The song, along with another titled “Delicate,” was added to Spotify this week as a part of the company’s Spotify Singles series, which invites artists to record two songs its in-house New York studio. The first is supposed to be a new recording, while the second should be a cover. 

Once the internet heard Swift’s track, people flocked to Twitter to share their reactions. Reviews were pretty mixed - many said they didn’t like it.

Fans of the singer, however, were supportive, going so far as to say the band respects Swift, citing their group hug at the 2016 Grammys when she won album of the year for “1989.” Earth, Wind & Fire presented the award that night.
