The SNL episode will mark one of Swift’s few televised Lover performances; her last one was at the MTV VMAs, when she performed “Lover” and “You Need To Calm Down.” Lover recently tallied the best sales week of the year on the Billboard charts, moving over 800k copies in its first week. Last week, nearly a hundred fan-made Taylor Swift bootlegs were uploaded to Spotify illegally. Read The FADER staff's review roundup of Lover here, and watch the Saturday Night Live promo above.
