Swift has opened up about her approach to making music to The Hollywood Reporter, where she’s being celebrated as among “Music’s Ruling Class.”

“I still do a lot of prep work before I walk through the studio door,” Swift revealed while discussing her latest full-length, Reputation. “I think that’s the Nashville songwriting school of thought, which will always be deeply ingrained in me. With a songwriting baseline firmly in place, that’s when we feel the freedom to go in and take risks with production. And we took quite a few with this one.”

Swift’s latest, Reputation, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard album chart.
