Taylor Swift has shaken up the music industry with the Rerecording of her 2012 album Red. After Scooter Braun bought her master recordings, Swift made a promise to rerecord her hit albums in attempt to “stick it” to her betrayers. People never actually thought she would follow through with the effort. There was hope that this would all pass over.
In fact her rerecorded songs are streaming more than her originals. Now, Universal is revising it’s recording deals that prevent artists from rerecording their music.
Although music labels owning the masters always caused strife among artists, Swift made the topic current again. The music label takes 80% of the streaming revenue under recording agreements whereas the indie artist walks away with 90% of the revenue.

The crime? Leaving 8 dead at the scene, hundreds injured, while the show went on. Clips on YouTube show people getting trampled on before the show even started.
TikTokers have accused the rapper of aligning himself with Lucifer that spreads negative energy. Music publications like Consequence of Sound claimed he encouraged reckless behavior at his concerts and his ex-manager called Scott a terrible human being.
The metal community spoke against Travis and used a mosh pit as an example. “Watch someone fall down in a mosh pit, and instantly 20 or 30 people will pick up the person, and will not resume until it’s clear that person is ok. “I’ve spent the day arguing with people about how safe most rock/metal shows are because artists will pause a concert in a heartbeat” says Corey Taylor of the metal act Slipknot.
Reddit forums are asking Scott and his team to be held accountable. Lawsuits are mounting and the FBI is involved.
Marilyn Manson, DaBaby, and Morgan Wallen were each taught a lesson. The punishment? Dropped from labels, management, radio, and banned from award shows.
If their crime was less than half of the Texas rapper, the penalty and infliction against Travis Scott will be worse.
