The Best Reactions to Taylor Swift's New Song 'You Need to Calm Down'

On a massive night for sports fans and pop aficionados, Taylor Swift’s new song was abuzz on social media. 

While the NBA title was decided (and went north for the first time), and Madonna dropped her new album Madame X, Swifties had their hands full with her new song, “You Need to Calm Down.”

Lifted from TayTay’s forthcoming album release Lover, “Calm Down” and its official lyric video dropped at the stroke of midnight.  Despite what Swift says, her fans did not calm down as they poured over the song and every lyric.

Swift totally takes down the trolls on “You Need to Calm Down.” And the song trended through the night on Twitter as fans shared their thoughts in the most appropriate way: memes. See some of the best early reaction below.
