Taylor “Music Should Not Be Free” Swift pulled most of her catalog from Spotify today, which prompted the streaming music service to respond like only an awkward high-school boyfriend would: with a mixtape full of not-so-secret messages.
A 15-song playlist from the account @SpotifyCares called “Come back, Taylor!” spells out the following message with its song titles: “Hey Taylor, we wanted to play your amazing love songs and they’re not here right now. We want you back with us and so do, do, do your fans.”
Perhaps Swift would change her mind about never ever getting back together with Spotify if artists earned more than a fraction of a cent per song stream. (Or if Spotify came up with a less random playlist.)
