ALOE: TAY TAY WENT TOO FAR

Aloe Blacc has criticized Spotify’s rates, but he doesn’t feel Taylor Swift should’ve yanked her music off the service. He told Page Six: “Musicians shouldn’t block their music…and probably shouldn’t remove their songs... We’re gonna fight our fights in Congress… I’m sure things will change. Streaming services are the way forward… It’s just a matter of getting the laws to work for the songwriter and…for the artist.” Blacc has said that “Wake Me Up,” his 2013 hit with Avicii, got 168m streams, but the three writers earned a piddling $12k.
