Taylor stated in the open letter that the plan was unfair and, despite the fact that the company had the money to cover the cost, all writers, producers or artists wouldn’t be paid for those three months.

The singer said, describing Apple as one of her best partners in selling the music, that she found it shocking and disappointing adding it was completely unlike that generous and historically progressive company.

These are not the complaints of a spoiled, petulant child. These are the echoed sentiments of every artist, writer and producer in my social circles who are afraid to speak up publicly because we admire and respect Apple so much

– stated Swift and continued:

We know how astronomically successful Apple has been and we know that this incredible company has the money to pay artists, writers and producers for the 3 month trial period – even if it is free for the fans trying it out.

Three months is a long time to go unpaid, and it is unfair to ask anyone to work for nothing

In the end of her letter she asked Apple to change its unfair policy and then she would reinstate her album 1989, which became one of the biggest-selling albums during the past year, on the Apple Music.

We don’t ask you for free iPhones. Please don’t ask us to provide you with our music for no compensation

– stated Taylor Swift.

In spite of that argue, the rest of Taylor Swift’s music will be available on Apple Music after its launching on 30 June, costing $9.99 per month for one person and $14.99 for families in the USA.
