Taylor Swift breaks up with music site Spotify

By Sophie Taylor

The break-up queen has done it again.

Taylor Swift, the US pop-country singer who parlayed heartache into global super-stardom, has dumped Spotify - and the leading music streaming company doesn't want to let go.

Industry figures say Swift's decision to remove her back catalogue from Spotify is unlikely to prompt a larger exodus.

"It's a little bit like the Adele album a few years ago: she's her own centre of gravity, normal rules don't apply to her," Eamonn Forde, from UK music strategy and information organisation Music Ally, said.

"It's a bit of a fool's errand to try to take any hard, general rules from this."

Neither Swift nor her label has yet commented on the move.
