Sunday morning, Taylor Swift posted an open letter on Tumblr explaining her decision to hold back 1989 from Apple Music. It mainly called into question Apple’s decision to not pay artists during the introductory 3three-month free trial period, a decision that Swift noted was for other artists and not for herself.

It seems Swift did something right and just might have the power to change the industry. Eddy Cue, Apple’s Senior Vice President of Internet Software and Services, announced overnight that Apple has changed its course — it will pay artists “even during customer’s free trial period.”
