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.”

As of Friday, the album, which spawned the hit “Look What You Made Me Do,” is now available in such platforms as Spotify, Apple Music and Amazon.
