Taylor pulled her songs from Spotify back in 2014, after criticising the effect streaming services were having on the music industry. - AFP picLOS ANGELES, June 9 ― Taylor Swift is releasing her entire catalogue on all streaming services, ending the pop star's boycott of Spotify Ltd over her ability to limit her songs to paying subscribers.

"Bad Blood" - Her bad blood with Spotify has ended - is Katy Perry next?

Swift originally yanked her discography from Spotify in 2014, just before the release of 1989.

The album was only available to stream on Apple Music after Apple announced that it would pay artists royalties during its free three-month trial.

The "Blank Space" singer concluded her letter: "It's not too late to change this policy". Up until now, Apple Music has been the only place to listen to her music.

Perry also addressed producer Max Martin, who worked with Swift on "Bad Blood" but who has also worked with Perry during her career.

Good news for Taylor Swift fans! The pop icon previously explained that her decision was due to how the services were taking advantage of artists and that they weren't fairly compensating them for their work. What this means is that if you're a Spotify user or if you use any other music streaming service, you should now be able to access the artist's entire catalog of music, assuming that's what you want.

Swift's official Instagram fan account posted the news on Thursday night.

Last month, Perry finally confirmed that the two have been beefing for years, and it looks like Taylor may have responded to Katy telling their business in her own unique way. She told talk show host Jimmy Fallon the song was "a great anthem for people to use whenever somebody's trying to hold you down or bully you".
