Reputation, Swift's first studio album in three years, marks another transformation in image for the country-turned-pop star. It's doubly interesting when you consider that Kanye has a 2016 song called "Real Friends", where he laments how hard it is to have true friends amid life changes and fame.
The allusions to Swift's past dramas are few and far between, and when they do show up on Reputation, they make for some of the album's very best songs. Of course in the time between albums, Swift has also gained infamy for being petty as fuck.
The line, "I've got a boyfriend / He's older than us / He's in the club doing I don't know what", in "Gorgeous" is believed to be about Calvin or Tom Hiddleston.
Swift came out of the gate swinging on Reputation's lead single Look What You Made Me Do, with lyrics like "I don't like your little games / Don't like your tilted stage" that seemed directed at West, the rapper who reignited their feud when he unceremoniously included Swift's name in his Famous lyrics. While those years have certainly not been easy on the singer - or her reputation, for that matter - she has proven once again that she is able to rise from the ashes and work even smarter and harder.
Then, it's West's turn. "There I was, giving you a second chance / But you stabbed me in the back while shaking my hand".

And with that ax, T-Swift swings for the heart with a lyric about Ye's falling out with Jay Z: "But I'm not the only friend you've lost lately / Mm mmm / If only you weren't so shady".
Fans think that 'This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things' is aimed at Katy also. 1989 fans will breathe a sigh of relief when "I Did Something Bad" kicks in, though, which starts off a string of shiny pop songs that not only feel like a more natural progression from the last album, but improve upon each listen in that sneaky way Swift songs tend to do. "And here's to you, 'cause forgiveness is a nice thing to do", she says, before breaking down in giggles, saying, "I can't even say it with a straight face!"
Here, we've rounded up six sneaky references T.Swift could be making to Kanye with the song below.
