After the release of the album, fans have revisited the grief playlists, noticing that many of the songs listed were originally alleged love songs about the singer’s ex-boyfriend, Joe Alwyn. Swift and her team have not responded to any speculation.

The “Clara Bow” singer’s latest album holds multiple records, becoming the most-streamed album in a single day on Spotify and Amazon. Apple Music also declared the album the “biggest pop album of all-time,” according to first-day streams.
