So, Taylor Swift’s new album Lover just dropped this past Friday, and of course her fans immediately went to the lyrics to see who she was throwing shade at these days. As the undisputed queen of breakup songs, Swift has had her fair share of men to write about. On “I Forgot That You Existed,” in particular, fans are convinced she’s finally going after Calvin Harris.
The song opens thus:
“How many days did I spend thinking
’Bout how you did me wrong, wrong, wrong?
Lived in the shade you were throwing
Till all of my sunshine was gone, gone, gone
And I couldn’t get away from ya
In my feelings more than Drake, so yeah
Your name on my lips, tongue-tied
Free rent, living in my mind.”
There’s still the chance that she’s referring to her ongoing feud with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, but check out these tweets.

Apparently “I Forgot That You Existed” is about Calvin Harris & was supposed to be on reputation but it didn’t make the cut bc she wrote it so late… bc ya know… she forgot that he existed #Lover
