Season 3 of Killing Eve is currently in full swing, with just one more episode left before the season wraps up. The penultimate episode "Beautiful Monster" just aired on AMC and BBC America, which featured a full title sequence. The titles also included a new song, a moody and dark cover of Taylor Swift's hit "Look What You Made Me Do" that sounds almost nothing like the original. But Swift's fans believe that Taylor herself produced the new cover, especially after she promoted it on social media.
The new cover of "Look What You Made Me Do" was released by the mysterious band Jack Leopards & The Dolphin Club, which seemingly didn't exist prior to the Taylor Swift cover landing on Killing Eve. Fans believe that Taylor is actually responsible for the cover, and releasing it under a pseudonym in order to avoid her ongoing legal conflict with producer Scooter Braun. Swift shared the cover on social media, check it out below:
Even the most hardcore of Swifties might not have realized that Killing Eve's title sequence included a cover of "Look What You Made Me Do", especially considering the changes to the melody and male vocals. But the question remaining is: who exactly is Jack Leopards & The Dolphin Club?
Taylor Swift's above tweet quickly went viral, and the fans quickly began digging into any information regarding Jack Leopards & The Dolphin Club. At the time of writing, the "Look What You Made Me Do" cover that appeared on Killing Eve is the only track that's been released by the mysterious group. What's more the name Nils Sjöberg is seemingly credited as a producer on the track's YouTube video. Nils Sjöberg is a pseudonym Taylor Swift has previously used Calvin Harris' song "This Is What You Came For." So did Swift produce the new cover herself? That's exactly what the fandom believes.
Plenty of Swifties have taken to social media as a result, cheering on Taylor Swift for what seems to be a sly way to produce her own cover without having to pay producer Scooter Braun, who Swift has had a very public feud with. Check out one fan response below.
Taylor Swift has been vocal about her history with Scooter Braun, as well as her history of being silenced previously. Fans got a deeper look into her life with the Netflix documentary Miss Americana, which was very much focused on the young singer/songwriter using her voice for causes she believes in.
Taylor Swift's has been open about her issues with Scooter Braun in the past, as well as her quest to get the full rights to her first six albums. Unfortunately this has been a struggle, with the songwriter not actually having legal and financial dominion over her countless hit songs. This includes "Look What You Made Me Do", with the fandom believing Swift is using a pseudonym in order to release the cover that ultimately appeared on Killing Eve Season 3.
This fan theory hasn't been confirmed or denied just yet, but already it's served as fodder for countless memes. Check one humorous response below,
It would make sense that Taylor Swift would want to write a song for Killing Eve, given the 30 year-old singer's personal taste in television. She's a huge fan of Grey's Anatomy, which is what Killing Eve star Sandra Oh is perhaps best known for. She's also revealed that she's a fan of Killing Eve, so it seems like a match made in heaven.
If Taylor Swift did produce "Look What You Made Me Do", there's still another question: who is the voice of Jack Leopards & The Dolphin Club? Fans actually believe the man singing is Taylor's brother Austin Swift. We'll just have to wait and see as the situation progresses. I'm also eager to see if Killing Eve uses the song for its title sequence moving forward.
