After an intense yet silent rage of Taylor Swift, Apple agreed to pay artists for streaming their music on Apple Music’s free trial period. The heat grew when a few days ago, Taylor Swift wrote a letter to Apple explaining why she is troubled by the thought of putting her music on the free trial period and not get paid for it. She exclaimed that artists are providing service and Apple has to consider the fact that services are not provided free. Henceforth, in a matter of time, Apple responded and agreed to pay artists, labels and publishers on Apple Music’s free trial period.

However, until this day, it was not sure if Taylor Swift, the keeper of the feud would still want to put her music on Apple Music. Finally, Taylor Swift has agreed to put her top selling album, 1989 on Apple Music as the service is released on 30th this month. The pay schedule devised by Apple for the free trial period is 0.2 cents per stream. Roll down for more details.
