Returning her catalog back to streaming services like Spotify, Pandora, Tidal and Amazon on June 8, Taylor Swift has yet gotten great results.
According to Billboard, her songs earned $412,000 in just less than two weeks.
Back in 2014, Swift left most streaming platforms over royalty rates for streaming songs.
She pulled all five of her older albums from all streaming platforms as a result, with the exception of Apple Music.
Her action came from the disagreement centered on Spotify’s ad-based rates (which paid artists $.0009 per stream) versus Premium rates (which paid $.0063).
Now, Spotify offers $.0015 per ad-based stream which might be the reason for her come back or as Billboard notes, it could be the fact that Swift’s album sales are no longer in direct competition with free streaming.
