Travis Kelce has sent social media into meltdown after admitting he’s listened to Taylor Swift’s upcoming album.
Speaking to the press during the Super Bowl 58 opening night, the Kansas City Chiefs star confessed he’d “heard some of” The Tortured Poets Department, which his pop star girlfriend announced at the Grammy awards on Sunday.
“I have heard some of it, yes,” he told a curious reporter. “It is unbelievable, I can’t wait for her to shake up the world when it finally drops.”

Swift revealed her upcoming 11th studio album while collecting the Grammy for Best Pop Vocal Album.
“I know that the way the Recording Academy voted is a direct reflection of the passion from the fans,” Swift told the audience at the Crypto.com Area in Los Angeles. “So I want to say thank you to the fans by telling you a secret that I have been keeping from you for the last two years, which is that my brand new album comes out April 19.
“It’s called The Tortured Poets Department, I’m going to go and post the cover right now backstage. Thank you, I love you.”
Swift also landed the Album of the Year accolade. This is the fourth time the 34-year-old has won the award, more than any other artist, bringing her total number of Grammy wins to 14.
