Taylor Swift’s Midnights Caused Spotify To Crash

There was a long countdown on Spotify, and then Taylor Swift’s new album, Midnights, was finally ready to stream.

Numerous Spotify subscribers have complained that the app routinely crashes on Android and iOS, preventing them from accessing their accounts. Some customers have complained that their Spotify app stopped working unexpectedly even though they were not logged out. They said it seemed like there was an issue with the connection to the internet. According to Downdetector.com, the number of reports of a Spotify outage skyrocketed to over 9,000 in India. 

Taylor Swift’s Midnights Have Multiple Artists Making An Appearance

Even though other providers also provide Midnights for listening, Spotify has been counting down for over 15 days. The release of Taylor Swift‘s tenth studio album was met with much fanfare, leading to an overwhelming influx of listeners and a subsequent crash of the streaming music service Spotify. Even though Swifties were trending on Twitter, neither Spotify nor Taylor Swift commented on the service interruption. At the time of publication, Downdetector’s data suggested that Spotify was functioning normally again. Fans of Taylor Swift should not have any trouble finding Midnights on the streaming service. In addition, Taylor Swift will shortly upload her first music video, Anti-Hero, to YouTube.

In fact, it was not the first time Taylor Swift had successfully taken Spotify offline. When Taylor Swift re-released Red from 2012 at the end of 2017, Spotify had an outage, sending her fans into a frenzy. Taylor Swift has stated that she originally heard the term “Lavender Haze” in reference to being in love while watching the TV series Mad Men and that the album’s lead single, “Anti-Hero,” which delves into her vulnerabilities, is one of her favorite songs that she has ever written.

Swift also mentioned Lana Del Rey, whose singing appears on “Snow On The Beach,” as an artist she has always liked.
