Taylor Swift gushes over her London Boy and has surprise cameo from Idris Elba on Lover


Superstar Taylor Swift has dropped her seventh studio album today (August 23) – the first one she fully owns the copyright of.

The 18-track pop record has a number of songs that are bound to have you spinning around your bedroom, including hits such as ME! and You Need To Calm Down, as well as new songs like Cruel Summer, The Man and Paper Rings.

There are of course some heartbreakers on there too, with a devastating song Swift wrote about her mum’s battle with cancer, called Soon You’ll Get Better (featuring the Dixie Chicks) and Death By A Thousand Cuts, an emotional song about her love stories of the past.

But there’s one song in particular that fans are really going wild over, and that’s London Boy.

The eleventh track on Lover is a catchy tune in which the 29-year-old American gushes over her actor boyfriend of three years, Joe Alwyn.

Until now the pair have kept their relationship relatively private, but in this song, Swift sings openly about how she loves the 28-year-old London Boy, with lyrics such as: “They say home is where the heart is, but that’s not where mine is.”

People are also obsessed with her inclusion of British words and phrases like “I fancy you”, “high tea” and “uni” and at one point, she even attempts a cockney accent saying, “Babes, don’t threaten me with a good time”.

Of course there are some who have branded this “cringey” but honestly it’s all just great fun.
