Taylor Swift is getting back together with Spotify—but her feud with Katy Perry continues.

The “Shake It Off” singer’s entire music catalog—including her Grammy album of the year-winning 1989 —returned to the popular streaming service Friday, as well as all other streaming platforms including Amazon Music. Swift had previously pulled all her music from Spotify in 2014.

Friday also marks the release of Swift rival Perry’s new album, Witness, a coincidence that has raised more than a few eyebrows on Twitter.

Swift’s management explained the decision to put the music back on Spotify in a tweet Thursday, saying that the singer wanted to thank her fans for helping her achieve 10 million sales of 2014’s 1989 globally.

"We can confirm that Taylor Swift’s entire back catalog is now available on Spotify for her millions of fans to enjoy,” a Spotify spokesperson told Newsweek .

Swift’s “Bad Blood” with Spotify dates back to October 2014 when she withheld 1989 from the music streaming service and then pulled the rest of her music from Spotify a month later.

In an interview with Yahoo at the time, Swift explained that she was “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.” She doubled down on her criticism in an interview with Vanity Fair in 2015, branding Spotify a “startup with no cash flow.”

Swift has been vocal about ensuring artists are compensated fairly for their work as streaming has overtaken the more lucrative revenue stream of digital downloads and physical sales in the last three years.

In 2015, the singer’s open letter to Apple led to the tech giant reversing its policy on revenue sharing for Apple Music. The company initially held out on paying artists for streams of their music during a user’s three-month free trial of the product. It eventually changed tack and Swift’s music— 1989 included—was available when Apple Music launched. Swift has since starred in commercials for the brand and Apple also exclusively hosted her 1989 tour concert film.

As for Swift versus Perry, that pop rivalry is unlikely to die down anytime soon. Swift’s suspiciously timed Spotify return comes after Perry opened up to The Late Late Show ’s James Corden about their animosity in May.

Swift’s “Bad Blood,” about friends-turned-enemies, is thought to be about Perry. The drama stems from Swift accusing Perry of poaching backing dancers from her world tour.

In an interview in British music magazine NME Friday, Perry said Swift was trying to “assassinate my character with little girls,” referring to Swift’s fans.
