Taylor Swift’s Albums Are Now Streaming On Jay Z’s TIDAL Music Service
Ouch — this is a lowkey shady jab at Spotify! Last November, Taylor Swift shook up industry rules when she removed all of her music from the streaming service. “I’m not willing to contribute my life’s work to an experiment that I don’t feel fairly compensates the writers, producers, artists and creators of this music,” the hitmaker explained. And I just don’t agree with perpetuating the perception that music has no value and should be free.”
Well it seems that Swift has had a change of heart, but don’t expect to hear her chart-breaking records on Spotify! The singer is placing her music on BFF Jay Z’s TIDAL streaming service. Her entire catalogue, save for 1989, will be on the website. According to Entertainment Weekly, it is available for a seven-day trial but requires a pricey monthly subscription ($19.99 to be exact) to enjoy the tunes at your discretion. Look out for TIDAL when it relaunches on Monday, March 30. If you don’t want to pay for it, you can choose to listen to Swift on Rdio and Beats.
Taylor Swift’s massive platinum-selling record 1989 includes chart favorites like “Style,” “Shake It Off” and “Blank Space,”Look out for the singer when she begins The 1989 World Tour, kicking off on May 5 in Tokyo.
