Taylor Swift fans speculate that she has found a clever way to finish Scooter Braun after buying the rights to all music from her first six albums last year.
The singer excited on Sunday tweeted a cover of her song Look What You Made Me Do, which she revealed, was used in the latest installment of Killing Eve.
The terrifying reinterpretation apparently comes from a group called Jack Leopards & The Dolphin Club, but the band doesn’t seem to exist.

“HIGHLY BOUGHT about this cover from lwymmd on @KillingEve by Jack leopards & the dolphin club !!” Taylor wrote.
However, a quick search for the band reveals just that one Taylor cover that has been attributed to them.
In addition, Taylor’s producer pseudonym, Nils Sjoberg, is featured on the producer credits.
She used the name in 2016 on the song This Is What You Came For by her now ex-boyfriend Calvin Harris.

Rumor has it that Taylor’s brother Austin, 28, is singing the cover.
As Dailymail.com reported in January, Grammy winner Killing Eve executive producer Phoebe Waller-Bridge asked if her little brother could sing on the soundtrack.
In addition, Austin’s Twitter handle was ‘The Dolphin Club’.
Other fans speculate that it is Taylor’s voice, but digitally lowered so it sounds like a man.
The 30-year-old singer became involved in a feud with her former label boss Scott Borchetta earlier this year after selling Big Machine records to Scooter Braun, who acquired the rights to all of Taylor’s music recorded under the label.

Taylor claimed at the time that she had never had the chance to buy her own music herself, and in December she doubled her comments, saying she had ‘denied’ the opportunity to ‘own her recordings.’
She said, “I’ve spent 10 years of my life rigorously trying to buy my masters outright, and then I was denied that opportunity, and I just don’t want that to happen to another artist if I can do something about it.
“At least I want to raise my hand and say,” This is something an artist should be able to recoup over the course of his deal – not as a renegotiation trick – and something that artists should perhaps have the first right to refuse. “
“God, I would have paid so much for it! Anything to own my work that was an actual selling option, but it was not given to me. ‘

Although she cannot repurchase her masters, the ME! hitmaker still has some ‘power’ with her early music, because she is the one who wrote the songs.
Taylor also revealed that she plans to re-record her first six albums this year so she can own her own versions of the songs.
She added to Billboard magazine’s Women in Music song: “Fortunately, there is power in writing your music. Every week we get a dozen synch requests to use Shake It Off in an ad or Blank Space in a movie trailer, and we say no to any of them.
“And the reason I will be recording my music again next year is because I want my music to live on. I want it to be in movies, I want it to be in commercials. But I only want that if I own it. ‘
Taylor and Scooter’s most recent feud came when the singer claimed that Big Machine had tried to dissuade her from performing all her old material at the American Music Awards (AMAs) in November, and also banned her from using her songs in a planned Netflix documentary
Taylor and Scooter’s most recent feud came when the singer claimed that Big Machine had tried to dissuade her from performing all her old material at the American Music Awards (AMAs) and forbid her from using her tracks on any planned Netflix- documentary.
The Lover singer was finally allowed to perform her songs at the awards ceremony in November 2019, after Big Machine released a statement denying the allegations and insisting there was “false information.”
The company said, “As a Taylor Swift partner for over a decade, we were shocked to see her Tumblr statements yesterday based on false information. We never said that Taylor couldn’t perform on the AMAs or block her Netflix special. In fact, we have no right to prevent her from performing live anywhere. ‘
