(See what I did there?)
Taylor Swift has decided to release her entire discography on streaming platforms tonight as a thank you for 1989 selling more than 10 million copies worldwide.
This comes about 3 years after Taylor pulled her albums from Spotify, and while Taylor is always the topic of much debate in pop culture universe, I, for one, am very excited. (Catch me jamming to ‘The Story of Us’ at approximately 12:01 a.m. tonight.)
However, the timing of Taylor’s decision has sparked a lot of controversy. She’s decided to put all of her albums back on streaming services on the same night Katy Perry’s new album, Witness, will drop.
And, after seemingly never-ending reports about feuds between the two, and what with Katy Perry commenting on the feud multiple times during press for her upcoming album, Taylor’s timing does seem pretty convenient.
With the buzz and excitement of Taylor making her albums available for streaming again, the possibility of her albums going to #1 on the charts (and essentially blocking Katy from a #1) is a definite possibility.
Nevertheless, despite whatever the true intentions are behind this decision, I am counting down the minutes. Say what you want about Taylor, the girl knows how to write a relatable song.
(And I’ll still make sure to give Katy’s new album a listen too.)
What do you think? Were there ulterior motives behind this decision? Or not?
Are you tired of hearing about the Taylor/Katy feud all together? Same, kind of. (Love them both, though.)
