In a feud over compensation for Apple Music’s free trial period, Taylor Swift busted her feelings in an open letter to Apple. The singer secretly raged over the non-cooperative behavior of Apple to not pay artists for their services in the free trial period. However, earlier this day Eddy Cue, Apple’s Senior Vice President of Internet Software and Services responded to Taylor Swifts letter exclaiming that label, artists and publishers will be paid for their services even in the free trial period.

Taylor Swift’s public criticism on Apple’s decision to not pay artists and other such associates for the free trial period of Apple’s premium music streaming service. Henceforth, Eddy Cue announced the news on Twitter as part of their policy change. However, the original policy according to Taylor Swift was somewhat different. Roll down for in depth details.

”Apple Will Always Make Sure That Artists Are Paid”

Taylor Swift defined the reasons for her revolt against Apple on a tumblr post where she also explained the reason for withholding her latest album, 1989 from Apple Music’s free trial period. She stated, “Thankfully I am on my fifth album and can support myself, my band, crew, and entire management team by playing live shows. This is about the new artist or band that has just released their first single and will not be paid for its success.”

However, before Cue announced the reverse course by Apple, the reason for not paying the artists was because they would be compensated by higher percentage pay than Apple Music’s rival, Spotify. Here you have the Twitter posts by Eddy Cue on the following matter and Taylor Swift’s reply to the concern.

We hear you @taylorswift13 and indie artists. Love, Apple

I am elated and relieved. Thank you for your words of support today. They listened to us.

Apple seems to be a lot concerned about the artists, labels and publishers, maybe its a sensitive time before launch and Apple does not want any gigantic stumble in the way. Apple will surely come up with a letter of its own in the coming days to justify full details over the issue. Even though Apple has agreed to the terms, we are still unsure over if Taylor Swift will remain being a part of the program. Apple Music will debut on 30th June and more details will be unveiled over the situation. As for now, let us know your thoughts in the comments.
