If you don't caption your next selfie with the lyrics, 'If I was out flashing my dollars, I'd be a bitch not a baller...' you're not doing it right.

Today is the day, Lovers. Taylor Swift has shed her snake skin and she has finally arrived with a soft, pastel rainbow-coloured album of romantic ballads, upbeat bops and one absolutely banging song about the sexism she's faced in the industry. (Complete with a lyric about Leonardo DiCaprio, no less.)

The 18-track album, Lover, is jam packed with lyrics that rival some of Taylor's most iconic work. This record has everything: love, happiness, devastatingly emotional references, recommendations for your next trip to London and even a sound bite from her Cats co-star Idris Elba.
