Why Taylor Swift fans think this song from the ‘TTPD’ leak is about Travis Kelce

Taylor Swift’s forthcoming album, “The Tortured Poet’s Department,” was allegedly leaked ahead of its scheduled drop on Friday — and fans who caught wind of it are convinced that, if real, one of the songs could be about Travis Kelce.

Those who listened to an alleged track titled “The Alchemy” claim its lyrics include references to touchdowns, teams, warming benches, winning streaks, trophies, cheers and even being the greatest in the league.

Some fans weighed in on the alleged lyrics via social media, with many arguing that they’re clearly about the Kansas City Chiefs tight end, who helped his NFL team to victory at the 2024 Super Bowl in February.

“Omg is the alchemy about Travis,” one person tweeted via X, with others writing things like “Oh the alchemy is so about Travis” and “The references to American football … welcome to your first song, travis.”

A fourth observed, “Wait maybe the alchemy is about travis the fact that she says ‘touch down’ in the song is.. something. and ‘where’s the trophy’ he’s [sic] just comes running over to me.”

The alleged song also includes a lyric about “beer sticking to the floor,” which could be another apparent nod to the NFL star.

The “Anti-Hero” singer notably guzzled a beer while attending Kelce’s championship game against the San Francisco 49ers at Allegiant Stadium.

Her beau is also notorious for drinking brewskies. Earlier this month, he chugged a beer with his brother, Jason Kelce, for a “New Heights” graduation ceremony at the University of Cincinnati.

In another verse from the alleged song leak, Swift sang about shirts being “off,” which could be a reference to when Jason famously removed his shirt while watching Travis’ game against the Buffalo Bills with Swift in January.

The Grammy-winning artist seemed to suggest that their relationship is a once-in-a-lifetime kind of love and that she is finally feeling like herself again.
