Taylor Swift dropped an acoustic version of 'Anti-Hero' but it seems there's a reason behind it.
In an effort to keep Drake from snagging the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Top 10, Taylor Swift has been “Willow”-ing her latest single, “Anti-Hero,” from Midnights. What’s “Willow”-ing?, you may ask, on a Friday filled with online shopping to cope with the fact you didn’t get the Eras Tour tickets? During Swift’s forgotten child Evermore’s era, she released several different versions of her lead single, “Willow.” Five, to be exact. Now, Swift is doing the same thing to “Anti-Hero,” possibly to try to earn another record: most weeks at No. 1 on the Artist 100, Hot 100, and Billboard 200, an honor currently held by … Drake, with 16 weeks. Swift released seven versions of the song, including one with frequent collaborator Jack Antonoff’s band Bleachers.
Ah very clever of her!
