21 year old Taylor Waters singer-songwriter releases Delirious. The Vancouver based pop artist first gained traction with her debut single ‘Little Sister’ racking up streams, landing on Spotify playlists like “Indie Pop Chill Out”, “Poptronix” and “Happy Hits”. Taylor notes, “I wrote the song in my bed at like 2 am when I should have been sleeping or at least working on one of my thousand papers due. But Instead, I wrote a song about a messed up relationship I was in.” “I just wanted to write something that was relatable and honest. My goal is to always create music that people can connect with.” Give it a listen.
Arista wins the battle over viral artist Ant Saunders. The New Jersey native released the track Yellow Hearts in June and quickly found a place on TikTok, streaming over 600,000 total videos. The track landed on Spotify’s Pop Rising . Finally, Apple Music came on board and backed the song, placing the track on Feeling Happy and Pure Pop 50 and Today’s Top Hits.
After a major label bidding war, the Spotify viral artist Arizona Zervas signed with Columbia Records. The war heated up after the success of his track ‘ROXANNE’ which grabbed the #1 spot on Spotify’s US Top 50. Apple followed suit and added the track to Today’s Hits playlist. The 24-year-old Arizona Zervas hails from Maryland and gained serious numbers on TikTok and YouTube before taking over Spotify.
Taylor Swift claimed Scooter Braun and Scott Borchetta from Big Machine are blocking her from performing her own songs at the AMAs. Label boss Scott Borchetta says this a fabrication.
Big Machine also claims Taylor’s admitted to owing the company millions of dollars….
Big Machine says “Taylor made a unilateral decision last night to enlist her fanbase in a calculated manner that greatly affects the safety of our employees and their families.
The label says … “Taylor, the narrative you have created does not exist.”
“The truth is, Taylor has admitted to contractually owing millions of dollars and multiple assets to our company, which is responsible for 120 hardworking employees who helped build her career. We have worked diligently to have a conversation about these matters with Taylor and her team to productively move forward. We started to see progress over the past two weeks and were optimistic as recently as yesterday that this may get resolved. However, despite our persistent efforts to find a private and mutually satisfactory solution, Taylor made a unilateral decision last night to enlist her fanbase in a calculated manner that greatly affects the safety of our employees and their families.
Taylor Swift injected herself back into the press and released a not-so-nice love letter with claims that Scott Borchetta, her former label head at Big Machine Records, and Scooter Braun (Justin Bieber manager) are trying to sabotage her performance at the American Music Awards.
Taylor released her statement on an Instagram story, Facebook and Twitter with the headline “Don’t know what else to do.”
Taylor says her former label team Big Machine told her she would be allowed the use of her old songs only if she agreed not to re-record them in the future and if she affirmed she would not speak negatively going forward. She rejected both offers.
The feud started when Taylor Swift claimed she was denied an opportunity to buy back her masters from Big Machine Label Group. Big Machine tells another story – label boss Scott Borchetta said Swift was well aware that her masters were for sale and never made an offer.
