Just days after giving Apple a Swift kick in the arseoverchincing her fellow music industry artists, pop princess Taylor Swifthas given the company the rights to stream her album, 1989, on its soon-to-be-launched streaming service.
"I've decided to put '1989' on Apple Music...and happily so," Swift tweeted.
Less than a week ago, she was threatening to pull the her mega-successful album from Apple when the company announced it would offer its service fior free for tthe first three months and NOT pay artists during that period.
Swift was like that was totally uncool, so she went all Spotify on Apple.
“I find it to be shocking, disappointing, and completely unlike this historically progressive and generous company,” Swift said on her social media channels.“We don’t ask you for free iPhones.”
Apple quickly changed its mind. Swift pulled her entire catalog off Spotify last year over compensation issues.
"This is simply the first time it's felt right in my gut to stream my album," Swift said of her big move with Apple."Thank you, Apple, for your change of heart."

In case you're wondering if this is some exclusive deal like you've seen Apple do with other artists, it's not.— Taylor Swift (@taylorswift13) June 25, 2015
