Swift slammed over Spotify release

MusicTaylor Swift’s Return to Streaming Reignites Feud with Katy Perry Written by Alexander Kacala

Taylor Swift's music has been restored to streaming services in celebration of her "1989" album selling more than 10 million copies worldwide.

But the timing of Swift's decision has sparked a backlash, with the singer accused of being "immature" and "petty".

But HaleyyyEvans said: 'Honestly Taylor Swift coming back to Spotify is the best thing that's happened to me all year'.

The "Taylor Nation" Instagram made the announcement by writing, "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".

Whether this was a move meant only to spite her bitter rival, or was instead a response to Spotify's plansto restrict its free tier, the result is the same: It's a blow to Apple Music. The other is that archival Katy Perry just released her latest album and she wanted to steal the thunder.

Judging by the headlines Friday morning, Taylor Swift's music has finally returned to streaming services.




For starters, when it comes any kind of feud; be it fictional, non-fictional or even non-existent (sort of like the one legendary "Queen of Soul" Aretha Franklin dredged up with Dionne Warwick a few months back who, as the kids say nowadays, "remained unbothered" about the situation) is based around one major, unspoken rule: No unfounded or unwarranted attacks, whatsoever - or "fight fairly", if you will.

Jazzdragon wrote: 'I have no loyalty with any artists on music but after what Taylor Swift just did, I'm listening to Katy Perry's new album'. (Drake's More Life was an Apple Music exclusive, too.) It's an open question as to whether Apple's public contrition was enough to sway Swift.

"I'm not Buddha - things irritate me", she told NME. Especially when someone tries to assassinate my character with little girls.

The announcement by Swift may ramp up rivalry with Perry, 32, who released her new album's first single, "Swish Swish", last month.

Swift and Perry have reportedly been at odds with each other since 2013, but the "Swish Swish" singer just recently confirmed it during an interview with James Corden's "Carpool Karaoke" segment on his late-night show.
