The long battle between Taylor Swift and Scooter Braun seems to be far from over, but it is getting a little more interesting…
It wasn’t that long ago that things got ugly between Taylor Swift and the new owner of her life’s work, Scooter Braun. However, Taylor has possibly proven yet again why she is not to be messed with.
Over the weekend, a cryptic cover of her smash hit “Look What You Made Me Do,” surfaced from a band called ‘Jack Leopards and The Dolphin Club.’ Except there’s just one catch… the band doesn’t exist!
Fans have delved deep into this mystery and seemed to have put together a pretty solid case as to who and where this made-up band came from. Taylor Swift is credited as a lyricist on this cover alongside Jack Antonoff and others, just like the original. However, the producer on the new version of LWYMMD is “Nils Sjoberg” which is the same pseudonym Swift used in the past when collaborating with ex Calvin Harris on “This Is What You Came For.”
To make things crazier, fans have speculated that the vocalist on this cover is actually Taylor’s brother, Austin Swift. Ironically enough, Austin’s Twitter handle used to be “The Dolphin Club,” and we know that Jack Antonoff played a huge part in this song and Taylor’s album as well (potentially where the band name “Jack Leopards and The Dolphin Club” came from.)
So why go through all of this secrecy to release a cover of a song that already exists? The nasty battle between her and Braun over her music catalog of course. Now, Scooter Braun and Big Machine can’t claim a cent of the profit.
This may be the ultimate musical burn, I mean, Look What You Made HER Do….
