Earlier this month, Taylor Swift unveiled an animated lyric video for her gender-flipping Lover standout, “The Man,” and now the track is getting a full-blown music video.
The songstress took to social media on Tuesday (Feb. 25) to announce that “The Man” music video will be arriving on Thursday (Feb. 27) at 7 a.m. EST. The picture shows an arched hallway, with the announcement on a lit-up screen at the end. Down the hallway, various colorful hands reach out toward the center.

“There are 19 hands in the hallway… but only 2 days until The Man Music Video,” Swift wrote in the caption, leaving fans buzzing over what the 19 hands could possibly mean (because we all know that nothing TS does is on accident).
Many fans have guessed that the Easter egg means that there will be 19 cameos in the video. One clever detective took it a step further, remembering that Swift “mentioned 18 new acts” in her Woman of the Decade speech at the Billboard Women in Music event last year. “(Billboard) + Taylor … that’s 19 WOMAN = 19 HANDS,” she concluded.
We’ll have to stay tuned on Thursday to find out.
