“My diss track?” Oh!” he said in a video shared by ET. “I haven’t really listened to that much of it, but I’m sure it’s good.”

Healy’s aunt, Debbie Dedes, shared her thoughts on her nephew inspiring a song in Swift’s double album.

“She writes about all her relationships, doesn’t she? I don’t think it will come as a shock to him at all,” she told The Daily Mail of her nephew. “He’s very happy in his new relationship so I’m sure he will be focusing on that.”

In Swift’s “Guilty as Sin,” the songwriter mentions someone sending her 1989’s “The Downtown Lights” by The Blue Nile, a band Healy has been quoted as saying it was his “favorite band of all time.”

Swift’s The Tortured Poets Department has been breaking records on Spotify. The streamer recently reported that the double album became the first one to surpass one billion streams in a single week, happening in just five days.

The previous album to reach the most streams in a week also came from Swift, with her last release, Midnights, in October 2022.

A previous record Swift broke with her latest work was being the most-streamed album in a single day, exceeding 200 million streams. Swift now has the top three most-streamed albums in a single day, with previous records held by Midnights and 1989 (Taylor’s Version).
