Kanye West altered the composition of his album “The Life of Pablo” a few years after its release, followed by his other albums on a streaming service. alterations sparked controversy regarding the finality of recorded music releases. Taylor Swift and Kanye West are not the best of friends, but it appears that she is following in his footsteps by editing the “Me!” song long after its initial release.
The lead single from Lover’s Brendan Urie, “Me!,” was released on April 26, but fans have noticed that the version of the song available on Apple Music is slightly different. For this post, Apple Music has replaced the lyrics “Hey kids! Spelling is enjoyable!” with a drum fill at approximately 1:55. Meanwhile, the song’s Spotify version remains unchanged. Uncertain is which version of the song will appear on the Lover album.
Swift has previously stated in an interview that “for this song, we really don’t want the song to be complete” and takes it very seriously, although the reason for the removal of the lyrics has not yet been clarified or confirmed. Therefore, the lyrics—that was a wise studio decision. We thought, “All right, let’s say, “Hey, kids! We wanted everyone to know that the song wasn’t taken seriously because it wasn’t a traditional love song.
This lyric modification could be Kanye’s second album reference: The second track on “Lover” is titled “Cruel Summer,” which may be a reference to Kanye West’s GOOD Music feature. In 2012, a tribute album to his Brutal Summer compilation was released.
