Swift released the first single off her sixth studio album “Reputation” at midnight early Friday morning, complete with a lyric video spoofing the animation style of “Feud” (which itself was an homage to the work of Alfred Hitchcock).

Despite the world record, a teaser for the accompanying “LWYMMD” music video has managed to spark some controversy in just one day’s time. Shortly after the official teaser of the clip dropped, Beyoncé fans began pointing out similarities between Swift’s new video and “Formation.”

However, music video director Joseph Kahn quickly refuted those claims on Twitter.

Following the denial, Kahn — who also directed Swift’s “Blank Space,” “Bad Blood”, “Wildest Dreams,” and “Out of the Woods” videos — went into further detail regarding the video’s shooting schedule.

A full music video will debut during MTV’s Video Music Awards on Sunday, hosted by Katy Perry.

As of press time, the lyric video for “Look What You Made Me Do” has 26,674,278 views. It can be viewed above.

    So very ironic….i typically can’t stand Taylor Swift, but, I Love this song…

  2. Taylor Swift says:

    I would seriously prefer to never hear another word come out of her face ever again.

    Taylor Swift, you are musical mayonnaise: Pasty, white, flavorless, and altogether unhealthy with no redeeming qualities.

    People flick to disasters. And this sing is a disaster. For someone used to buying at the Top, all over Europe the song debuted in the mid 30s. Taylor’s first bomb? Lol…
