Now That She’s Won Taylor Swift’s Entire ‘1989’ Album Will Be On Apple Music!
In case you missed it, the other day, Taylor Swift wrote a letter slamming Apple Music for refusing to pay Artists royalties, during the 3-month Free Trial subscribers will receive when the new streaming service is rolled out on June 30th. Apple took a step back and conceded to Swift and will pay artists for songs streamed (allegedly, a mere $0.002/per song streamed – per Business Insider).
Regardless of Taylor’s “victory,” you might have noticed that her 1989 album is no where to be found on iTunes – well, that’s because she pulled it off there and refused to have iTunes sell it. That just changed. Taylor took to twitter today and announced that she will be putting her entire 1989 album on Apple Music so that fans can stream it for free (during the initial 3-month free trail) and she can make $0.002/per song streamed while doing so. Thank you, Taylor? For more info on Apple Music and the streaming service click HERE.
After the events of this week, I've decided to put 1989 on Apple Music…and happily so.
