Taylor Swift Returns To Spotify, Amends Her Relationship To Streaming

Share

In a pop star gut punch heard 'round the world, Taylor Swift did her best to overshadow Katy Perry's release of Witness tonight.

This is the last thing Perry needs as she launches her new album to an inarguably lukewarm reception.

She's clearly now come to terms with the new music landscape and has reconciled her differences with Spotify. Spotify said in a statement: "We can confirm that Taylor Swift's entire back catalogue is now available on Spotify for her millions of fans to enjoy".

Swift got into a very public spat with Spotify in 2014 after she removed her entire catalog from the streaming service, including 1989. Another said: "I aspire to be as petty as taylor swift releasing her discography for streaming the weekend katy perry's album drops", and one other weighed in: "This is way more than just a beef. this is sabotage".

But today, however, she has announced a U-turn - making all of her music available to stream legally for the first time.

In an announcement both on Twitter and Instagram, Swift's official fan account, "Taylor Nation", brought the good news to Swifties.

Although the singer admits that publicly feuding with Swift, 27, impacts her image with fans, Perry added, "I mean, I'm not Buddha". In 2015, she criticized Apple Music for not paying artists for songs streamed during a customer's three-month trial.

In a recent interview, the 32-year-old songstress cursed Swift's popular single "Bad blood", which was reportedly about the duo's prolonged dispute.

Remember when Katy Perry told James Corden on "Carpool Karaoke" that she wanted Taylor Swift to end their feud?

Swift's hits include "Shake It Off", "We Are Never Getting Back Together" and "You Belong With Me". "Especially when someone tries to assassinate my character with little girls", she sniped.
