Seeing purple? Wild theories about Speak Now (Taylor’s Version) are circulating FYP, and TikTok users seem to think they've cracked the code.
Why is Taylor rerecording, you ask? To reclaim her first six studio albums? Yes. To delight listeners with refurbished tunes? You bet. To throw everyone into a state of chaos? Absolutely.
The queen of the best breakup songs sent her fans into overdrive thanks to a Red (Taylor's Version) release date in November 2021. Since then, her loyal following is watching the cryptic singer's every move to uncover what album is coming up next.
TikTok appears to be on the opposite end of the color spectrum as of early 2022: now that Red got its time in the spotlight, fans are paying attention to all-things purple (the color of Swift's dress on Speak Now).

Is 'Speak Now (Taylor’s Version)' next?
A TikTok user is enjoying viral status for her Nancy Drew skills. In a now widely-circulated post, she claims that one of Taylor's Instagram posts intends to throw us off—the crooner is seen with a Starbucks cup (promoting her partnership with the brand) but seemingly hinting at something.
Many believe the Starbucks nod hints at 1989, as one of her lyrics on the album is often confused as "Got a long list of Starbucks lovers" when in reality it's "Got a long list of ex-lovers."
But that's too easy, right? The clever lady in the viral video noticed that there are three Gs on the back of Swift's Starbucks cup. What song starts with a three-finger G chord? "Speak Now."
Now that's technical!
Another TikToker believes that the random colors in Swift's 2022 calendar are hinting at an April release for Speak Now.
"Mean (Taylor's Version)" is beginning to circulate in early 2022, which is on the Speak Now album. Hmm...
Let's not forget the Empire State Building did post this purple gem in honor of the new year...

Others are making the 1989 claim, particularly when it comes to her colored calendar (video above).
You'll notice purple in April, which leads fans to think Speak Now is the next contender. But one commenter reveals telling 1989 lyrics that could hint at its possible April release: "The rest of the world was black and white, but we were in screaming color."

Of course, fans will just remain hopeful that she'll drop them both simultaneously. Keep an eye on #SwiftieTheories on TikTok for possible updates!
