The internet reacts to Taylor Swift's return to streaming services

Posted on

Swifties can finally rejoice: At 12 a.m. on Friday morning, Taylor Swift’s entire catalog arrived on streaming platforms. The move comes amid a publicly quiet period for the 27-year-old — at a February concert, she said she wouldn’t perform again for the rest of 2017 — she’s rumored to be at work on a new album, which her friend and collaborator Ed Sheeran teased might might drop later this year.

Still, the timing of the move from Swift — who has previously decried the same streaming services her music now appears on — isn’t totally inexplicable.

Today marks the release of Katy Perry’s fifth studio albumWitness.

Given the timing, some voices on the internet are suspicious, but others are perfectly content to shake it off to Swift’s hits — and who can blame them?

Below, check out the best celebrity and fan reactions to Swift’s return to streaming services.
