Look what you made them do.
People are so excited for Taylor Swift's new album Reputation that tracks from the record were leaked and shared online on Thursday, less than a day before the release date.
Two days earlier, Swift posted on her official Instagram page a track listing for Reputation after it leaked online. Links to the songs were shared on multiple file-sharing websites and message boards. Many were taken down as quickly as they were put up. Swift and her music label, Big Machine Records, have not commented.

The leak stirred debate among Swift fans on Twitter. Some claimed to have downloaded the songs and commented on them. Others expressed feelings of confliction. Many were angry.
"Out of respect for Taylor i would never even dream of leaking it," tweeted @holdoncarpenter. "No need to leak an artists work whenever its released worldwide at midnight."
Swift had announced the upcoming release of Reputation and dropped its first single, "Look What You Made Me Do," in August as part of a music and social media comeback following months of staying out of the spotlight.
