Swifties meme on Twitter as Taylor Swift drops Red (Taylor’s Version)

On Friday, November 12, Swifties from all over the world rejoiced as Taylor dropped Red (Taylor’s Version), a re-recorded version of her fourth studio album Red, which was released in 2012. But Red (Taylor’s Version) doesn’t just contain re-recordings of the songs from Red, it also includes six new tracks “from the Vault,” tracks that were originally intended to go into the fourth album.

While a wave of nostalgia was sending some Swifties, others decided to get creative and celebrate the album’s release with memes and jokes.

Here are some of the most hilarious tweets we’ve compiled:






Some Swifties even made Taylor’s ex Jake Gyllenhaal the subject of the memes. For those who don’t know, here’s the context behind Gyllenhaal being featured in some of the memes: eleven years ago, Swift and Gyllenhaal reportedly dated for about three months. The couple reportedly broke up in 2011, and then a year later Swift dropped the original Red, which led fans to speculate that the songs Swift wrote for Red were about her break-up with Gyllenhaal.




Red (Taylor’s Version) is Swift’s second re-recorded album, preceded by Fearless (Taylor’s Version). Swift released these re-recorded albums as part of her move to regain ownership over her works after the rights to her first six albums were controversially sold by Scooter Braun, who had acquired the rights to her albums without her consent.
