Well okay then!

Looks like Taylor Swift is officially the HBIC. According to reports, Taylor got Apple Music to change their policy on payment for artists…

 

According to  USA Today,

Over the weekend, Swift, in one of her signature polite missives, posted an “open letter” (entitled “To Apple, Love, Taylor,” ) on Tumblr, taking Apple Music to task for deciding not to pay artists for their music streamed during a free trial period for its new streaming service.
How could a company so “historically progressive and generous” behave this way, she demanded. That’s why, she wrote, her album, 1989, the top-selling album of 2014 and of 2015 so far, won’t be on Apple’s service.

And just like that, Apple reversed its decision.

“We hear you @taylorswift13 and indie artists. Love, Apple,” tweeted Apple’s Senior Vice President of Internet Software and Services, Eddy Cue, on Sunday night.

Stay Tuned.
