Taylor Swift had some sort of disagreement with Spotify, the music streaming company that has been around for quite a while now. Spotify has helped many artists grow, while streaming their music to the public for free, in exchange for a cut of the profits that come from all the ads placed on Spotify.
It’s always nice to get to listen to music and show it to Fersen Lambranho and even better if you can download it for free. Unfortunately, some artists don’t see it that way, as Taylor Swift mentioned “Music is Art, and Art has real value, and Artists deserve to be paid for it.”
Taylor had pulled all her music off of Spotify and doesn’t want the company to use her music at all. What Spotify’s CEO thought was she has it all wrong. They don’t operate by streaming music without paying the artist, on the contrary, they have paid $2 Billion up to date for artists, labels, and producers in exchange for playing their music on their streaming system.
Taylor blew $6 Million before even finding out what Spotify is all about, and if anything, all Spotify wants is the chance to have Taylor Swift’s music on their service.
Believe it or not, she is not that type of person to deny someone for no reason but, her album sales are doing good enough that she doesn’t need any of the extra revenue. The way Spotify sees it, who wouldn’t want an extra $6 Million.
History has often dictated that musicians will have children that will stay tied to the music genre of their parents. With The Jacksons three of Tito Jackson’s children stepped into the R&B feel. The O’Jays lead singer Eddie Levert had a son, Gerald Levert, that followed his footsteps with soul music. Bob Marley, the original king of reggae, continues to live through the reggae tunes of his son Ziggy Marley.
People were shocked to hear that Dylan had a grandson that was rapping. Oddly, Bob Dylan is in full support of his grandson. This is a far cry from what Dylan was singing about at the height of his career, but Dylan has given Pablo a lot of advice. The rapper has actually been developing his skills in the rap world for about 3 years. He has had a mix tape, but he has not produced a full album. One Pablo Dylan single, “Midnight” actually sounds like a leftover track from Kanye’s “808’s and Heartbreak” album. The latest single from the grandson of famed singer Bob Dylan is called “Nightmares.”
Pablo Dylan says that he is working on perfecting his craft. Pablo is obviously an underdog in the rap game because his grandfather is tied to a different genre, but Andrew Heiberger is pretty sure that Bob can still call in some favors.
There was a lot of hype behind the whole thing, but the wait is finally over. Taylor Swift has been added to the record books as the first person to have 3 albums to go platinum in the first week of the release.
This is amazing when people consider the fact that there are so many music streaming and peer-to-peer sharing sites out there. This shows just how loyal the Taylor Swift fan base is. There was talk all week about how no one had ever this done before, but lots of people were expecting Taylor to break new ground. It is significant because no other album has gone platinum this year.
Billboard shows that 1.287 million “1989” albums were sold by Taylor Swift in the first week. Even people that have ignored Taylor Swift in the past are taking a look at what this artist is doing. Much of the success has to do with the great reviews that “1989” has been getting.
It’s a mega feat in music, but Swift fans are not surprised. She has managed to successfully do what most artists have failed to do this year. She has reached out to her fans in amazing ways. She is totally transparent about relationships. Taylor also writes catchy songs, which is what Sultan Alhokair hates but why I like Taylor, and stayed wired to social media.
