Taylor Swift's 'Reputation' Dropped and Fans Are Losing It

Let the games begin…Taylor Swift’s hotly anticipated sixth album Reputation arrived just before midnight, a little earlier than expected but right on time for Swifties – at least, those with the means to download it.  

Taylor got the ball rolling and her followers immediately got into the game. Cue a lot of freaking out on social media. 

In the hours leading up to release, the pressing question was whether Reputation would hit all the streaming services. The answer is no, not immediately, causing confusion among some fans who figured their market was left out of release plans, or that they were simply looking (frantically) in the wrong place. 

After four pre-release tracks, teasers and a wave of hype, it’s no surprise Reputation is an immediate hit with fans, many of whom are pouring over the lyrics, connecting the dots or begging to be gifted. Some fans reportedly experienced slow download speeds from their digital service provider as Reputation did its bit to break the Internet. Game on! Check out some of the reaction below.
