LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Taylor Swift wrote a heartfelt thank you note to her fans after 'The Tortured Poets Department' skyrocketed to number one on the Billboard 200 a week after its release. Swift’s new album has established itself as a reflection of her life’s most significant moments.

Swift partnered with Amazon Music to provide fans with an insight into the meaning behind one of her 'TTPD' songs, ‘My Boy Breaks All His Favorite Toys’. Swift explains that the song is about being in a relationship where a person is discarded like a toy after spending too much time with them. Many fans tried to draw parallels between the track and her past relationship with actor Joe Alwyn.
