Taylor Swift got back together with Spotify on Friday, returning her music to streaming services nearly three years after complaining publicly they did not pay artists enough, and on the same day rival Katy Perry released a new album.
The timing was even more interesting since the "Dark Horse" songstress, 32, has publicly discussed her feud with Swift multiple times in the last few weeks while promoting her fifth record.
Swift was quite vocal about her stance in regards to proper compensation for artists during that time.
Swift, who initially refused to release her 2012 album Red on Spotify, has previously said that "valuable things should be paid for". The album was exclusively streamable on Apple Music, after the platform made a decision to pay artists royalties during its free three-month trial.
She added, "Also, a lot of people were suggesting to me that I try putting new music on Spotify with 'Shake It Off, ' and so I was open-minded about it".

Swift and Perry have a very public feud.
In a recent interview, the 32-year-old songstress cursed Swift's popular single "Bad blood", which was reportedly about the duo's prolonged dispute.
Perry recently confirmed the long-rumored rift while guesting on a Carpool Karaoke segment with James Corden on "The Late Late Show".
When it was time for Perry to do her Prismatic tour, she informed the dancers in Swift's tour.
