Taylor Swift Releases 'Call It What You Want': Fans React

Another Friday, another Taylor Swift release, another social media frenzy. 

"Call It What You Want” arrived at midnight and is the fourth song lifted from Reputation, after "Look What You Made Me Do," "...Ready for It?" and "Gorgeous." 

Judging by the early response on social media, Taylor’s fans are happily feasting on the new recording. And there’s a lot to feast on right now. Just last Friday, Swift dropped the explosive music video for "...Ready for It?," another teaser for the Reputation album release a week from today.

Eager fans noted the "Call It" lyrics seemed to connect with Swift's 2008 song "Love Story" and its gooey depiction of a romance for the ages. Though times have moved on. "Romeo, take me somewhere we can be alone," she sang back in the day. Now, nearly a decade on, she doesn't need Romeo's help.

"Taylor's a genius and I'm crying," gushed one fan. Believe it, she's one weepy fan among many. Check out some of the best reactions below.
