Taylor Swift’s “I Did Something Bad” Song Review

I Did Something Bad is the 3rd track off Taylor Swift’s 2017 album Reputation and features production by Max Martin and Shellback.

Everything Mainstream Consensus:


“After one listen it becomes clear Swift is ready to throw punches and get messy. I Did Something Bad is the first Taylor Swift song to feel remotely bad (not in quality, but in attitude), despite her hit Bad Blood trying its best, and it’s so enthralling. Previous track End Game may have had some lackluster production, but Max Martin and Shellback have redeemed themselves already with this stellar track. The only mistake was placing this track so high up in the album order, as it sets a near unmatchable standard for the rest of the album to follow.”
