Taylor Swift is Set to TAKE DOWN Apple Music and Spotify!
Taylor Swift world domination? Yes, yes indeed. The singer is launching her very own streaming service to rival Apple Music and Spotify. Cause like I said, Taylor is focused on world domination at this point! I kid! But really, the pop star IS making plans for this streaming service. According to TMZ, the site will be called Swifties and will be offering quote “Non downloadable multi media content in the nature of audio recordings.” In addition the site will offer a line of Taylor Swift music products including guitars, picks, straps, drumsticks, and even online music courses. Now this news comes on the heels of Taylor’s now infamous feud with Apple Music and Spotify. Remember that? Back in 2015, Spotify began offering her music to their costumers for free, without giving her any royalties - and they did this to all their artists. Taylor fired back by removing her entire catalog from the site. Apple music made a similar move. They offered music for free to their customers during a free 3 month trial period. Taylor again removed her music from the streaming site. She even penned an open letter to the tech company. I find it to be shocking, disappointing, and completely unlike this historically progressive and generous company she wrote. These are the echoed sentiments of every artist, writer and producer in my social circles who are afraid to speak up publicly because we admire and respect apple so much. Now Apple actually went on to listen to Taylor and fix their site, and Taylor went on to star in many apple music commercials. So what’s gonna happen when she launches her own streaming site? Well, we bet she won’t be promoting apple anymore. But also remember, that Jay Z tried something similar when he launched his streaming service Tidal. The initial debut was met with scathing reviews. Now the site boasts 3 million subscribers, but it’s a fraction of apple and spotify. They have 11 million and 30 million paid subscribers respectively So you tell me, are you excited about Taylor’s new streaming venture or are you like me, and just want another album?
