She left the label that her father owns?

And, don't artists overestimate the streaming income? Spotify lives on google adsense and adsense income is a dollar for 1000 views in the richest parts of the world. 100 000 views = 100 dollars. Not of big help for new artists, but big difference for Taylor herself and for her already rich and famous friends.

I want to be so naive to believe that TS cares about others.

That is weird!
I cant believe Big Machine would not have given her everything UMG promised her. She already got everything (played the biggest venues, no 1s, made more money than every other artist for many years) while being with them. Maybe family conflicts? Or has UMG really something special to offer for her?

The quoted part of the deal has nothing to do with streaming income, as i understand it, it only means if UMG sells their Spotify stock on 'wall street' their artists will get some of the money. This probably means UMG will hold their Spotify shares longer. Good for Spotify?! I think this is manly a small publicity bonus for Taylor.

Well, Big Machine is UMG. And their roster is small, 20 artists or so.

So basically, it's the same thing... with different name.

About the royalties and stuff, she put her catalogue out of Apple Music in order to gain what she wanted, which was a smart move at the time. But I agree with you guys, looks like a publicity stunt.

Has anyone heard the karaoke version of reputation? The backing vocals in the chorus of IDSB are amazing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oyUeH_H0q9c

I'm still not a big fun of the album... So It Goes grew a bit on me though.

Taylor wrote an article about songwriting.
Worth a read.
