Taylor Swift has shaken the internet world for the nth time last week, after she revealed that her former music label did not allow her to sing her own old hits at the upcoming American Music Awards (AMA) 2019 on November 24.
After Swift had told the world about the bad news, Big Machine Label Group later denied her accusations.
However, Swifties, do not need to fret, as Taytay can still perform her songs after Big Machine Label Group and Dick Clark Productions, producer of the AMAs, have said on their Monday statement.
Both parties clarified that “recording artists do not need label approval for live performances on television or any other live media,” but “record label approval is only needed for contracted artists’ audio and visual recordings and in determining how those works are distributed.”
They have reached a licensing agreement that would allow Swift to sing whatever she loves to sing at the ceremony.
Swift and Braun saga
Swift has initially called the music industry mogul Scooter Braun over the majority stake in the master recordings of her first six albums.
Therefore, Swift has planned to re-record her albums to create copies that she can call her own. Her current contract even allows her to redo her first to fifth albums in November 2020.
She would definitely be back in the studio just to redo the recording of her songs.
Swift is now under the Universal Music Group. She signed an agreement with her new music label last year, which covers the latest release of her seventh album “Lover.”
