I’ve heard the whole album and it’s spectacular. But I can’t go into details. But the album is truly… I’m a video director; I’m not a musician, so what she does is magical in her sensibilities in terms of what she thinks is a good song and how songs should be constructed and the things she writes about.
It’s always impressive for me every single time. I’ll just say the album is a MONSTER.

Taylor Swift at N° 1 & 4 on Billboard Hot 100
Swift reigns for a second week with “Look What You Made Me Do” & debuts with “…Ready for It?” Plus, as Cardi B’s “Bodak Yellow” rises 3-2, solo women control the top two for the first time in almost three years.
Taylor Swift’s “Look What You Made Me Do” spends a second week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart (dated Sept. 23). Swift also debuts at No. 4 on the Hot 100 with “…Ready for It?,” with both songs previewing her new album Reputation, due Nov. 10. Meanwhile, Cardi B bumps 3-2 with “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves),” marking the first time in nearly three years that solo women (in lead roles) rank at Nos. 1 and 2 simultaneously on the Hot 100. Also notably, Charlie Puth’s “Attention,” at No. 7 on the Hot 100, takes over as the most-heard song on U.S. radio, as it crowns the Radio Songs chart. As we do every Monday, let’s run down the top 10 of the Hot 100, which blends all-genre streaming, airplay and sales data. All charts will update on Billboard.com tomorrow (Sept. 12).
"Look," released on Big Machine/Republic Records, leads the Hot 100 following its second full week of tracking (after its Aug. 25 release). It tops the Streaming Songs chart for a second frame with 61.2 million U.S. streams, down 28 percent, in the week ending Sept. 7, according to Nielsen Music. A week ago, it set the record for the most weekly streams for a song by a female artist: 84.4 million.
"Look" dips to No. 2 after a week atop the Digital Song Sales chart (114,000 downloads sold, down 68 percent, in the week ending Sept. 7) and lifts 14-13 on Radio Songs (72 million all-format audience impressions, up 15 percent, in the week ending Sept. 10). More on Swift's debut at No. 4 in a moment …
First, Cardi B pushes from No. 3 to a new No. 2 high on the Hot 100 with "Bodak Yellow." The rapper's breakthrough hit keeps at No. 2 on Streaming Songs (46.2 million, up 9 percent) and rises 10-8 on Digital Song Sales (35,000, up 2 percent) and 17-16 on Radio Songs (59 million, up 7 percent). The track spends a third week at No. 1 on the Hot Rap Songs chart and a second week atop Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs.
Led By Taylor Swift, Ladies Are Finally Making a Big Return to the Top of the Hot 100 With Swift at No. 1 and Cardi B at No. 2, the Hot 100 finds two solo women in lead roles in the top two simultaneously for the first time in almost three years, since the Hot 100 dated Dec. 13, 2014. That week, (guess who) Swift ranked at No. 1 with "Blank Space" (with Dec. 13 doubling as her birthday!) and Meghan Trainor placed at No. 2 with "All About That Bass." Reflecting the chart's cyclical nature, however, while Swift and Cardi B this week end the lengthy run of male artists in the Hot 100's top two, that Dec. 13, 2014-dated Hot 100 completed a whopping 15-week streak of women monopolizing the region (thanks to Swift's "Space" and "Shake It Off"; Trainor's "Bass"; and Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda").
Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's "Despacito," featuring Justin Bieber, falls 2-3 on the Hot 100. A week ago, the smash, and the No. 1 song of the summer for 2017, ceded the summit to Swift's "Look" after tying the record for the most weeks (16) spent at No. 1 in the Hot 100's 59-year history. Still, "Despacito" remains atop the Hot Latin Songs chart, reigning for a 32nd week.
Back to Swift: "…Ready for It"? roars onto the Hot 100 at No. 4, launching at No. 1 on Digital Song Sales with 135,000 downloads sold. Swift scores her 13th Digital Song Sales No. 1, moving to within one of Rihanna, who leads with 14 toppers on the tally. Additionally, with "Ready" and "Look," Swift is the first act to sell more than 100,000 downloads of two songs in the same week since Ed Sheeran, whose "Shape of You" and "Castle on the Hill" arrived simultaneously on the Jan. 28-dated Digital Song Sales chart with 240,000 and 171,000 sold, respectively.
"Ready" also starts at No. 11 on Streaming Songs (19 million U.S. streams), drawing 13 million in radio audience. "Ready" is receiving play even as "Look" is Swift's focus radio single; "Ready" debuts at No. 35 on the Pop Songs airplay chart (while "Look" lifts 9-7 in its third week on the list).
And, more on women's resurgence in the Hot 100's upper reaches: Swift's two songs and Cardi B's "Bodak Yellow" make for solo women infusing three of the top four for the first time since, again, Dec. 13, 2014. (For seven weeks just before then, on charts dated Sept. 20 through Nov. 1, 2014, women shut men out of the top five entirely, thanks to hits by Swift, Trainor, Minaj, Iggy Azalea, Ariana Grande, Jessie J, Rita Ora and Tove Lo.)
Plus, with "Look" and "Ready," Swift is the first woman with two concurrent top five Hot 100 hits since… Swift, on Feb. 7, 2015, when "Space" and "Shake" ranked at Nos. 4 and 5, respectively.
"Ready" for one more stat about Swift? She adds her 22nd top 10 Hot 100 hit. Among women, only Madonna, the leader among all artists with 38 top 10s, Rihanna (31), Mariah Carey, Janet Jackson (27 each) and Whitney Houston (23) have earned more.
davepastern: The Ready for it... video was good (but I loved Ghost in the Shell so that was gonna always be a given lol), not really a fan of End Game (the song or video). Sorry, but it's my least favourite song on Reputation, and joins the ranks of a few other songs
Jan 14, 2018 8:42:01 GMT -5
davepastern: that I dislike (should've said no, better than revenge, holy ground, and style).
Jan 14, 2018 8:42:32 GMT -5
neoswiftie: no need to be sorry, wasn't my favorite song on reputation either, but I do love the video, especially the London sequence
Jan 14, 2018 8:45:13 GMT -5

neoswiftie: Hi StarlightDreamer, I'm not a member there... but I'm pretty sure some of our members are there too, I guess they prefer to be on both fora. Why do you ask?
Jan 16, 2018 7:22:53 GMT -5
neoswiftie: I don't mind that you promote your forum and everyone can join here and stay a member there too, I really don't mind, there is also taycon.proboards.com/ they were first
Jan 16, 2018 7:26:25 GMT -5
swiftvote: I've been here from the start... no drama like on TC or the new 'The Swift Life' app, I don't need another forum
Jan 16, 2018 7:37:49 GMT -5
swiftvote: I guess most swifties are now on tumblr and The Swift Life, but they are also chatting in 'private chatrooms', problem with those chatrooms is that 1 person has to approve who is allowed in, and who is allowed to stay, heard that there was drama there too.
Jan 16, 2018 7:41:24 GMT -5
neoswiftie: When there are a lot of members, doesn't matter where, you are gonna get drama... that's why certain topics are better avoided
Jan 16, 2018 7:43:25 GMT -5
neoswiftie: Here we have a safe place for everyone that loves Taylor for who she is, what she does without having to whine about the 3 things other 'huge' fora forbid... Po Ra Re, there are enough other places for those topics
Jan 16, 2018 7:46:23 GMT -5
swiftvote: Agreed, those topics are what causes the most misery on TSL
Jan 16, 2018 7:48:31 GMT -5
twothirtyam: I like TSL but you can't really connect to anyone, short conversations are possible on someone's post... but once you go somewhere else it's not possible to find it back
Jan 16, 2018 8:30:58 GMT -5
neoswiftie: Lol now they have a problem with Joseph Kahn, you know... the one friend who defended Taylor through thick and thin, you know... one of her REAL friends

neoswiftie: Because he said that pitbulls are dangerous, and I know he is exaggerating but what sane parent would leave his/her baby/todler alone with a pitbull? Just imagine a child who doesn't know how to behave around an animal, poking in it's eye... or worse!
Jan 16, 2018 11:14:50 GMT -5
neoswiftie: Some breeds have a bite and jaw that can kill, Joseph is not saying every pitbull would do that, just saying you never know what might happen, and if something happens what then?
Jan 16, 2018 11:17:40 GMT -5
neoswiftie: Is anyone on the TSL app? If so, did you get free packs and picks today or yesterday?
