Taylor Swift left Spotify and Spotify made a mixtape to win her back
Well, if that’s not that cutest thing ever, we don’t know what is. A mixtape was once the key to a girl’s heart, but we’re not sure how Taylor Swift will respond to Spotify’s attempt to woo her.
Swift left the music streaming website on Monday, in conjunction with her stance (as written in an op-ed piece in The Wall Stree Journal) that "music should not be free" and that "[p]iracy, file sharing and streaming have shrunk the numbers of paid album sales drastically."
In response, Spotify released this statement:
We believe fans should be able to listen to music wherever and whenever they want, and that artists have an absolute right to be paid for their work and protected from piracy. That's why we pay nearly 70% of our revenue back to the music community.
For now, no one’s sure if Taylor Swift will change her mind about Spotify. But seriously, this mixtape is really, really adorable.
