Swifties are surely rejoicing right now. Taylor Swift is on #Spotify again. Yes, users of the streaming service can now listen to, download, and sing along to their favorite #Taylor Swift songs.

I might not be her number one fan but I have caught myself singing along to most of her songs. I loved "Blank Space" so much. Hey, who can't identify with "Got a long list of ex-lovers. They'll tell you I'm insane," right?

Swift versus Perry: a recap

Before anything else, it can be recalled that the two pop stars who used to be friends allegedly had issues over stolen dancers, indirect social media posts referring to each other, and even ex-boyfriend drama.

Swift even came out with a song about the so-called beef, in the form of "Bad Blood." Until now, nothing has cleared up the alleged rift between the two.

Entire Taylor Swift music catalog, now on Spotify

Meanwhile, remember Swift's disagreement with the service when the former withdrew all her music back in 2014? Apparently, Swift believed that there was some unfair treatment going on with how Spotify was treating artists. "I'm not willing to contribute my life's work to an experiment that I don't feel fairly compensates the writers, producers, artists, and creators of this music," Swift said.

Now, Swift's albums like "1989," "Red," "Speak Now," and "Fearless" (among others) are all one click away for Spotify users. Fellow likers and lovers of her songs, aren't you curious how many downloads her songs have had since they returned to the streaming service? This makes us curious, right? I am looking forward to that information soon.

For sure, it will come out.

Did Katy Perry have something to do with this?

Now, some would suspect that Katy Perry dropping her brand new album, "Witness" would have something to do with Swift's decision. Well, sources said that it was just a coincidence -- not to steal Perry's thunder or anything.

According to Billboard, Swift's camp has long been planning to once and for all put her music back on Spotify. Swift's camp is yet to comment about the issue, so stay tuned for more updates.

Moving on, it seems possible that Swift now has control to some degree, of what she originally wanted from the streaming service: all thanks to Spotify's new deal with Universal Music Group. This agreement permits the label’s artists to “window” their releases on the paid service before the free tier.

So what else can I say, but welcome back, Taytay? You made a lot of people happy with this move, as Twitter has been ablaze with happy posts about the news.
