Multi-awarded singer-songwriter Taylor Swift throws Google’s search engine into a frenzy as she releases 33 Million puzzles for her die-hard fans to solve on September 20, 2023.

“Swifties,” fans of the singer-songwriter, collectively flooded the engine,  decoding the words and quotes synonymous with the star. Some of these puzzles include “Switmas,” “Thirteen,” “Pen Click,”  and 32 million more in merely hours. 

All of these are in relation to the star's upcoming re-releasing of her album "1989 (Taylor's Version)." She stated it is for the fans to unlock "The Vault," which is a collection of song titles that she had written during the 1989 era but did not make the cut to the final album. There are five additional tracks namely, “Slut!" “Say Don’t Go,” “Now That We Don’t Talk,” “Suburban Legends,” and “Is It Over Now?”

With her re-release on October 27, fans have a chance to reminisce about the sparkle of the pop sensation album that included hit tracks, such as "Shake It Off," "Blank Space," "Style," "Wildest Dreams,” and “Bad Blood.” The original version of the album was co-written and produced with Max Martin. 

In addition to its commercial success, 1989 won “Album of the Year” and “Best Pop Vocal Album” at the 2016 Grammy Awards. 1989 (Taylor's Version) is set to become the fourth release of Swift's re-recorded albums. This is all in relation to the movement she has done when she was denied the opportunity to buy back her masters after being sold in 2020. 

With Swift's impact, popularity, and relevance growing by the day as her fans anticipate that the album will be a bigger hit than all her previous releases. She is also still performing around the world as part of her sold-out ”Eras Tour," which is hinted to make Swift a billionaire by the end of the tour.
