From the Album
• She challenges societal sexist double standards, with lyrics including a noteworthy reference to American actor Leonardo DiCaprio. Swift uses the actor as an example to explain sexism, singing "And they would toast to me, oh, let the players play/I'd be just like Leo in Saint-Tropez".
• According to Billboard's Gil Kaufman, "The Man" is a pointed statement about "how much harder women need to work than men to get to the same finish line".
• Following the release of its parent album Lover, "The Man" debuted at number 23 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart of September 7, 2019.
