We may never know if there were backroom negotiations, payments were made (she insists not) or if Taylor Swift just liked how Apple reversed course after her open letter and decided to pay some royalties during their 90 day free trials. Whatever the reason...

After the events of this week, I've decided to put 1989 on Apple Music...and happily so.— Taylor Swift (@taylorswift13) June 25, 2015
