Apple backs down to Taylor Swift, changes how Apple Music pays artists

Taylor Swift 1989

Taylor Swift has forced Apple to change its policy on how it will pay artists for its upcoming music streaming service by penning a Tumblr post titled, "To Apple, Love Taylor." In the letter Swift explains why she withheld her album, 1989, from Apple Music. Swift said she found it "shocking," "disappointing," and completely unlike Apple not to pay writers, producers and artists for songs played during a user's free 90-day-trial of Apple Music.
