Spotify Begs Taylor Swift To Come Back After She Deletes All Her Songs

share on:

Taylor Swift deleted all her songs from Spotify, and the music streaming service badly wants her back.

Not surprising, as her latest album 1989 looks set to be the first album of 2014 to be certified platinum.

The only song of hers remaining on the service is Safe & Sound, from The Hunger Games soundtrack.

“We hope she’ll change her mind and join us in building a new music economy that works for everyone,” Spotify posted, noting that 16 million of its users have played Taylor Swift music in the last 30 days and that she appears on 19 million playlists.

Swift refused to allow her 2012 album, Red, on Spotify when it first debuted, but it later appeared for Spotify users to enjoy. 1989 never appeared on Spotify. The artist has also been vocal about her thoughts on music sharing.

“Piracy, file sharing and streaming have shrunk the numbers of paid album sales drastically, and every artist has handled this blow differently,” Swift wrote in a Wall Street Journal op-ed earlier this year. “It’s my opinion that music should not be free, and my prediction is that individual artists and their labels will someday decide what an album’s price point is. I hope they don’t underestimate themselves or undervalue their art.
