fred. Nobody saw this coming.
Well, I guess the song is very... inventive? Although it's not exactly what fans had in mind, at least it's sort of catchy. Also, let's all be honest with each other for a moment. The "I'm Too Sexy For My Shirt" song is pretty amazing. I know I jammed out to it as a kid. Let's all be sure to listen to it today, and try not to dance.
