After scrutinizing the lyrics of Taylor Swift’s latest album, Pigeons & Planes has come to the following conclusion: Reputation is more narcissistic than any Kanye West album. Known for his disproportionate ego, the Chicago rapper would not compete with Taylor Swift. According to the study of the American site, the singer talks about herself in her latest album more than Kanye West speaks about him in any of his projects. Of the 6700 words contained in Reputation’s lyrics , Taylor Swift speaks about her 678 times, using an average of 9.88 words to refer to her.
As the graph below shows, no Yeezus album thus exceeds the “percentage of egocentrism” of the last Taylor Swift record, the references to itself representing 10.12% of the lyrics. The Life Of Pablo , in which Kanye notably rapped “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex” , is hardly less narcissistic than Reputation with 10.11% of the lyrics about Kanye. Pigeons & Planes then broadened the comparison to the other projects of big names of hip-hop released recently. And again, the egocentrism of Taylor Swift has very little equal.
Big Sean I Decided’s album, Drake’s More Life playlist and Future ‘s Future album are the only projects to contain a “percentage of egocentrism” more important than Reputation. As the American site points out, the latest records by Kendrick Lamar (who has previously collaborated with Taylor Swift), A $ AP Rocky, JAY-Z, J. Cole and Chance The Rapper are all less self-centered than Reputation . Always in open war with Kanye West, whom she attacks several times in Reputation , the queen of pop would have nothing to envy to the egocentrism of the latter.
