The dead rise and clones attack…each other. Taylor Swift did not perform, let alone, attend this year’s VMAs but her presence was still known. The official video for her first single, “Look What You Made Me Do,” from her first studio album in three years, debuted tonight during the VMAs.
Check it out:
The video begins with a zombified Swift rising from the dead and continues with different scenarios including her bathing in a tub of diamonds, swinging on a swing in a birdcage and ending with clones of her past selves cutting into each other.
Although it has had mixed reviews, it has broken records since its Thursday night debut. The single was up to 184,589 in download sales by mid-Saturday and by Sunday afternoon, 3,048,667 of first-day audio streams out of 4.6 million of total U.S. Audio streams of all her songs. The lyric video that debuted on on Thursday along with the single became the most-watched lyric video within a 24 hour period.
Wow, she must be tired! A huge and busy week for Taylor who also just won a VMA, along with Zayn, for Best Collaboration for their song “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” from the Fifty Shades Darker Soundtrack.
Taylor’s sixth album, Reputation debuts on November 10, 2017,
