The announcement by Swift may ramp up rivalry with Perry, 32, who released her new album's first single, "Swish Swish", last month.

Taylor Swift just gave her fans the biggest gift - albeit with suspect timing.

Taylor Swift is celebrating sailing past 100 million song sales by releasing her entire back catalogue on all streaming services tonight.

Swift's latest album "1989" sold more than 10 million copies, and that's without Spotify and Google Play streaming access.

"I mean, I'm not Buddha-things irritate me", she said.

The deal also prompted Irish premier Enda Kenny to warn that such an alliance could upset Northern Ireland's fragile peace. Davis also said walking away without securing a deal with the remaining 27 European Union states remained a possibility.

Lo and behold, her music re-appeared at midnight on Friday on services like Tidal, Pandora and Spotify.

The 27-year old award-winning singer, #Taylor Swift, has now finally chose to let bygones be bygones and has released all of her songs to all #streaming services.

Taylor Swift's entire back catalogue has returned to Spotify and other streaming services - the same night Katy Perry's new album was released. Especially when someone tries to assassinate my character with little girls [their respective fan groups]. Swift also took Apple to task in mid-2015 over its announcement that it would not pay songwriters, producers or artists during Apple Music's three-month free trial period.

'I didn't see that happening, perception-wise, when I put my music on Spotify.

Others believe her move is not calculated at all, and is proof that streaming services are the way forward for the music industry. At the time, she explained her decision to Yahoo, saying that artists were not being fairly paid for their work. "When I woke up this morning and saw what Taylor had written, it really solidified that we needed a change", Apple senior vice president of internet services and software Eddy Cue told Billboard at the time.
