Taylor Swift: Why '1989' won't be on Apple Music

Taylor Swift is withholding her album "1989" from Apple's streaming service because she says the company is unfairly withholding royalties from artists.

Swift's issue is the three-month free trial period Apple is promoting. 

"Apple Music will not be paying writers, producers, or artists for those three months," she wrote. "I find it to be shocking, disappointing, and completely unlike this historically progressive and generous company."

Stashed in: Apple, Music, Monetization, @taylorswift13, Beatles!, Beyonce!, @jayz, Spotify, Metallica!

If you buy 1989 on iTunes it will be available on Apple Music. 

Thanks Taylor Swift!

Taylor Swift 1989 won t be on Apple Music

SEE: It doesn't matter that Taylor Swift and other famous musicians won't be part of Apple's new music service

"And it's not just Taylor. A lot of big-name artists like Metallica, Def Leppard, The Beatles, Jay Z, and Beyoncé all have odd relationships with the various music-streaming services out there."
