Music superstar Taylor Swift has voiced her reasons for not allowing her music to be played on Apple’s new music streaming service.
In an open letter to Apple, Swift voices her admiration for the company, saying that the “innovators and creators at Apple are pioneering in their field” but that they should be paying artists for their music. Under the new streaming service, Apple Music, users will get a three month trial but the artists miss out on being paid.
Apple swiftly changed their policy and will now be paying artists to play their music throughout the free three-month trial.
Swift is no stranger to success, and wants to make sure that new and up-and-coming artists will be paid for their work.
Swift has removed her catalogue of music from other music streaming services such as Spotify.
There has been no word on whether Swift’s music will be available on Apple Music.
The service will launch on June 30.
