Whenever Taylor Swift releases a song, the internet loves to theorize who it could be about. Now that curiosity has shifted to her ex-BF. Calvin Harris just released a new song, featuring John Newman, and people are speculating that the lyrics hint that Swift cheated on the Scottish DJ.
Swift and Harris reportedly ended their relationship a little over a month ago. Since then, Swift has been hot and heavy with actor Tom Hiddleston. Naturally, everyone is looking for a gossip-y tale. And rumors were already circulating that Swift could have cheated with Hiddleston while still coupled up with Harris, given the quick turnaround in her relationship status. So “Olé!” makes it all too easy for the world to assume the song is about Tay.

The theory is that the song is written from Hiddleston’s perspective. The lyrics are awfully coincidental (low key, Loki…get it?). “Low key, you won't tell none of your friends about me / You won't tell them I occupy your dreams and your thoughts.” In the chorus, Newman sings, “A good girl and take trips with your boyfriend / Being attentive, continue to pretend.”
However, Us Weekly spoke to a source claiming to be close to Harris who revealed the song was actually written months ago. The timing is interesting, but we just don't know what to believe. As we always do, we will wait for some form of retaliation or response from T. Swift before we make up our minds.
