Fans of the pop stars started going insane when they realized that Perry's album was also going live at exactly the same moment. In the interest of healing, you can stream both Perry's and Swift's albums below.
But the timing of Swift's decision has sparked a backlash, with the singer accused of being "immature" and "petty". You can listen to Swift's entire music catalog on Spotify, and other streaming services at Midnight ET.
The RIAA announced Swift's sales achievement in a tweet congratulating her on Thursday (June 8).
She wrote on her Tumblr page at the time: "I'm sure you are aware that Apple Music will be offering a free 3 month trial to anyone who signs up for the service". "She started it and it's time for her to finish it". She said Swift refused to speak to her about the issue when she reached out.

Swift, 27, called for her music to be removed from Spotify in November 2014, claiming the streaming service did not fairly pay artists and rights holders for music streamed. They will include the Grammy-winning "1989", according to a statement from Taylor Nation, her official Instagram fan account.
But @HaleyyyEvans said: "Honestly Taylor Swift coming back to Spotify is the best thing that's happened to me all year".
