Now that Taylor Swift reigns over the music industry, using her powers for good to ensure that any artist whose music gets streamed during Apple Music's three-month trial period will get paid, she wants to get paid, too. Tay just announced that for the first time ever, you'll be able to stream her chart-smashing 1989 online via Apple Music:
After the events of this week, I've decided to put 1989 on Apple Music...and happily so.— Taylor Swift (@taylorswift13) June 25, 2015
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
This is simply the first time it's felt right in my gut to stream my album. Thank you, Apple, for your change of heart.— Taylor Swift (@taylorswift13) June 25, 2015
The service will go live June 30, with Tay, indie labels, and a bunch of new radio shows (including ones from Drake, Pharrell, Elton John, St. Vincent, Jaden Smith, and more). Did Apple Music just win the streaming wars? We're looking at you, Tidal and Spotify.
