Taylor Swift puts entire 1989 album on Apple Music

Apple on Monday bowed to pressure from Swift and some independent music groups and labels after its decision not to pay artists created a furore in the music community.

"After the events of this week, I've decided to put 1989 on Apple Music ... and happily so," Swift tweeted on Thursday.

This was not the Grammy-award winning artist's first fight with music streaming services.
