Ready for it? After an impressive first three weeks of sales, Taylor Swift's Reputation is now streaming on most major music services.

One excited follower tweeted: "Haven't stopped listening to #reputation since its release, but you bet your ass I'm still freaking out about the streaming release".

As anticipated, Reputation hit Spotify, Apply Music, Google Play, Tidal and the other key platforms for a midnight release staggered around the globe, with subscribers in New Zealand and Australia getting in early.

As of midnight on Friday (December 1), Reputation has reached streaming platforms.

So why has she released Reputation on Spotify so swiftly?

Federal Bureau of Investigation arrests 70yo who made ricin & tested it on her neighbors
This was someone other than Miller who also is a Wake Robin resident but who is recovering from apparent mild exposure. Ricin is found naturally in castor beans that can be treated to form a powder that can be inhaled or ingested.


In November 2014, shortly after the release of her previous album - "1989" - Miss Swift dramatically pulled her entire music catalog from Spotify, complaining that streaming arrangements were a bad financial deal for artists like herself due to the way in which the companies operating them calculated and distributed royalties.

She previously put pressure on streaming giants Apple Music to change their policy not to pay artists for streams when users signed up for a three-month free trial.

'I'm not sure you know that Apple Music will not be paying writers, producers, or artists for those three months. Please don't ask us to provide you with our music for no compensation'.

Following the publication of Taylor's letter, Eddy Cue, the Senior Vice-President of Internet Software and Services at Apple, vowed the company would change its policy.
