The open letter issued Apple by biggest pop star in the world right now, Taylor Swift to change their controversial policy of not paying royalties to artists during the free three month trial service for their new streaming service Apple Music.

Yesterday, two weeks after Apple released its new paid streaming service, Swift posted on Tumblr, explaining why she’s withholding her most recent album, 1989, from the platform.

Taylor's letter reads I’m sure you are aware that Apple Music will be offering a free 3 month trial to anyone who signs up for the service. I’m not sure you know that Apple Music will not be paying writers, producers, or artists for those three months.

She also added. 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. We simply do not respect this particular call.”

Taylor Swift, seen onstage in Cologne, Germany, during "The 1989 World Tour," slammed Apple's plan not to pay artists, writers or producers during Apple Music's free trial period and pulled her fifth studio album from the music-streaming service .

Apple now plans to pay artists during the three-month trial period of Apple Music after the “Shake It Off” singer raised a squawk and pulled her multiplatinum album “1989” from the service.
