Taylor Swift is not releasing a “surprise R&B album,” despite a new report. Gossip Cop has exclusively learned the story is completely untrue.

On Friday, MediaTakeOut is exclaiming, “Taylor Swift GOES BLACK… She Plans To Release… A ‘SURPRISE’ R&B ALBUM!! (You Won’t Believe… Which RAPPERS Are On Features.)” To underscore its outrageous claim about the superstar going “black,” the webloid features a photoshopped picture of Swift with her skin seemingly darkened and her hair styled as an afro.

According to this purported “world exclusive,” Swift’s new record is “being characterized internally as an ‘R&B-type’ album. Think a female version of the Jonas dude.” Presumably, the site is referring to Nick Jonas, who has released two albums in the R&B vein. MediaFakeOut goes on to allege about Swift, “And get this… we hear she even has a song with The MIGOS!!”

Upon reading that, Gossip Cop immediately wondered if the outlet somehow confused Swift with fellow pop star Katy Perry, whose new album dropped on Friday and features a collaboration with Migos. But that record wouldn’t be categorized as R&B. And now we’ve confirmed Swift’s new collection won’t be R&B, either.

When we investigated this suspicious “world exclusive,” one contact wondered if the incredibly wrong claims came from one of those satirical hoax sites that try to dupe readers with fake news stories. This is fake news all right, but MTO apparently believes it. The problem, of course, is that it’s 100 percent untrue.

It’s also laughable that MediaFakeOut wants people to think it somehow managed to get a real scoop about Swift’s top-secret new album before music publications like Billboard. The webloid has no history of accurately reporting on the singer. In fact, Gossip Cop busted the site nearly a year ago for a source-less report that falsely claimed Swift got butt implants. Once again, though, MediaTakeOut has proven to be the butt of a joke.
