Well, it appears the songstress has just done a complete 180, with her representative now confirming her entire catalog will return to all streaming platforms today (Friday 9 June).
Swift shook off Spotify in 2014, after the release of her "1989" album, because she said streaming services didn't pay artists enough. The singer initially voiced concerns about Apple's free three-month trial, which under original terms, would withhold royalties for artists whose songs were played by non-paying customers.
Some people were unimpressed with Swift's timing - coming on the same day as Perry released new album Witness.
No streaming service besides Apple Music was able to stream "1989".
At the height of her pop powers, Perry scored a record-breaking six USA number one singles from 2010's Teenage Dream album. "I thought, 'I will try this; I'll see how it feels.' It didn't feel right to me". The pop star, 27, previously pulled her songs from Spotify in November 2014 when she took a stand against the streaming service's compensation plan for artists.
Taylor Swift's come back into the spotlight comes at the flawless moment, and we'll let you know why. From there, the popcorn-eating masses got to enjoy lots of Twitter shade and Swift's "Bad Blood", which is about the whole beef.
Katy Perry's "Witness" and all of Taylor Swift's music are on Spotify now.
But @HaleyyyEvans said: "Honestly Taylor Swift coming back to Spotify is the best thing that's happened to me all year".
