The group of fans was among the first to preview her highly anticipated sixth studio album, and a few even got to hold Swift’s album of the year Grammy Award, which she won in 2016 for 1989.
Besides getting a coveted first listen to Swift’s new album, those who were handpicked for the fans-only secret sessions were able to meet the pop star and leave with gifts, including a Reputation snake keychain with the city’s name on it (in this case, Watch Hill) as well as a hat and black bag that both had “Rep” emblazoned on it.
Based on social media reactions following the Rhode Island secret session, Swift’s fans who were invited to the event were truly overcome with emotions. “Incredible,” “amazing,” “epic,” and “best night ever” were some of the words attendees used to describe the event.
Last week, the 10-time Grammy winner surprised 100 personally selected fans to a Reputation secret session in the U.K.
The secret session, which first began in 2014, has now become a tradition for the star who hosts fans in her various homes for a sneak peek of all her soon-to-be-released songs.
Reputation is set to be released on Nov. 10. Swift will drop another track from the album, “Gorgeous,” at midnight Friday.
