Earlier this month Taylor Swift made her return to all streaming platforms and now the move has seemed to pay off – at least financially.
Back on June 8, Taylor Swift celebrated her 1989 album selling over 10 million copies by announcing her entire music catalog would return to all streaming services after previously only being available through the subscription-based Apple Music. According to Billboard, the 27-year-old artist’s move has paid off, earning her an almost estimated $400,000 ($397,000 to be exact).
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.
Swift’s return to all streaming services, including Amazon, Spotify, Tidal and more, came with much fanfare. Some took the return at face value, while other’s believed it served as the latest chapter in Swift’s ongoing feud with fellow pop star Katy Perry. Swift’s announcement regarding her music’s streaming return came on the eve of Katy Perry’s Witness album’s release date.
