publish date: 2017-11-03
"Call it What You Want" is the latest example of Swift pouring praise on the object of her affection.watch video:
She's done it again -- the way Taylor Swift releases a new song and immediately we all take out our metaphorical magnifying glasses to decode exactly what, or rather who, she's talking about. This time it's with "Call It What You Want," Swift's latest single off of her upcoming sixth studio album Reputation (Nov. 10).

"Call It What You Want" dropped on Friday morning (Nov. 3) as the fourth song released ahead of Reputation's arrival, following "Look What You Made Me Do" (Aug. 24), "...Ready For It?" (Sept 3) and "Gorgeous" (Oct. 20).
Regardless of genre, Swift has always had her endlessly dissected lyrics. Sometimes scornful, sometimes loving, sometimes every emotion in between, but always vivid and exact in imagery even when the protagonist she's singing about remains a mystery. (Over the years, Swift has been romantically linked to Joe Jonas, Taylor Lautner, John Mayer, Jake Gyllenhaal, Harry Styles, Calvin Harris and Tom Hiddleston, though she's never directly said which of her songs are specifically about her past loves.)
In "Call It What You Want," Swift sings of other things in her life going awry while pointing out that she's done at least one thing right -- finding her lover. In one verse in particular, Swift details, "My baby's fly like a jet stream."
