Nominations for the upcoming 60th Annual Grammy Awards were released on Tuesday …with a glaring omission, or so it seemed to some: Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato did not receive a single nod from the Recording Academy. Although many celebrated the cultural diversity of the nominees across categories, including Latin artists Cardi B, Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee, Gomez and Lovato fans felt the sting of the Grammy snub on behalf of their favorite performers.

Fans of the two superstars, known as Selenators and Lovatics, shared their wrath on social media immediately following the announcement, some even tagged The Recording Academy. “Nobody deserved a Grammy nomination more than Demi,”  one follower wrote. A Gomez devotee tweeted: “I really thought that Selena was going to get her grammy nomination like It Ain’t Me was HUGE it was the biggest dance track of the year.”

Here are more spicy reactions from disappointed fans:

But going back to the Grammy's – Let Me Love You is Demi Lovato's BEST work. Vocally stunning!!! Explain yourself. @RecordingAcad

Neither of the former Disney stars have commented on the Grammys’ nominations. Lovato is currently promoting the upcoming release of her music video for the title track off her album “Tell Me You Love Me,” while Gomez continues to climb the charts with her Marshmello collab, “Wolves.”

The Recording Academy didn’t just take heat from Selenators and Lovatics. Loyalists of Ed Sheeran felt that although he got nods for Best Pop Solo Performance and Best Pop Vocal Album, he deserved nominations in major categories like Record, Song, or Album of the Year.

Reggaeton star Nicky Jam is mourning the death of his grandmother. In a heartfelt post on Instagram, the singer showed his affection for his abuela, whom he called his angel. “Today my grandmother went to heaven. She was 91 years old. She was my grandma, my mom and now she is an angel that watches over me from the sky. I will miss you so much, your great advice, the coffee you made in the morning, your food, those long conversations. I love you. May you rest in peace,” he shared on Nov. 19 with an endearing photo of himself kissing her forehead.

Nicky Jam’s career is on fire. He wowed the crowd with his performance of “El Amante” at the Latin Grammy awards last week, and he’s recently rolled out successful collaborations with Shakira (“Perro Fiel”) and Daddy Yankee and Romeo Santos (“Bella y Sensual”). No matter how in-demand he is, the singer would make always make time to visit his grandma, who suffered from Alzheimer’s, in Puerto Rico. In recent posts, he expressed sadness that she couldn’t recognize him the last few times he saw her.

The 36-year-old singer of Puerto Rican and Dominican descent did not reveal the details of her death, but seemed devastated by her loss. He shared a black and white portrait of himself looking sad and pensive with no caption on Nov. 19. His followers commented on the image, showering him with love and support.

The artist, whose real name is Nicky Caminero, is turning to his his wife Colombian model Angelica Cruz, 35, at this difficult time. He married Cruz in a romantic ceremony in Medellin in February. “She is the only person that makes me feel real in this surreal life in the music industry,” he told Reuters about the love of his life. “Everything is crazy and she makes me feel secure and like a normal human being. She is really kind and I said: ‘I have to keep her.’ I had many bad relationships in the past, nobody like her. She is a jewel. So I said: ‘I’m going to marry this woman in front of the whole world.'”

The singer is currently on tour with reggaeton duo Plan B.

Celebs continue to rally help for the victims affected by natural disasters in the last couple of months. Days after Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony put together a star-studded telethon concert titled “Somos Una Voz Live” in multiple cities, Jay-Z threw his third annual charity concert,“TIDAL X: Brooklyn” in New York City, but this time around he donated all ticket sales to organizations supporting victims of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria, as well as the earthquake in Mexico.

In the last two years, the music and entertainment platform TIDAL donated proceeds to Robin Hood, the largest poverty-fighting organization in New York and the New World Foundation, which aims to advance “positive community relations and effect systemic change for the development and sustainability of just societies,” as it states on its website. Bacardi, the iconic spirits brand, sponsored the presentation, also donating $1.3 million specifically to TIDAL X: Brooklyn charities.

This year, was all about the multiple cities that have faced devastation from recent natural disasters.

Among those joining the good cause and eventful night were Jay Z, Jennifer Lopez, Stevie Wonder, DJ Khaled, Chris Brown, Cardi B, Fat Joe, Daddy Yankee, Luis Fonsi and a special appearance from Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda.

Lopez, being in her home state, performed throwback songs like “Jenny From The Block” and “I’m Real,” with a backdrop of New York City and the 6 train line, the subway the runs through her old neighborhood in the Bronx. Before composer and lyricist Miranda introduced his fellow Puerto Rican onto the stage, he shared a heartfelt message: “For every generation, there are moments that define you… These are the moment’s history remembers. Tonight, through music, TIDAL has brought together people across generations, backgrounds together to support the people of Puerto Rico. On behalf of mi gente (my people), thank you! We refuse to stay silent.”

Jay Z stayed true to the New York theme of the night by performing “Empire State of Mind,” while Latin stars like Daddy Yankee performed his 2004 smash single “Gasolina,” and Cardi B stole the show with her No. 1 hit “Bodak Yellow,” which had the audience yelling for an encore.

The concert aired live on Tidal. Donate to the cause here.

When Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony come together for absolutely anything, you know it's going to be good. The former couple organized a star-studded benefit concert to help the disaster relief efforts in Puerto Rico, Mexico, Florida, Texas, and the Caribbean. One Voice: Somos Live!, hosted by J Lo and Alex Rodriguez, aired in Spanish on Telemundo and Univision at 8 p.m. on Oct. 14, and the third hour aired in English on NBC at 10 p.m. The whole thing was broadcasted live from Marlins Park in Miami as well as a closed set in LA. Before the concert, Jennifer and Alex sat down with E! News, where she revealed just how instrumental Alex was in helping raise funds.

"He calls me on the way there when I'm going there and he's like, 'Baby I got the MLB and I got the head of the Yankees to donate this much and you can announce that there too and say this and say that,'" she said. "Just to have a partner like that...I didn't ask him, you know I'm from Puerto Rico, this is personal to me, it's my thing. But it was just like, 'No, it's your thing, it's my thing too.' So for me it was just like you know...amazing."

Some of the celebrities that performed included: Jennifer, Marc, Demi Lovato, Maroon 5, Stevie Wonder, Ricky Martin, Chris Martin, Jamie Foxx, Mary J. Blige, Andra Day, Maxwell, Camila, Julia Michaels, Gente de Zona, DJ Khaled, Magic!, Prince Royce, Nicky Jam, Romeo Santos, Alejandro Sanz, and Daddy Yankee. Other celebrities that made appearances included Christina Aguilera, The Chainsmokers, Sean "Diddy" Combs, Vin Diesel, Selena Gomez, Kim Kardashian, Nicole Richie, Sofia Vergara, Jada Pinkett Smith, Ciara, and so many more. The funds raised during the telethon will go to Feeding America, Save the Children, Habitat for Humanity, United Way, UNICEF, and Unidos for Puerto Rico. Jennifer, Marc and Alex also set up a gofundme that is still open and has raised almost $700,000.

In the wake of Hurricanes Harvey and Maria, Jennifer Aniston is using her star power to help those in need. The Friends alum has donated $1 million to hurricane relief efforts, splitting the money in half between the Ricky Martin Foundation for Puerto Rico and the American Red Cross. On Thursday, Ricky took to Twitter to thank Jennifer for her generous contribution, writing, "Jennifer Aniston U R amazing . . . We will never forget. U R saving lives Jenn #Allin4PR."

We will never forget. U R saving lives Jenn #Allin4PR

- Ricky Martin (@ricky_martin) October 12, 2017

According to E! News, Jennifer "is concerned that so much is still needed to be done for the victims of these recent hurricanes, especially Puerto Rico, where there is still no power to most of the island. She hopes this inspires others to give what they can." Several stars, including Daddy Yankee and Jennifer Lopez, have also made $1 million donations.

Jennifer Lopez is embracing the people of Puerto Rico and putting her power to good use.

The superstar is teaming up with her ex-husband Marc Anthony and boyfriend Alex Rodriguez for a special benefit concert and telethon titled One Voice: Somos Live! A Concert for Disaster Relief on Oct. 14 (tickets can be purchased here).

“Right when the hurricane hit Puerto Rico, Marc and I got on the phone and started talking about what we could do,” Lopez, 48, tells PEOPLE exclusively about the event. “Alex was right next to me and he started spitballing things we could do. From there, we just started organizing as many people as we could in our specific arenas and pulled this thing together.”

Latin superstars including Anthony, Daddy Yankee, Gente De Zona and more will be performing at Marlins Park stadium in Miami while Lopez, Demi Lovato, Maroon 5, Ricky Martin, Gwen Stefani, Stevie Wonder and more will be taking the stage in Los Angeles.

Other famous faces scheduled to appear include Ellen DeGeneres, Ciara, Selena Gomez, Kim Kardashian West, Gina Rodriguez, Ryan Seacrest, Sofia Vergara and more. Funds raised from the telethon will benefit Feeding America, Save the Children, Habitat for Humanity, Unidos for Puerto Rico, United Way, Hispanic Federation’s UNIDOS Fund and UNICEF.

After personally calling almost every single star invited to perform or make an appearance, Lopez — who has family in Puerto Rico — says she has “so much respect now for everybody who does that all the time!”

“Everybody’s been so receptive and just ‘What can we do? How can we help?’ It just restores your faith that there’s so many good people in this world that want to help each other,” she adds. “That’s what the message of the night is. We’re here, we’re here for you, you’re not forgotten in Puerto Rico.”

Lopez has also remained very friendly with Anthony (with whom she shares 9-year-old twins Max and Emme), 49, since their divorce in 2014, and says teaming up with him was a no-brainer.

“There’s just no question about it when it comes to things like this,” she says about simultaneously working with her ex-husband and boyfriend. “The truth is, we are all one. We are all family. We are doing this because it’s the right thing to do. Our community needs us right now, and we are very aware that we are leaders in our community. If we step out and do something, hopefully people will follow and do the same.”

Rodriguez, 42, has also brought in donations and opened doors to the sports and business world.

“Honestly, his contribution has been massive in this effort,” says the Shades of Blue star. “We couldn’t have done a lot of the fundraising without him. He brought in a whole different faction of people that Hollywood and the music industries aren’t really connected to. We were very lucky to have him involved and leading this with us.”

Now just two days away from the concert, Lopez — who is gearing up to shoot a new movie — is marveling over how everything has come together. “This is my new full-time job,” she says, laughing. “It’s been crazy, but it’s a passion project. When you want to do something, you can do it! Everybody has stepped up to the plate to help pull this off.”

One Voice: Somos Live! will air in Spanish simultaneously on Telemundo and Univision beginning at 8 p.m. EST, and NBC will join in the third hour to broadcast in English at 10 p.m. PST.

Marc Anthony posted a video on Twitter Wednesday night alongside Vin Diesel and rapper Nicky Jam, announcing that a benefit concert for the devastated island was being planned.

“We here, we’re strategizing, all in the name of bringing you the best show possible,” Anthony says.

In the video, Jam teases a new song collaboration with the Fast and Furious franchise star.

“Vin is very, very shy when it comes about his music,” he says. “I’m the guy who got him into the studio for the first time, and I’m trying to get him out of the studio now.”

Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez have also joined forces with Anthony for a multi-city benefit concert and telethon that’ll include stars such as Camila Cabello, Demi Lovato, Maroon 5, Ricky Martin, Gwen Stefani, Chris Martin, Jamie Foxx, Mary J. Blige and more.

The One Voice: Somos Live! performances are scheduled in Miami and Los Angeles and will be broadcast on Univision and Telemundo.

The former couple recruited an impressive roster of participants, among them Diesel, Alex Rodriguez, Bruno Mars, Daddy Yankee, Ed Sheeran, Jada Pinkett Smith, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Luis Fonsi, Pitbull and many others.

Daddy Yankee is helping Puerto Rico, where he was born and still lives, with a $1 million donation toward hurricane relief. That is on top of the $300,000 he already gave to local organizations and his efforts to fly in much needed supplies. The star returned to the island on Sept. 28 after being on tour and had an emotional reunion with his wife and kids, his rep told People. He's been married to Mireddys González since 1994, and the two are parents to daughters Yamilet and Jesaaelys and son Jeremy.

"As a Puerto Rican who lives on the island, I felt the call, that the rebuilding of my country has to be for a long term," he said in a statement. "In this initial phase, I want to make sure that every person has a plate to eat. In the long run, my commitment is work to ensure that the largest number of families on the island have a safe roof."

The reggaeton artist revealed his $1 million donation will be divided among Feeding America, Habitat for Humanity, the American Red Cross, and local organizations in Puerto Rico. "Honestly, I just got up and my heartbeat was like a crazy adrenaline rush," he continued. "I said, 'I got to do something. I got to do something because I live there, my family's there.' I asked myself, 'Okay, what can I do right now? Gather supplies, get everybody involved, and try to bring all the supplies to Puerto Rico.' That's what I'm working on right now with the community, my fans, and everybody in a position of power to donate for Puerto Rico." The 40-year-old is yet another artist who has joined the efforts to rebuild after the catastrophic damage left behind by Hurricane Maria.

Daddy Yankee has donated $1 million toward relief efforts in his native island of Puerto Rico, PEOPLE confirms.

The 40-year-old rapper, who was born in San Juan, returned to Puerto Rico Thursday, reuniting with his wife and children after being on tour, a rep for him tells PEOPLE.

The rep says it was his first time seeing the devastation caused by Hurricane Maria.

On top of donating $1 million, the rapper has already given $300,000 toward local organizations, and is currently in the process of flying supplies to the island.

“As a Puerto Rican who lives on the island, I felt the call, that the rebuilding of my country has to be for a long term,” he tells PEOPLE in a statement. “In this initial phase, I want to make sure that every person has a plate to eat. In the long run, my commitment is work to ensure that the largest number of families on the island have a safe roof.”

 

The “Despacito” singer, who lives in Puerto Rico full time and whose real name is Ramon Ayala Rodriguez, said the $1 million will be divided among Feeding America, the American Red Cross, Habitat for Humanity and local organizations.

Speaking to PEOPLE recently, the musician said that what is occurring in Puerto Rico is “unbelievable.”

“There’s no power and no communication in Puerto Rico,” he said. “Right now everybody is trying to rebuild the country, waiting for help. Right now, we got at least one more week for water and food, but after that it’s going to be chaos. We don’t want that.”

“Honestly, I just got up and my heartbeat was like a crazy adrenaline rush. I said, “I got to do something. I got to do something because I live there, my family’s there.” I asked myself, “Okay, what can I do right now? Gather supplies, get everybody involved and try to bring all the supplies to Puerto Rico.” That’s what I’m working on right now with the community, my fans and everybody in a position of power to donate for Puerto Rico,” he continued.

“Help is on the way. Everybody is involved right now — it’s a long process,” he added. “It’s a big mobilization of supplies. We have the government mobilizing different emergency groups in Puerto Rico, everything that we the artists are gathering as well. It takes a strategy and infrastructure to make that happen and we are organizing. But help is on the way.”

His donation is already on top of 10 trucks full of supplies donated by his fans at his concerts, according to the AP.

When you read the names of the artists who are set to perform at the third annual Tidal X Brooklyn concert, you are going to audibly gasp. JAY-Z, Jennifer Lopez, DJ Khaled, and Daddy Yankee are just a few of the stars coming together on Oct. 17 to raise awareness and funds to support the relief and recovery efforts for the natural disasters that have struck the world in the last few weeks. According to a press release, 100 percent of the proceeds of the concert will be donated to organizations including The Empire State Relief and Recovery Effort for Puerto Rico, Global Giving, All Hands Volunteers, Kids in Need Foundation, Direct Relief, One America Appeal, Greater Houston Community Foundation, American Civil Liberties Union, Miami Community Foundation, Habitat For Humanity in Puerto Rico, and more.

The concert will be hosted by radio personality Angie Martinez at Barclays Center in New York City and is set to have special appearances from Rosie Perez and Lin-Manuel Miranda. Many of the names taking the stage have already donated to hurricane relief, including J Lo, Daddy Yankee, and Fat Joe. Bacardí, one of the presenting sponsors, has also donated $1.3 million to the Tidal X Brooklyn charities on top of the $3 million it gave to Puerto Rico, Florida, the Caribbean, the Bahamas, and Mexico this month.

Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony continue to prove exes can still be friends. The two have come together and formed Somos Una Voz (We Are One Voice), an alliance joining big names like Alex Rodriguez, Bruno Mars, Daddy Yankee, Ed Sheeran, Jada Pinkett Smith, Luis Fonsi, Maluma, Narciso Rodriguez, Pitbull, Ricky Martin, and Vin Diesel to work together "to rush food, shelter, medicine, power, and communications to those in need from the effects of the recent natural disasters," according to a press release.

As part of their initiative, the alliance launched a GoFundMe campaign that has so far raised over $30,000. "Together, our alliance members reach more than 1 billion followers on social media across the planet. Just imagine what we could do with big and small donations from the people we reach, our corporate friends and ourselves. That's it. That's the big idea. Together, we can become one powerful voice that brings hope and relief to the people that need it most," says its website.

Marc Anthony spoke about the alliance and all the support they've received on Good Morning America, saying, "You'll be hearing from us soon with some major announcements coming up in the next week. If anybody is listening, just know that we are coming, just know that we care. We are here, ready, willing, and able." Jennifer herself donated $1 million from the proceeds of her Las Vegas residency to help hurricane relief in Puerto Rico.

On Sunday, Jennifer Lopez joined New York governor Andrew Cuomo in a press conference announcing she was donating $1 million from the proceeds of her Las Vegas show to aid hurricane relief in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean.

First in Spanish and then in English, Lopez, 48, shared her announcement in a speech that was live-streamed on Twitter.

“Alex Rodriguez and I, who are both New Yorkers, are utilizing all our resources and relationships in entertainment, sports and business to garner support for Puerto Rican and Caribbean relief efforts,” Lopez said.

In addition to her own personal contribution, Lopez announced that the New York Yankees and the MLB “have both committed to join us in giving a significant contribution to this cause.”

Lopez shared that together with her ex-husband Marc Anthony, they were working to spearhead “additional relief efforts” to “rush the relief that our brothers and sisters in Mexico, Puerto Rico and the Caribbean desperately need.”

She announced she was also working with Dallas Mavericks owner and Shark Tank star Mark Cuban and Dallas Mavericks Puerto Rican player J.J. Barea to send over two airplanes filled with supplies and generators to San Juan, Puerto Rico — they’re just waiting for air clearance.

“I’ve been so moved by the initial responses,” she continued. “They have been overwhelming, nobody has said no. Anybody we’ve have called is right there asking what they can do. They’re all very eager to help.”

#PuertoRico needs our help. Thank you @JLo for joining us today. https://t.co/VFHVcMu4To

— Andrew Cuomo (@NYGovCuomo) September 24, 2017

In her speech, Lopez confirmed that she still has not heard from all of her family members in Puerto Rico.

“My cousin and I and our family still haven’t been able to hear from all of our family over there and we are concerned for them and for everybody on the island,” she said, echoing the news she revealed on Thursday.

“The conditions are dire,” the star told PEOPLE. “We need to do as much as we can to help the people of Puerto Rico.”

In the meantime, Lopez is doing everything she can to help raise awareness and money for Puerto Rico in the aftermath of the devastating storm.

“Jen and Alex are making personal phone calls to their celebrity friends and heads of corporations and asking them to donate either funds, planes or money to get supplies to Puerto Rico,” says a source.

Lopez, Rodriguez and Anthony are among other stars with ties to the island making impassioned pleas for donations and aid. Ricky Martin, “Despacito” singer Daddy Yankee and Rosie Perez are also using their star power to help raise awareness and money.

“What’s on my mind is what’s going on in Puerto Rico. The devastation is beyond belief,” J Lo said in an Instagram post backstage from her Las Vegas residency show. “Me and my cousin still haven’t been able to hear from our families over there.

“What’s foremost on my mind and many others is trying to figure out the best way to help,” she added. “Today, Puerto Rico needs our help. I urge you to support and donate to the efforts of the First Lady of Puerto Rico, Beatriz Areizaga. Together we can help rebuild our island, and the Caribbean.”

Hurricane Maria caused devastation as it passed over Puerto Rico on Wednesday, including in the colorful La Perla neighborhood, best known to non-residents as the location showcased in the music video for Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s summer hit “Despacito.”

However, as the Caribbean island begins its struggle to get back on its feet in the days following the storm, the Daily Beast took some heat on Thursday for using the pop song as a lens through which to view the human suffering.

The piece, titled “Famed ‘Despacito’ Neighborhood Destroyed by Hurricane Maria as Puerto Rico Struggles in the Dark” from writers Christopher Dickey and Pablo Venes, has been slammed by critics for being insensitive toward the people whose lives were destroyed, and to a part of the world that existed long before “Despacito” brought it to a wider audience.

“Hey @dailybeast where do you get off with this bulls— headline/framing,” GQ contributor Joshua Rivera wrote on Twitter.

One paragraph equating the song’s sexually charged lyrics to the tragedy experienced by the people of Puerto Rico was singled out as the most objectionable portion of the story.

“There’s a line in ‘Despacito’ where Luis Fonsi sings about making love on the beach in Puerto Rico ‘until the waves scream, ‘Oh Lord!’ (‘Hasta que las olas griten ‘Ay Bendito!’) But as the waves and wind screamed on Wednesday it was the people who were crying and praying,” the section reads.

After 16 weeks at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart, ‘Despacito,’ by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee, featuring Justin Bieber has been dethroned by Taylor Swift’s “Look What You Made Me Do,” just one week after its release.

The Spanish-language smash hit tied with Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men’s 1995 “One Sweet Day” for the longest run at the No.1 spot. If the track had stayed at the top for one more week, it would’ve made history as the longest-running song at No. 1 of all time. But the possibility dwindled once Swift released her long-awaited song—the Grammy winner’s first solo single in three years.

This single is the first off of Swift’s forthcoming album, Reputation, which is set to drop on Nov. 10th. It soared from the 77th spot on the chart, where it debuted, to No. 1. It also earned the highest weekly streams and sales for a song in 2017.

Last week, Mariah Carey and Taylor Swift fans banded together on social media to help Swift’s song get to the top spot in hopes of putting the ‘Despacito’ phenomenon to an end and not letting it surpass Carey’s record. They urged fans to stream the song as much as possible with one user tweeting, “All fandoms must unite to stop Despacito from breaking Mariah’s record by buying and streaming Taylor Swift’s new song.”

Ending that streak wasn’t a difficulty for Swifties after its strong start. “Look What You Made Me Do” immediately broke records, garnering the most YouTube global streams in a span of 24 hours, according to Billboard.

Taylor Swift dethroned Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s “Despacito” on the No. 1 spot of the Billboard Hot 100 with her song, “Look What You Made Me Do,” and fans rushed to social media to thank the singer for stopping the “Despacito” takeover.

“We knew the only person who could stop the evil that is Despacito was Taylor Swift. We knew and we were right,” one user tweeted.

“Thank you @taylorswift13 for stopping that crap of a song called “Despacito” from breaking @MariahCarey‘s legendary @billboard record,” tweeted another.

Indeed, “Despacito” logged its 16th week at No. 1 on Sept. 9, matching Mariah Carey’s and Boyz II Men’s “One Sweet Day,” which reigned for 16 weeks from 1995 to 1996. It was the longest command in the chart’s archives. Now, on the new Sept. 16 list, “Despacito” dropped to No. 2, which “Look What You Made Me Do” taking the top spot.

“Look What You Made Me Do” also launched with the top weekly download sales this year: 353,000 in the week ending Aug. 31. Swift is the 13th woman with at least five Hot 100 No. 1 singles. Carey leads the pack with 18 No. 1 songs. Swift has also now topped the Hot 100 with the first single from each of her last three albums: “Look What You Made Me do,” “Shake It Off” and “Never.”

Swift is also the first woman to top the Hot 100 this year. “Look What You Made Me Do” is the first song by a woman unaccompanied by a male artist to rule the Hot 100 since Adele’s “Hello.”

Taylor Swift‘s “Look What You Made Me Do” dominated the charts and the conversation in the music world last week, but its reign is now being threatened… by another Taylor Swift song.

Early Sunday morning, Swift released the next single off her upcoming “Reputation” album titled, “…Ready For It?”, and the song has quickly soared to the No. 2 spot on the iTunes download charts and given the pop star the top two spots on the list. The two songs topped Logic’s “1-800-273-8255” and the big hit of the summer, Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s “Despacito.”

“…Ready For It?” was first teased on Saturday, as a snippet from the song was used on ESPN to introduce the Alabama/Florida State football game. The song takes a darker turn than much of Swift’s past work and describes the start of a new relationship.

“Knew he was a killer/ First time that I saw him,” read the lyrics. “Wondered how many girls/ he had loved and left haunted…Younger than my exes/ But he act like such a man, so/ I see nothing better/ I keep him forever/ Like a vendetta…”

Swift‘s “Reputation” will be released Nov. 10. Check out fans’ reaction to the new single below.

If you haven’t already heard, “Despacito” by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee featuring Justin Bieber now ties Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men’s 1995 smash hit “One Sweet Day” as the longest running No. 1 song on the charts at 16 weeks. The Spanish-language track has been topping charts and breaking records—such as most watched video on YouTube—all summer long but now, people are calling for the “Despacito” frenzy to end. 

If the song makes it just one more week at the top of the Hot 100 chart, it will take the throne as the longest-running song at No. 1 of all time, and Mariah Carey fans are not happy. They are subsequently rooting for Taylor Swift’s newest song “Look What You Made Me Do” to reach the top of the charts to end the “Despacito” streak.

Fans of Carey anxiously awaited the release of T.Swift’s “LWYMMD” and since it dropped, they’ve urged people to stream the song as much as possible.
