Share on Facebook

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll probably be aware that Taylor Swift has made a massive comeback and has been dominating the charts for weeks with her new album, Lover, which has been sitting comfortably at number 1 on the iTunes and the Billboard chart.

Fans have been thrilled by the album’s success, although we hardly expected anything less from Swift, let’s be honest.

But, “unknown” band, Tool, may be about to come in and swipe the top spot right from under her feet, and, judging by the strong reactions on social media this week, Swifties are far from impressed.

Twitter has basically turned into a war of the fans. Keep scrolling to find out why everyone is freaking out.

It’s been quite a few long years since the star released her fast-selling album, 1989, but, this year, the star delighted fans when she returned from her musical hiatus.

Her comeback single “ME!,” released in April this year, smashed YouTube records, garnering a staggering 65 million views in just twenty-four hours.

The recent music video for Swift’s single, “You Need to Calm Down,” released in the middle of pride month this year, was the superstar’s major LGBTQ+ rights statement.

Featuring a whole host of queer celebs including the Fab Five from Netflix’s Queer Eye, YouTuber, Hannah Hart, and, of course, an array of fabulous drag queens, the star has certainly redeemed herself from her rocky past.

The trailblazing LGBTQ+ music video saw the star race ahead at the VMAs last month, bagging the award for “Best Music Music Video” and “Video For Good” for the hit single.

Titled Lover, the release is a big launch for Swift and is on the trajectory to become one of the biggest albums of the entire year.

Unsurprisingly, the album was an instant hit with fans and flew up the charts to take the top spot.

According to Billboard, the Grammy winner now ties with Elvis Presley for the 10-most Top 10s on the Billboard Hot 100 chart after her song “Lover” rose to number 10 during its second week of release.

Every single song from Lover entered the Hot 100 chart, breaking Billie Eilish’s previous record of fourteen singles.

The star may have been sitting pretty at number one, but that could be about to change.

The Los-Angeles-based band, made up of drummer Danny Carey, bassist Justin Chancellor (who took over from Paul D’Amour in 1995), guitarist Adam Jones, and vocalist Maynard James Keenan, has won 3 Grammy awards, proving popular within the alternative metal scene.

C’mon, this is Taylor Swift we’re talking about – we’re pretty sure that it’ll take something mindblowing to budge her off the number 1 spot seeing as her fan base is huge.

Experts have forecasted that the rock band will dethrone Swift and claim the top spot, knocking her album down to number 2.

We doubt that they are ready for their favorite star to lose the top spot.

Following the prediction, many angry Taylor Swift fans have taken to social media… and they aren’t impressed.

And it looks like Swifties are no exception. They are going in.

Taylor Swift fans have started a campaign to keep the album at the top spot. They seem pretty determined not to be defeated by Tool.

They seem delighted at the prospect of knocking Taylor off the number 1 spot.

People couldn’t believe how they were reacting. Although, let’s be honest, falling short fo the top spot this week isn’t exactly going to bother Taylor that much, considering, according to Forbes, her album had the most sales in the first week compared to any other album in the last 2 years. Not to mention the fact that she had a more-than-successful stint at this year’s VMAs. But something very awkward happened when Taylor bagged her awards –  the moment in which John Travolta handed Taylor Swift’s award to her drag queen lookalike… yikes. Keep scrolling to see the painfully awkward video.
