Hell has no fury… like a scorned Taylor Swift.
Since Taylor left Big Machine Records a couple of years ago to join her current record label UMG, the Grammy-award winning singer and songwriter lost the rights to her masters.
The rights to her masters were acquired by Scooter Braun and other music execs. Scooter is the man behind big names like Justin Bieber and Arianna Grande.
So, to regain her rights as the holder of the masters, she has vowed to re-record most of her albums to ensure the new versions fall under her name… and the money goes into her pocket.
She kicked off the revenge rally with her second album, Fearless. It looks like it was worth the effort since the song Love Story (Taylor’s version) garnered 5.8 million in on-demand streams (audio and video combined) in the US on the day of its release, reports MRC Data.
Swift announced the release of the first song by tweeting, “Hey guys so who’s gonna tell 18-year-old me that our love story would still be going strong all these years later? Thanks for the way you fill my life with love 24/7, every damn day”.
The spat between Taylor and Scooter went public when both parties decided to share their feelings on social media. Big names in the industry chose their sides and made it publicly known who they support.
Well, if Taylor has her army of fans behind here and the first single is anything to go by, we think this round was won by Taylor.
