People Think Taylor Swift’s New Song Sounds Like Kanye West’s ‘Yeezus’
5 September 2017, 11:10
Fans are hailing the track a ‘rip off’ of Ye’s 2013 sound.
Taylor Swift dropped her new song '...Ready For It?' this weekend and some people think she's been borrowing sounds from Kanye West.
The follow-up to her supposed diss-track 'Look what You Made Me Do', Swift's new track sees the country-turned-pop singer take on an electronic, trap-influenced sound.
Taylor's new musical direction came as a surprise to many listeners, who began comparing second single from her controversial forthcoming album 'Reputation' to West's 2013 album 'Yeezus'.
The comparisons are likely prompted by the less-than-subtle Yeezy-aimed digs made by Swift in her comeback single.
Fans of both artists believe there is a direct link between T's new sound and the trap-style beats utilised by West in his sixth studio album.

Also Taylor Swift: *uses a basic trap beat that sounds like knock-off Yeezus*
Swift is yet to respond to the claims.
Meanwhile, Kanye was recently spotted wearing a T-Shirt emblazoned with a slogan that appeared to be in response to Taylor's recent jabs.
It was previously reported that the rapper and his wife Kim Kardashian are unbothered by the recent drama concerning Taylor's new music.
