DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that Taylor Swift once had no music available to stream on Spotify for three years? For those who don't know, Swift has also refused to release her fourth studio album, Red, online at first back in 2013. The album was only made available to some sites online a few months after its release date. And again, in 2014, the American singer-songwriter completely pulled out her entire music from Spotify and the likes. It was because of the issue about the amount of royalty that artists receive from every play of their songs.

Taylor Swift told in her op-ed on July 7, 2014, in The Wall Street Journal, " Valuable things should be paid for. It's my opinion that music should not be free." But the air seems to have changed in 2017 when she put back all her full music catalog available for digital streaming. In her Twitter account, she said that the decision was to "thank her fans" after her album 1989 passed the 10-million album sales mark. Swifties, the name of the artist's fanbase, then had a good reason to download music from Spotify. That same year, she released her sixth studio album, Reputation. Swift has since then continued to make all her new music available for online streaming. If you want to listen to Taylor Swift's music along with you everywhere, then you should know the ways to download music from Spotify.
