'You Need To Calm Down', the release of which coincided with Trump's birthday, includes lyrics such as "You are somebody that we don't know / But you're comin' at my friends like a missile / Why are you mad when you could be GLAAD?

It is part of her upcoming studio album, Lover, which is schedule to be released worldwide on 23 August, 2019.
