Tylor Swift has given the world a new song which she dropped last night. Called “You Need To Calm Down” the bop has already circulated some buzz for essentially telling anti-LGBT trolls to zip it and get on this side of history. 

“Sunshine on the street at the parade,” the song goes. “But you would rather be in the dark ages / Makin’ that sign must’ve taken all night.”

She even mentions media equality watchdogs GLAAD, although you have to cipher it out from the lyrics.

“Why are you mad when you could be GLAAD? (You could be GLAAD)”

The song also takes aim at people who futilely verbalize their homophobia.

“And control your urges to scream about all the people you hate/’Cause shade never made anybody less gay.” 

The tune seems to be mostly about Swift's success and those who are trying to bring her down. As one line goes: "Like can you just not step on my gown/You need to calm down." 

Swift's new album titled "Lover" will be released in August. And the official music video for “You Need To Calm Down” will be released on June 17.
