After withholding her latest No. 1 album, “Reputation,” from streaming services for three weeks, pop superstar Taylor Swift and her team have finally lifted the said “boycott.”

The move by Taylor is seen as a marketing strategy, however. And if it were, it sure worked, according to the New York Times. “Reputation” sold 1,216,000 copies in the United States on its first week; the following week, another 232,000, the report, citing Nielsen, said. — ALLAN POLICARPIO
