Apparently, Apple Music just couldn’t shake off Taylor Swift’s letter.
The music giant announced late Sunday night that it will pay its artists during Apple Music’s free three-month trial period, less than 24 hours after Swift wrote an open letter criticizing the 90-day practice.

Under the original plan, Apple would not compensate any artists, producers, or songwriters during this period… As announced tonight by Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet Software and Services, artists will indeed be compensated during this three-month period, even if Apple is not charging users.”
Well hot damn, Tay Tay. Here is Cue’s announcement, which was made via Twitter:
