In case you missed it, earlier today Taylor Swift shared an open letter with her fans about Apple Music’s free trial period terms– telling fans Apple had no intentions on paying artist royalty for their music during the free 3 month trial period…Swift, wrote how unfair that was to up and coming artist and threatened to pull her 1989 catalog…
Hours after the open letter surfaced Apple responded to Swift in a series of tweets from Eddy Cue, a key lieutenant of CEO Tim Cook.
“#AppleMusic will pay artist for streaming, even during customer’s free trial period,” Cue tweeted, adding that “We hear you @taylorswift13 and indie artists. Love, Apple.”
Swift quickly acknowledged the change. “I am elated and relieved,” she tweeted. “Thank you for your words of support today. They listened to us.”
Wow the power in numbers !!!! Everybody needs a Taylor Swift on their team!
