Whether viewers were Ready For It or not, Taylor Swift returned to Studio 8H this weekend.

Taylor Swift's newest album sold more than 717,000 copies in the U.S.in its first day of release, according to Buzzangle Music, putting the pop star on pace to potentially beat out week-one sales for her previous blockbuster. The album, however, has been controversially withheld from streaming services this week.

Like it or not, Taylor Swift is back in a big way.

The Grammy victor dropped her new album, Reputation, shortly before midnight on Thursday, and it appears to be everything her Swifties have been hoping for. Maybe she just wanted to focus on the music - or, maybe she has a cameo later. The highlight tracks on the album are "Getaway Car" and "Gorgeous".

The Browns, of course, have no hopes of a second-half turnaround that would suddenly vault them to playoff contention. Kizer was stuffed at the line, and time expired before the Browns could stop the clock or attempt another play.

"Swift first performed her upbeat second single, ".Ready for It?" off of "Reputation", complete with backup dancers, a fog machine, and electronic dance track.

One lyric states: "Friends don't try to trick you / Get you on the phone and mind-twist you", referring to her infamous phone call with West that was leaked by Kardashian.

USA Today's Maeve McDermott said the album was a "fully formed look at a singer in love, and in control", while Jon Caramanica at the New York Times called it "bombastic, unexpected and sneakily potent".
