Taylor Swift Makes ENTIRE Music Catalog Available For Streaming Again As Rival Katy Perry Drops New Album

Swift Discounts Biggest Albums To Counter Katy's Sales?
Published: Thursday 8th Jun 2017 by Rashad

Is it petty or pure coincidence that Taylor Swift – a longtime opponent of having her music hosted on streaming services such as Spotify and Pandora (click here to read more on that) – officially announced today that all of her chart-topping hits will finally be available again on all major streaming platforms as of Friday at 12am ET?  Not only that, but Swift will also discount her top-sellers on iTunes.

Conveniently, both actions are set to occur at the exact same time her longtime rival – Katy Perry – is set to drop her new album, ‘Witness,’ to minimal buzz.

Details inside:

Billboard reports:

The pop star’s representative confirmed her full catalog will return to all streaming platforms Friday. Her official Instagram fan account, Taylor Nation, posted the news Thursday (June 8).

Swift’s five albums, including 1989, also will be available on Tidal, Amazon and other streaming platforms, her rep said in a statement.

The post referred to by Billboard specifically reads:

In celebration of 1989 selling over 10 Million Albums Worldwide and the RIAA’s 100 Million Song Certification announcement, Taylor wants to thank her fans by making her entire back catalog available to all streaming services tonight at midnight,” the statement said.

*****

You may recall Swift removed her music from Spotify around the release of her 2014 blockbuster album, ‘1989,’ and only allowed Apple Music to stream it.  The decision was reportedly based on poor royalty payments from the streaming giants.

Well, it appears the ‘We Are Never Getting Back Together’ hitmaker is getting back with all her old streaming friends…just in time for the release of Katy Perry’s new album, ‘Witness,’ which features the moderate hits ‘Chained to the Rhythm,’ ‘Bon Appetit,’ and ‘Swish Swish.’  This, just as the ‘Roar’ singer has been making mention of Swift more now than ever.

    Lolol chile. I’m team Katy but I’m a little embarrassed for her this time round. Taylor is a snake and fake but you can’t deny her power. She may just chart higher with old music. Haha. Taylor camp know Katy is struggling, this is a pure shady move.

    This is the type of shady and petty I’m trying to be for the rest of my f****** life! Move in silence! I was going to stream “Witness” but I might stream all of Taylor’s just to contribute to the magnificent and excellent shade.

    Gurl Taylor is not playing with Katy Lord maybe she should’ve avoided the questions and kept quiet. Lol I didn’t think that b**** had the strings to make such moves like this.

  9. truthteller June 9, 2017

    They are both petty, young (well Katy relatively) women who need to focus on more important things. The fact that some of you are cackling over this catty behaviour is pretty sad
