Taylor Swift it remained for more than a year a war an open and public with his former record label Big Machine and since a little more time with the manager to many stars american Scooter Braun.
The last episode of this battle generated by the purchase of the first six discs of the singer of the who does not own the rights comes with the creation of a band, Jack Leopards and the Dolphin Clubof which, a priori, no one knew anything but that a force of pulling the thread has finished finding the connection.
It all started last week when the BBC released a new episode of Killing Eve. It was then when Taylor Swift posted on social networks that I was completely amazed of the version of Look what you make me do that appeared at the end of the chapter.
And as always, Taylor writes something on networks it was clear that he had a surprise for you to discover. The band does not have any other song credited to his name and the name is familiar to the world ‘swifter’ as the brother of the soloist, was known in the networks with the user to The Dolphin Club.
Perhaps you do not believe that the male voice in this version is the brother of Taylor or the Jack Leopards is Jack Antonoff, usual collaborator of Swift, but taking a look at the credits of the version of this song figure Nils Sjoberg, usual alter-ego of the performer.
Taking all this into account it seems to be clear that this is a new move of the master of the singer for his former firm and the new owner of the rights of their songs do not earn a penny more with their previous work.
Already made that clear in condemning the release of a live album without their permission: “it seems to Me that Scooter Braun and their investors financial statements 23 Capital, Alex Rosos and family and the Carlyle Group have seen their recent balance sheets and have realized that paying 330 millóndes of dollars for my music was not a wise decision and they need money. In my opinion… another case of shameful greed in times of coronavirus. As insipid as very transparent”.

Open war between Taylor Swift, Scooter Braun and Justin Bieber
In November 2018 I told you that Taylor Swift changed the record label for their entire life (Big Machine) by signing a new contract with Republic Records (Universal Music). In this news explained the importance of the rights of their songs stay in your old seal, and that Universal was negotiating to buy it. But it was not so: his music catalog was purchased by Scooter Braun, manager of Justin Bieber, J Balvin, Demi Lovato, and Ariana Grande (among other artists). Scott Borchetta, owner of Big Machine, sold the entire catalog for $ 300 million in mid-2019.
“My musical legacy has fallen into the hands of who has always tried to dismantle it,” he wrote at the end of June Taylor Swift about her enmity with Braun who was accused of screening the call with Kanye West (who later showed that it had been edited). His anger was monumental and that was demonstrated in the enganchón who was with Justin Bieber in the wake of it.
Far from calming down, it seems that every step that affects the six albums that Taylor Swift released before his departure makes the situation worse. In addition to this live album you have to remember that the singer has already claimed that her previous label did not allow him to act in direct performing his old songs during their performance at the American Music Awards.
