This week, Taylor Swift shook the music world up a little and released a brand new track titled 'Look What You Made Me Do,'

Fans has been going a little crazy over it.

Most people are of the consensus that it's a fairly decent tune... But some people think it sounds very familiar indeed.

Yep, it almost sounds as if Right Said Fred's 'I'm Too Sexy' (circa 1992) makes a cameo on the superstar's new song.

You can hear it in full below:

In case you have no idea who Right Said Fred are, allow us to give you a brief crash course.

The group, which are still releasing records, shot to fame in the early 90s with 'I'm Too Sexy,' a tongue-in-cheek tribute to the fashion industry.

Although it was a bit cheesy the song proved a huge hit, reaching number two in the UK charts.

If want to hear it, here it is.

It was the only real hit that the group had but Taylor recognises a classic when she hears one, and inserted the tune from that song into her own.

However, this isn't a case of an artist covering or sampling another and not acknowledging them.

According to the Washington Post, Swift's song credits Right Said Fred with a co-writing credit, which is great for them.

Right Said Fred responded to the news on Twitter and were clearly impressed.

If you want to learn if Taylor has been influenced by any other British pop songs from the 90s, do so by listening to her new album Reputation, which is released in November.
