Taylor Swift’s 1989 Will Be On Apple Music

We wrote earlier this week about how Taylor Swift’s open letter to Apple changed their minds about artist compensation for their new streaming service, Apple Music. Well, now it seems that the pop star is showing her support for the policy change by allowing her into its library. She tweeted: “After the events of this week, I’ve decided to put 1989 on Apple Music…and happily so.”

In a series of tweets, she reassured her fans that this was not some sort of exclusive deal with Apple Music, but “the first time it’s felt right in my gut to stream my album.”

Perhaps it feels right because soon after Apple’s change of heart, indie labels began to sign on to the streaming service. According to Rolling Stone, Beggars Group, in addition to other indie labels and digital rights organization Merlin Network agreed to terms with Apple on Wednesday. Eddy Cue, Apple’s Senior President told Rolling Stone: “We wanted for it to be the right thing for the artists.”
