Taylor Swift returns to Spotify as Katy Perry releases new album

Her official Instagram fan account, Taylor Nation, posted the news Thursday.

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.

Well it seems as if Taylor Swift has changed her mind as her music will be back to Spotify and other streaming services later this month.

Swift wrote an opinion piece for The Wall Street Journal where she defended her decision, saying that streaming services, like Spotify, don't do a good enough job paying artists.


But the timing can also have the opposite effect: People may join Spotify to listen to Swift's music, and then discover Perry's new album.

Taylor Swift famously removed her songs from Spotify and other streaming services a few years ago to protest how little money artists earn when their music is on there. Many Twitter users noted that the return of Swift's music coincides with the release of Katy Perry's Witness album. But ever since Katy outright confirmed that there was, indeed, some tension between the two on Carpool Karaoke with James Corden last month, well, our teacups hath runneth over. Swift, who initially refused to release her 2012 album Red on Spotify, has previously said that "valuable things should be paid for". Between Katy accusing Taylor of assassinating her character and Taylor's silent clapback, this feud just got very, very interesting. "She started it and it's time for her to finish it", Perry admitted.

A couple of years ago, the Grammy victor shook the music industry when she penned an open letter to Apple Music as she slammed their decision to not offer artist compensations during the free trial of the service.

"I'm not Buddha - things irritate me".
