Apple has rescinded its decision to not pay artists any royalties during its Apple Music streaming service’s three month trial, which will launch at the end of this month. The decision is a result of Taylor Swift’s open letter to the tech giant, which outlines why she would not be putting her hit album 1989 on Apple Music. According to Swift, “I’m sure you are aware that Apple Music will be offering a free 3 month trial to anyone who signs up for the service. I’m not sure you know that Apple Music will not be paying writers, producers, or artists for those three months. I find it to be shocking, disappointing, and completely unlike this historically progressive and generous company.” The post went viral, and afterwards, many artists backed the singer’s words. Now, Apple senior vice president of Internet services and software Eddy Cue announced on Twitter that the company would be paying artists in a direct response to Swift’s requests.
