    The dispute between Taylor Swift and Scooter Braun date back to 2019, when Braun bought the entirety of Taylor Swift’s masters and acquired the rights to all her first six albums, from debut to ‘Reputation‘. Along with the songs, he also owned the music videos and got the royalty of any of her music that was streamed by fans.

    Swift retaliated by saying that she wasn’t informed about the decision at all, while Braun argued that she knew about the news and was even given a chance to buy them herself. This led to a major dispute between the two as several musicians took sides while Swift talked about artists and their rights to own their own music.

    She also provoked her fans to go after Braun and the artists he manages, namely Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber. This resulted in them getting cyberbullied by Swifties.

    Later on, the ‘Down Bad‘ singer decided to re record all her albums, including songs that she had scrapped of during the release, calling them ‘Taylor’s Version‘. So far, she has released all the albums except ‘Reputation‘ and most of them have outsold the original versions.

    As of now, she makes music under Republic Records and has released 5 albums with the label in the last 5 years.
