Swift has been dropping clues about her next chapter in recent months. When she took the stage at October's 2018 AMAs, where she won multiple awards, T.Swift gave fans hope for what's to come.

"I always look at albums as chapters in my life. And I'm so—to the fans, I'm so happy that you like this one," Swift said of her reputation era. "I'm so happy that this means that you like this one. But I have to be really honest with you about something, I'm even more excited about the next chapter."
