Travis Kelce Reveals His Favorite Tracks from Taylor Swift’s Latest Album

Travis Kelce has reportedly listened to all the tracks on girlfriend Taylor Swift’s new album, “The Tortured Poets Department” ahead of its official release Friday – and has already picked out his favorites.

A source told the Daily Mail Thursday that the Kansas City Chiefs tight end, 34, likes “Down Bad” and “loml” best, but that he also “loves everything he has heard.”

Last month, a source told Us Weekly that Swift, also 34, had written two love songs about Kelce but it’s unclear whether they’re the ones he has reportedly favored.

The insider claimed of the tracks at the time, “They have to do with their love story and falling in love with him,” adding, “They’re very special.”

“Just like most people journal, Taylor writes lyrics,” the source also said. “Her relationship with Travis has inspired her.”

In February, Kelce revealed he had listened to “some” of the 17 songs on the tracklist after Swift shocked fans by announcing the release of her eleventh studio album at the 2024 Grammy Awards that same month.

“I have heard some of it, yes. And it is unbelievable,” the Super Bowl champion said during a press conference at the time. “I can’t wait for her to shake up the world when it finally drops.”

“The Tortured Poets Department,” however, is believed to be a nod to Swift’s most recent longterm-ex, Joe Alwyn, as the British actor’s personal group chat with his pals reportedly had a similar name.

“JOES GROUPCHAT [sic] W PAUL WAS CALLED THE TORTURED MENS CLUB,” a Swiftie pointed out via X in February.

Another added at the time, “Apparently, joe and paul mescal’s whatsapp gc was called ‘the tortured mens club.’”

The theory would not be far-fetched given that Swift has a history of being inspired by her breakups.

The Daily Mail’s source claimed that Kelce is aware of what the songs are “all about” since the couple has talked about the album on “multiple occasions.”

“If it is about Joe, or anyone, even if it is about him in the future, this is the artist she is and he is in love with her and doesn’t pay any attention to be jealous,” the insider clarified.

“He understands this is a major part of what makes her the person and artist she is and he is no way looking to thwart the direction she takes.”

The source added that the NFL star is “100 percent” supportive of the Grammy winner and “loves everything she’s doing,” concluding that neither Alywn, 33, or any other ex are any of his concern.

“He can’t wait to buy her album and support her that way,” the insider concluded. “He is very excited for her and for people to hear it and be there for the next phase of her career.”

Page Six has reached out to Kelce’s rep for comment but did not immediately hear back.

Fans believe that he has already been showcasing his support for Swift’s new music for some time, though, via his clothing.

When the pro athlete attended brother Jason Kelce’s retirement announcement, he wore a gray, beige, black and white collared shirt, which makes up the “ttpd color palette,” as one fan pointed out.

Aside from the two songs that are rumored to be Travis’ favorites, “The Tortured Poets Department” will also feature a collaboration with Post Malone, titled “Fortnight,” and another with Florence + the Machine called “Florida!!!”

Other tracks featured are “My Boy Only Breaks His Favorite Toys,” “So Long, London,” “But Daddy I Love Him,” “Fresh Out The Slammer,” “Guilty As Sin?,” “Who’s Afraid Of Little Old Me” and “I Can Fix Him (No I Really Can).”

The album then rounds out with “I Can Do It With A Broken Heart,” “The Smallest Man Who Ever Lived,” “The Alchemy,” “Clara Bow” and “The Manuscript.”
