Taylor Swift has removed her new album from Apple Music. She doesn't want Apple to give her music away for free. Apple Music is a streaming service. It has a free, three-month trial. Swift wants Apple to pay artists for this. She said: "We don't ask…for free iPhones. Please don't ask us to [give you] our music for [free]."

Swift wrote: "Apple Music will not be paying…artists for those three months." She is shocked and disappointed. She said Apple was an incredible company. She said it was rich, successful and had the money to pay artists. She added: "Three months is a long time to go unpaid, and it is unfair to ask anyone to work for nothing."
