Stop what you are doing and head on over to Apple Music, Spotify, Tidal or whatever streaming service you use because Taylor Swift’s full music catalog is now available to stream on all of them!
Thursday (June 8), Taylor Swift announced all five of her albums, including her multi-platinum, chart-topping 1989, are now available on all streaming services. The announcement came via her official Taylor Nation Instagram account.
“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,” the post read.
In 2014, Swift removed her music from Spotify and made it available exclusively through Apple Music. Her decision came as Apple decided to pay artists royalties during it three-month trial period.
While her fan account cited Swift’s streaming return was in celebration of 1989 selling over 10 million copies and the RIAA’s 100 Million Song Certification announcement, it seems a bit coincidental that it also came on the eve of her rival Katy Perry’s fifth album’s (Witness) release (Friday, June 9).
Earlier this week Perry re-launched her feud with Swift. “I wish that I could turn the other cheek every single time,” Perry told British music magazine NME. “But I’m also not a pushover, you know? Especially when someone tries to assassinate my character with little girls [their fans]. That’s so messed up!”
These comments by Perry came on the heels of her addressing the feud with late night talk show host James Corden.
“What I want to say is that I’m ready for that B.S. to be done. Now there is a law of cause and effect. You do something and there’s going to be a reaction,” Perry said on her edition of Carpool Karaoke. “Trust me daddy, there’s going to be a reaction. It’s all about karma.”
Perry’s recent single “Swish Swish” is the karma many believe she was referring to. The song also seems to be a response to Swift’s 2015 hit single “Bad Blood,” which is believed to be about the ongoing feud between the two pop stars.
