And last night her management team announced the amazing news that Taylor is releasing her entire back catalogue on Spotify.

CBS

The team shared the news on Twitter, revealing that the release was in celebration of 1989 selling over 10 million copies worldwide.

And people promptly lost their shit.

PSA: you can stream taylor swift songs on Spotify!!! i'm so happy lmao ifw her old music hard! brb going to cry listening to enchanted & btd

I'm so happy I could cry😭😭😭 #TaylorSwift #AllMyHSJams #LookAtGod

But there's an interesting detail here, because there was another release scheduled for the exact same timeslot: Katy Perry's new album, Witness.

As we all know, the pair have a long-running feud, and Katy has brought Taylor up a couple of times during the promotional cycle for this album.

Not only did she release a song about Taylor, but she revealed the details of their fallout during her appearance on The Late Late Show.

Not only did she release a song about Taylor, but she revealed the details of their fallout during her appearance on The Late Late Show.

So it didn't take long for people to begin speculating whether the decision to release her back catalogue at the same time was deliberate.

Taylor Swift decides to go back on Spotify the day Katy Perry releases her new album… I'M SURE THIS IS ALL A MASSIV… https://t.co/TJBTw0mOa4

Taylor Swift releasing her full back catalogue on Spotify the same day Katy Perry drops her new album is the level of petty I aspire to be.

Wait. So Taylor Swift put her music back on Spotify the same day Katy Perry released her new album. That's petty as… https://t.co/shfpAn5jy5

Taylor Swift's back catalogue back on Spotify CONVENIENTLY on the same day Katy Perry's new album is released. #OhTheShade

But others thought Taylor wouldn't have even been aware of Katy's album dropping, and the whole thing was simply a coincidence.

Not that I'm defending Taylor Swift but she probably didn't even know Katy's album came out today.

let's be real taylor probably didn't even know katy's album was coming out tonight 💀

I guarantee Taylor didn't even know Katy was releasing her album tonight.. I didn't

And, let's face it, the thing to really be discussing here is the fact that Taylor's entire back catalogue is now readily available for us all.

God bless you, Taylor Alison Swift.
