Taylor Swift Makes Triumphant Return To Streaming Services

It's been three years since Taylor Swift removed her music from streaming services and we all found ourselves with a bleeding hole in our playlists. But guess what, those days are over and it's all sunshine ahead for Swifties. T-Swift has officially put her music back on Spotify, Amazon, TIDAL, and Google Play.
It's a significant move in the world of Spotify, as Swift left the streaming service just after her most recent album, 1989, was released. She later said, "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 move came Friday, which also happened to be the same day Katy Perry's new album, Witness, dropped. Was it coincidence? You're gonna have to ask Tay Tay. The two superstars have been feuding for years, but Perry recently said she wanted the feud to come to an end, telling James Corden, "There's a situation, and honestly, like she started it, and it's time for her to finish it. Ready for that BS to be done."
Whether or not Swift intentionally through another blow at Perry, she may have very well landed the final punch in the debate over who the more popular superstar is. Currently, Swift is out-streaming Perry on Spotify, despite Perry's brand new album. Perry's Swift-bashing "Swish Swish" leads all songs in streams, but Swift's catalog is doing much better overall. As of Sunday morning, Swift has seven songs in the top 200. Perry only has two, the other being "Chained to the Rhythm".
