Oh, the power that Swifties hold! Taylor Swift has now released the titles of the unreleased songs in her 1989 (Taylor's Version) album, thanks to her global fandom solving the puzzle game she launched online in less than 24 hours.

The global pop icon and Google on Sept. 20 (Philippine time) launched an online game that prompted Swifties to search for Taylor's name on the search engine platform and make a little blue, beach-themed vault pop on the bottom right corner of the screen.

When clicked, the vault will unleash a 1989-themed word scramble which you would have to solve. Once done, you must proceed to typing your cracked code on the search bar and if it is correct, the vault will once again appear on your screen to allow you to get through all 89 puzzles in the game.

Once a total of 33 million puzzles have been unlocked worldwide, the vault will be unlocked, unveiling the titles of Taylor's upcoming songs. 

At around 7:50 p.m. that day, Google updated the game with a voice memo from the pop superstar, announcing that Swifties had finally "unlocked the 1989 (Taylor's Version) vault."

"And now, I'm excited to share the vault title tracks with you," she added.

Taylor proceeded with enumerating the songs while the words were being flashed on the screen. They are: It's Over Now, Now That We Don't Talk, Say Don't Go, and Suburban Legend.

The announcement of her unreleased tracks comes a month after Taylor revealed that she is dropping a re-recorded version of her 1989 album while performing during her "The Eras Tour" in Los Angeles in August.

Just like her other re-recordings, 1989 (Taylor's Version) features the tracks originally included in the same album released in October 2014. As a bonus, the pop superstar would also include unreleased songs in her re-recordings.

1989 (Taylor's Version) is slated to launch on Oct. 27 via Republic Records.
