It's happening. After months of silence, Taylor Swift has made her triumphant return to pop culture with the new single "Look What You Made Me Do." The singer dropped her song on Thursday night—just two days before the MTV Video Music Awards, where she's rumored to be making an appearance.

Taylor's new album is called Reputation (Get it? Because she had a turbulent 2016?!), and drops on November 10.
