Taylor Swift To Re-Record Biggest Hits Following Scooter Braun Drama

Published: Wednesday 21st Aug 2019 by Sam

Taylor Swift made headlines last month when it emerged that her entire back catalogue had been purchased by Scooter Braun as part of the selling of her former label.

At the time, the Pop force said she was “sad” and “grossed out” by the move, especially as she was allegedly shut out from bidding herself.

The drama has left many wondering what Swift’s next course of action will be, given that it doesn’t look as though there’ll be any change in ownership – despite the public weigh-in.

Well, during promotion for new album ‘Lover’ (due August 23rd), the singer confirmed her plans. And it looks like she’ll be taking heed to calls to re-record her material.

Details below…

Speaking in a soon-to-be-aired interview on CBS Sunday Morning says she discovered  the deal “when it was online” and that nobody in her inner circle knew of the Braun purchase.

So what’s her push-back plan?

At one point during the taping, host  Tracy Smith asked Swift whether she’ll be re-recording the past songs as a way to regain control of her master recordings.

“Might you do that?” Smith asked.

“Oh yeah,” Swift replied.

“That’s a plan?” Smith re-iterates.

“Yeah, absolutely,” Swift says affirmatively.

The move will see Swift follow in the footsteps of JoJo, who re-recorded her first and second albums in their entirety – after a dispute with her former label kept both projects off streaming services. In taking such action, Jo not only provided her fans access to the albums, she’s now in a position to license her versions for lucrative sync deals. TLC also took similar action with their greatest hits.

Suffice to say, then , it’s a wise move for Swift whose catalogue boasts many a smash.

Your thoughts?

      You have to work and use the computer and internet, and if you can do that and dedicate some time each day then you can do this with no problem.

      • Jasmine August 22, 2019

        If u don’t like comments about Jasmine then don’t come on TGJ! Get lost! I am Queen B Jasmine ? and I have been running things since 2009. I can’t help it these trolls want to be me. I have stated numerous people times these men can’t TRANSform into me get they keep using my username. The name ‘Jasmine’ exclusively belongs to me on ALL gossip sites. This is the only site where gay male trolls continue to use my username which causes ongoing arguments. When they stop using my username then there will be peace.

  2. Clarkson August 21, 2019

    It wont sound the same like the original, I’m sorry

    This is a stupid move. They offered for her to buy her masters and she refused, what did she think? That someone else wouldn’t buy it?

    • Meme August 21, 2019

      They did not offer her to buy them back. They offered to her one album for every 1 new album she records. So basically dangling a carrot over her head and another way to keep her captive to a contract she wanted out.

    • The Truth August 21, 2019

      I’m convinced you’re just trying to write anything for attention. You cannot be this ridiculous in real life. You sound foolish beyond belief.

      Read a book.

      • The Truth August 21, 2019

        My above comment was for CLARKSON, not anyone else to clarify.

    • Jasmine August 21, 2019

      It is the only move. You are incorrect. She was blocked rom buying her masters! She is loaded and hungry for them old masters but because she refused to sign a new record deal this was how her label paid her back for making them lose future millions off her

  3. Meme August 21, 2019

    This would be a petty ass boss move. My first reaction was girl please, let it go. But you know what, I don’t blame. Can you imagine writing and recording some of the biggest hits of the last 10yrs and don’t own them?

    • Fancy BISH August 21, 2019

      True, but re-recorded songs never sound the same tho lol…the hunger is usually gone chile! Recording, engineering and mixing is no joke! The setup, the mics she used, the temperature in the room, the time of day, the pitch of the autotune (lol), the background vocalists, the instrumentalists, does she need tea, honey and water lol…CHILE. ?

      • Clarkson August 21, 2019

        Her voice has probably change also cause she was younger when she recorded these songs.

      • Lmfao_Hoe August 21, 2019

        @ Fancy you funny and said no lies ?????

      • Meme August 21, 2019

        I’m screaming loloool. It def wouldn’t sound the same.

  4. The Truth August 21, 2019

    Smart move. I still want a return of 1989 and RED Taylor Swift. Sigh. 1989 was pop PERFECTION!

    This new music ain’t it, sis.

    • Fancy BISH August 21, 2019

      This! ✅ Chile, this new music is pure dookie ? compared to 1989 and RED…not a single song has kept me interested past the week it came out lol…I’m definitely not buying the album, but hopefully there’s SOMETHING on there to stream from time to time! I don’t even like the cover art lol ?

    • Lanafan1 August 21, 2019

      Agreed 100%

  5. J August 21, 2019

    TLC started the trend, per usual lol

    • Zion August 22, 2019

      Maybe so, but TLC’s re-recordings sound like pure trash compared to the originals ???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

      • Fancy BISH August 22, 2019

        lol ?

  6. 2bad2bme August 21, 2019

    Girl, you just greedy. Want more money when you already rich asf

    • Lanafan1 August 21, 2019

      How is it greedy? It’s her f****** property.

      • Jasmine August 21, 2019

        She is greedy! Don’t pretend like she does not get hefty royalties already off these songs for writing and singing them. Hence, she still owns the songs technically regardless of who owns the masters.

  7. IG : mixedboy August 21, 2019

    No mayo!

    • Woah Vicky August 21, 2019

      No marmite

  8. ERICso August 21, 2019

    In terms of money and control, maybe it’s a good thing for the artist, but JoJo’s re-recordings are a clear example of how time can change a song’s original sound. JoJo’s new recordings are NOT good. I have the original albums and they’re so much better, especially when you consider JoJo’s age at the time. The originals are more valuable the more rare they become.

  9. Nene Leakes August 21, 2019

    For this very reason is why I don’t stream. As a consumer I don’t like record companies or whoever getting in their feelings blocking and pulling music from services, screwing over the fans because they want more money.

    If one of the hijackers had just showed up in the ER with cutaneous anthrax, which would not be “skin irritation “ or a single lesion and not been diagnosed and aggressively treated he would probably have died… Read more <===
