There's nothing Taylor Swift can't do. Only Taylor Swift can release an 8-second clip of white noise and hit #1 on iTunes.
Wait, that's exactly what happened.
Due to some glitch in the Canadian iTunes system, a 1989 track called "Track 3" was released. Fans flipped out at the chance to hear brand new T. Swift music and paid $1.29 for the song.
Unfortunately, they ended up paying for 8 seconds of static. So many Swifties jumped at the chance to purchase a new 1989 track that "Track 3" aka white noise shot to #1.
Fans freaked out...

They were still able to crack a joke or two.
We heard that Taylor Swift's "Track 3" is a song about every guy's first time. It's 8 seconds long, totally silent & released accidentally.

If you were doubting the power of the Swift… well, you've been officially silenced.
