Taylor Swift fans are convinced the star’s track I Forgot You Existed is a dig at her longtime rival Kanye West.
The pair have been locked in a bitter feud since the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, when the Yeezy mogul jumped on stage to interrupt the Shake It Off hitmaker’s Best Music Video acceptance speech.
And now fans think the star is reigniting the feud with the new song, taken from her album Lover.
In the track, Taylor sings about being on the negative end of public perception in a feud, crooning: “Lived in the shade you were throwin’ / ‘Til all of my sunshine was gone, gone, gone.”
The song also includes a reference to rapper Drake, which fans are convinced alludes to the Gold Digger musician’s feud with the star.
But the 29-year-old goes on to admit she isn’t vexed by disagreement, singing: “But then something happened one magical night / I forgot that you existed.”
“It isn’t love, it isn’t hate, it’s just indifference,” she continues.
Following the album’s release on Friday (2August 23, 2019), fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the subtle references.
“‘I forgot that you existed’ mmmmm hello Kayne and Kim, how are you honey,” one fan posted, while another wrote, “I forgot you existed is definitely about Kanye West.”
“I forgot that you existed is about Kanye West! The shade! I love her,” a third user enthused over the track.
Earlier this month, the star opened up to U.S. Vogue magazine about being publicly attacked by Kanye, his wife Kim Kardashian and their fans, telling the publication she “felt completely out of control”.
“I don’t think there are that many people who can actually understand what it’s like to have millions of people hate you very loudly,” the ME! hitmaker added.
