Like any good capitalist, Taylor Swift made sure to create an artificial scarcity for “Reputation,” her album that dropped on November 10. The singer helped ensure her record-breaking sales figures by keeping the album off of streaming services for the rest of the month. That had executives stressing out, but everyone can finally take a deep breath. “Reputation” is now available for streaming.

Taylor Swift’s “Reputation” is out on Friday. The new album will likely be a sales powerhouse, as most of Taylor’s albums are. With record-setting pre-order numbers, “Reputation” promises to make Taylor obscene amounts of cash.
But there are some music industry pros who are worried about being left out of the money-making bonanza. Top executives from four major streaming services spoke anonymously with the New York Times about their fears that Taylor’s new music wouldn’t be on their platforms when the album drops.
Selena Gomez recently sat down with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe for a chat about her new song “Wolves” and what comes next. According to Selena, she’s sitting on two albums’ worth of unreleased music that is ready to go. While she hinted a surprise release may be coming soon, she made it clear she wasn’t planning on releasing an album at all.
There are only a few days left until Niall Horan can put the world to sleep with his debut album “Flicker.” And just to make sure his fans have all of the tools for a good night’s rest, the singer is also releasing a short film.
Niall Horan doesn’t want anyone to sleep on his upcoming album. “Flicker” is going to drop on October 20 and Niall is stealing something else from Harry Styles for the launch. Just like Harry and Taylor Swift, Niall’s new album is getting an Apple Music documentary.
Harry Styles has offered up an extended teaser for his upcoming Apple Music documentary. A new video showing the live studio recording of his song “Two Ghosts” is out now, and Harry proves he doesn’t have to act when it comes to his music.
Complete with a six-piece band, Harry nails the track while strumming along on an acoustic guitar. He may have to keep checking his fingers to make sure he’s hitting the right chords, but that doesn’t stop him from delivering an emotional vocal performance on the breakup ballad.
It’s enough to shut down anyone who might’ve doubted the former boy band member’s musical prowess. Unsurprisingly, the clip also offers up a look at another of Harry’s unconventional style choices.
