SWIFT TO STREAM 1989 ON APPLE MUSIC
Taylor Swift said on Thursday she would put her album 1989 on Apple Music, days after Apple did an about-face, agreeing to pay artists during a free trial of its new streaming music service. Apple on Monday bowed to pressure from Swift and independent music groups and labels after its decision of not paying artists created a furore. Swift said her decision was not because of any exclusive deal between her and Apple.
