Tay­lor Swift Leaves Spo­tify

iPhone Life Magazine - - Istats -

Tay­lor Swift, a known op­po­nent of mu­sic-stream­ing ser­vices, pulled her mu­sic from Spo­tify af­ter the re­lease of her lat­est al­bum, 1989. Spo­tify CEO Daniel Ek re­sponded to Swift’s de­ci­sion with a lengthy blog post, in which he in­sisted that Spo­tify helps artists rather than hin­ders them. “We started Spo­tify be­cause we love mu­sic and piracy was killing it,” Ek re­marked. He went on to say that Spo­tify had paid more than $2 bil­lion to artists since the ser­vice launched in 2008.
