Taylor Swift's TikTok Debut Has Fans Reeling

The video-sharing app TikTok recently the world by storm and became the most downloaded social app in 2020 (via BBC). According to Wallaroo Media, the application has over 1 billion users and is available in over 150 countries. Though the app started as a place for the general public to create content, celebrities have taken TikTok by storm (via Cosmopolitan). From comedians like Amy Schumer and Jimmy Fallon to actors like Will Smith and Dwayne Johnson to models like Bella Hadid and Emily Ratajkowski, some of the biggest names in entertainment have hopped on the TikTok trend.

Many of the greatest celebrity TikToks are made by the app's musicians. Lizzo, Lil Nas X, and Jason Derulo are amongst the top singers dominating the app. While their comedic clips and killer dance moves garner millions of likes, the singers' reign may come to an end, following the debut of a new megastar (via People).

Taylor Swift shared a special announcement on her first TikTok

Early this morning, singer/songwriter Taylor Swift officially joined TikTok (via People). The "Cardigan" singer shared her first-ever video, which is set to the song "Screwface Capital" by rapper Dave, who is singing about Swift herself. In the video, Swift lip-syncs the song while cycling through different eras of her most recent albums, including "Folklore," "Evermore," "Fearless," and lastly "Red." Swift captioned the video, "Lots going on at the moment: Red (my version) vinyl is up for presale on my site and oh I'm on tiktok now let the games begin #SwiftTok."

Since joining TikTok, the 31-year-old has already garnered over 750,000 followers. Her first video is flooded with people expressing their excitement about Swift's TikTok presence. One person wrote, "TikTok has officially been verified by Taylor Swift," while another said "Trying so hard to stay calm rn."  The hashtag #SwiftTok also began trending on the app and features many videos of people dueting Swift's first TikTok. Though she's only released one video thus far, Swift's revelation that "Red: Taylor's Version" is currently available for presale on her website should be enough to keep her fans happy for now. Here's to hoping the singer's account is full of drafts she's gearing up to make public.
