It was a big night for Taylor Swift at the 2018 American Music Awards! The now 23-time AMA winner officially broke records for being the most decorated AMAs female artist— but for her fans, that wasn’t even the most exciting part of the night.
During her acceptance speech for winning Favorite Pop/Rock Album for “Reputation,” Taylor thanked her fans for supporting her over the years— and casually threw in a tease about new music on the way.
“I always look at albums as chapters in my life,” she said. “To the fans, I’m so happy that this means you liked this one. I have to be really honest about something…I’m even more excited about the next chapter.”
BUT DID TAYLOR SWIFT JUST HINT A NEW ALBUM IS COMING. #TaylorSwiftAMAs
