Spotify, Taylor Swift Breaks Up, Swift Pulls Her Entire Calalogue Form Spotify.

Spotify, Taylor Swift Breaks Up, Swift Pulls Her Entire Calalog Form Spotify.

Worlds favorite singer, Taylor Swift and Spotify, worlds largest streaming service seem to have no love between them, even though, Spotify is sending her love filled pleas. I expected something like this when Music companies complained about lost sales due to streaming services. Even Apple's iTunes lost to the tune of 13% in downloads / sales. RIAA reported increase, a huge jump in streaming subscriptions.

Well all before this Taylor Swift went on WSJ talking about her music being a love affair and more;
"Music is art, and art is important and rare. Important, rare things are valuable. Valuable things should be paid for. It's my opinion that music should not be free, and my prediction is that individual artists and their labels will someday decide what an album's price point is. I hope they don't underestimate themselves or undervalue their art."
Hope it will not be a sad one. Publications like The Washington Post, did not like her piece on WSJ and criticized her, ironically referring to her as a streaming enthusiastic;
"Streaming enthusiasts such as Swift should remember: Twenty percent of music on Spotify has never been streamed — so much that there’s a kind of song rescue shelter, Forgotify, to memorialize it."
Anyway there are no other news about the incident other than the plea by Spotify and it's 40 million users. I doubt that all 40 million listen to her but it could be as her album 1989, looks to hit platinum.
Her songs are available through other streaming services, Rdio, Pandora and Deezer and even if it is not, I will not miss her as she is not my type. But there are a lots and lots of people who do and for their sake, I hope this will turn out to be a happy love song.
