One Instagram post. One Facebook post. Taylor Swift is officially back at Spotify! Mayhem ensued!
June 9, 2017 is officially the day when Swift’s entire catalogue, from Taylor Swift to 1989, is streamable on both the free, and premium tiers of Spotify. If you remember the chaos that ensued when she pulled out her entire catalogue last October 2014, then it’s still chaos today as people celebrated her return to the streaming giant.
But for some, the timing is a little bit suspicious as her return to the streaming service is the same day as Witness’ release, Katy Perry’s latest effort.
It was a peaceful Sunday night for Swifties until that moment when Kim Kardashian uploaded to her Snapchat account the unauthorized recording of a phone call made by Kanye West to Taylor Swift. It involved West asking Swift about permission to include misogynistic lyrics to his song Famous about Swift owing West sex.
Then the controversy exploded. Celebrities tried to cash in on it for their own fifteen minutes of fame by shading Swift. And the hater had their field day on Twitter.
So what was it that got people to talk negatively about Swift? They said she’s a snake. They said she’s always playing the victim and they’re happy she got a taste of her own medicine. They said she even lied about this whole fiasco.
So what was it? Let us investigate the relationship between West and Swift to fully understand what happened between the two.
It’s been a decade since Taylor Swift debuted to the music scene with her first single. Ever since then, controversy followed her every move. Her dating life, social life, and even her personal life had been subjects of controversies even when she’s not even doing to anything.
And with the Kim and Kanye controversy added to the long list of controversies under her belt, it’s another opportunity for her haters to call her over. So let’s go back to the past times when social media commentators proclaimed that the Taylor Swift phenomenon was over.
2014 will be remembered as the year when Taylor Swift officially transitioned from country music to pop by releasing her “first documented, official pop album” 1989. It came to no surprise as though she is considered as a country artist, her songwriting is more pop than country. Red previewed the transition with the songs We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together, I Knew You Were Trouble, and 22.
1989 was released on October 27, 2014 to critical acclaim and commercial success. It became her third million selling debut in the US with 1.289 million copies sold in its first week. It became the best – selling album in the US in 2014 and since then sold 10 million copies worldwide.
