The 500, mainly teenagers, were filmed as they were bussed into the multi-millionairess's homes in London, Los Angeles, Nashville and Rhode Island.

And naturally it went down well.

"This is, like, the best day of my entire life!' one fan said.

The sessions were recorded in the past 12 months - a time in which the star has appeared to retreat from the spotlight.

But from the videos, it looks like this hasn't diminished her followers' adoration.

"Every song you're just like, 'This is my favourite,' and then another one comes on and you're like, 'No, this is my favourite.'"

Reputation is Swift's sixth album and is released by Big Machine Records. The company says the record is a triumph being American retailer Target's largest album pre-sale of all time.
