Taylor Swift returns to Spotify the same day Katy releases album

Posted June 11, 2017

What this means is that if you're a Spotify user or if you use any other music streaming service, you should now be able to access the artist's entire catalog of music, assuming that's what you want.

Fans of the pop stars started going insane when they realized that Perry's album was also going live at exactly the same moment.

When she left Spotify in 2014, later favouring Tidal and Apple Music, Swift defender her decision by complaining that streaming services like Spotify didn't compensate artists fairly.

Katy and Taylor's long-running feud dates back to 2014, after Katy allegedly stole Taylor's backing dancers. Since Swift abandoned the service, Spotify's growth has surged, with more than 50 million paying subscribers as of March, and the company pays out billions of dollars to the music industry. "I thought, 'I will try this; I'll see how it feels.' It didn't feel right to me". In 2015, she called out Apple Music for failing to pay royalties on streaming during free trial periods for the service. One tweeted: "I aspire to be as petty as taylor swift releasing her discography for streaming the weekend katy perry's album drops".

While there's no way of truly knowing if Swift's return to streaming on the same day as Perry's album release is intentional or just coincidental, the Internet had plenty of feelings that they made known online.

This all comes as Katy Perry tells NME Taylor tried to "assassinate" her character. From there, the popcorn-eating masses got to enjoy lots of Twitter shade and Swift's "Bad Blood", which is about the whole beef.

"I'm not Buddha - things irritate me", she continued about the perceived slights.

The 32-year-old addressed long-time rumors of a feud between the two pop divas for the first time to James Corden May 22 during an episode of "Carpool Karaoke".
