Scooter Braun is attempting to make amends with Taylor Swift to put their bad blood behind following their highly publicized feud over the ownership of the singer’s master albums.
The talent manager and record executive posted a congratulatory Tweet on his account early Friday morning not long after the release of Swift’s album ‘Lover’, which marks the singer’s seventh studio album.
In the Tweet, Braun described the album as “brilliant” along with its campaign.
“Regardless of what has been said the truth is you don’t make big bets unless you are a believer and always have been. Brilliant album with #Lover,” Braun wrote in the Tweet. “Congrats @taylorswift13. Supporting was always the healthier option. #brilliantalbum #brilliantcampaign congrats.”
While it’s nice to see the music mogul trying to reach out to Swift following the online war that was waged when he bought Big Machine records, Swifties were quick to express their disapproval of Tweet. Braun was dragged in the comments section with fans of the singer telling him to “get a job” and “stay away from her.” Many were left confused as to why the manager was so vocal of his support for Swift’s album.
For a refresher, Braun took over headlines after he acquired Swift’s former label, Big Machine from Scott Borchetta. But bad publicity quickly overturned news of the for a reported $300 million deal after Swift posted a lengthy blog on Tumblr against Braun. It’s worth noting that Lover is the first album Swift owns. The masters of her past albums now fall under Braun’s ownership along with many more assets from Big Machine.
