The singer allowed to stream her album 1989 on Apple Music. This decision was made after Apple reversed its plans to pay artists no royalties for the trial period their tracks are available on Apple Music. Taylor Swift officially confirmed this move on Twitter. She and Apple had traded tweets and blogposts over whether musicians should be paid during the trial period.
A few days ago, the singer criticized Apple’s decision not to pay artists during the trial period. In respond, the tech giant tweeted back at Swift to inform they would reverse their decision and pay artists during and after the first months. Taylor Swift had argued that such policy was to the detriment of emerging artists. She brought examples of the new bands that has just released their first works and won’t be paid for their success, or the young songwriters who just got their first cut and thought that the royalties would get them out of debt.
Taylor Swift announced that she would allow to stream her album 1989, clarifying that the deal is not exclusive. It should be noted that Swift had previously refused to allow this album to be streamed on other online services like Spotify, objecting to her music being made available for free. Since October 2014, Taylor Swift’s album 1989 sold 1.3 million copies in its first week, becoming the fastest selling album over the last 12 years.
As for much anticipated Apple Music, the streaming service is scheduled to launch in the end of June. Its first exclusive will be Pharrell Williams’s next single
