Swift’s Music Gone From Spotify

Pop star Taylor Swift has removed all of her singles and albums from the free music listening site Spotify.

She did not release her new album 1989 onto the site and has since taken down every one of her songs that was available on Spotify.

Taylor has not yet commented on the reasons she has removed her music but has said in the past that fans accessing music for free   undervalues artists.

Artists make barely any money from fans listening to their music on Spotify as it is free and has limited advertising meaning not much of the money earned goes to artists with music on the site.

Spotify say they hope she will change her mind soon.

In a statement they said: “We love Taylor Swift, and our more than 40 million users love her even more!”

I think this is just gonna increase the piracy of the album/songs.If I were an artist I think i’ll rather get some money from free listening that actually getting none.

I support Taylors decision. She spent ages practicing and writing these songs and now people are getting them free. She deserves money for the songs she sings.

I have mixed opinions.Its true that she spent a long time making the songs,but doesen’t she earn enough money already?

I think she has the right to have taken down her songs because, she worked hard to make her songs and she doesn’t get any thing back for it as spotify lets people listen to it for free.

I support Taylor and her decision because everyone can listen to her music for free and its not fair for people that by her albums that cost money. Also she’s not making enough money.

I agree with her decision that she made because her job is to make music so if she isn’t getting paid for it, that’s unfair.
