Taylor Swift's 'Look What You Made Me Do' breaks records, dethrones Adele's Hello

Music producer Jack Antonoff is keeping quiet about who Taylor Swift is singing about in her new song

Her new single, Look What You Made Me Do, sees her bathing in a tub full of diamonds - and, it transpires, that the jewels were the real deal.

The first record she broke was most lyric video views in its first day.

Taylor Swift's vengeful "Look What You Made Me Do", is smashing records on YouTube, garnering more than a record-breaking 43 million views in its first 24 hours of release.

Tottenham Hotspur: Mauricio Pochettino disappointed with late lapse in concentration after Burnley
The striker, signed from Leeds for £15million last week, stunned Spurs in stoppage time with his first Burnley goal to secure a 1-1 draw.

With information as juicy as that, it would be easy to accidentally post the news to Twitter, but Taylor recently thanked her backing dancers from the video with a bouquet of flowers and a note, each.

Swift's single was played more than eight million times via Spotify on Friday, beating Sheeran's single-day record for "Shape of You", which accumulated 6.87 million streams, according to the BBC. The controversial video earned the spot as the most music video views in 24 hours and reached nearly 30 million views it's first day, which beat Adele's Hello who held the record of 27.7 million views.

The diamond-filled bathtub used in Swift's Look What You Made Me Do music video, an apparent jab at Kim Kardashian's Paris robbery, wasn't just handy prop work. Her previous personal record was 17 million views in the first day for Bad Blood. Most importantly she is planning on releasing it on the anniversary of Kanye's mother, Donda West's death - November 10.
