Taylor Swift Returns to Music Streaming Sites

Apple ultimately changed its policies, and Swift allowed her music to be streamed from the service. "Please don't ask us to provide you with our music for no compensation", she wrote in an open letter in 2015.

Swift's 2014 single "Bad Blood" has been seen as directed at Perry, and the "Firework" singer admitted recently that the two were not friends.

It may not be pure coincidence that today is also the day that Perry - with whom she has been in the midst of a public spat for many years - has released her long-awaited fourth album, Witness.

Yes, this move certainly could be in celebration of Taylor's 100 Million Song Certification, but the timing of her move was pretty peculiar, considering it was just hours after Katy made headlines for her latest comments about "Bad Blood".

Taylor Swift has returned her back catalogue to streaming services to "thank" her fans.

In an announcement both on Twitter and Instagram, Swift's official fan account, "Taylor Nation", brought the good news to Swifties.

"I mean, I'm not Buddha-things irritate me", she said.

Besides Apple Music, no streaming service was able to feature 1989.

Taylor Swift chose to make her entire music catalog available on every streaming service at midnight, which was the exact same time Katy Perry released her new album Witness.

Swift adding her music to Spotify is also noteworthy because she and the music platform had a public dispute about how much they were paying her for streaming her music.

Perry told late night TV host James Corden about the situation during the "Carpool Karaoke" segment.

"You're calculated. I got your number, 'cause you're a joker, and I'm a courtside killer queen", the lyrics go.

"I do the right thing any time that it feels like a fumble", Perry said last month.
