Taylor Swift and The Beatles Album Will not Available on Apple Music
On last Apple WWDC 2015, Apple has announced about Apple Music which will be launched on June 30th 2015. But sadly, when Apple Music launches, Platinum-selling pop megastar Taylor Swift’s Album 1989 won’t be there.
Representatives for both Swift’s label Big Machine Records and Apple confirmed that Taylor Swift’s 1989, which has not been released to any streaming services, will not be available at launch on Apple Music either, as reported by BuzzFeed News.
The pop icon removed her entire back catalog from Spotify, the Swedish company’s streaming service last year. She’s been outspoken about her disapproval for Spotify, claiming that it doesn’t pay artists fairly.

Taylor Swift maintains that free music is devaluing her art form, and Swift’s label Big Machine records says that it has still has no plans to release 1989 on any streaming service in the near future. However, Swift’s back catalog will be available on Apple Music.
Same case but different reason, The Beatles’s album will also not available on Apple Music. According to Verge, seems like Apple hasn’t convinced The Beatles to let people stream their music. Apple and The Beatles share an interesting history; for years the tech company and the band’s Apple Corps record label sparred over trademark conflicts.
Considering The Beatles are one of the most influential, popular, and iconic music groups to walk on the earth, it’s not entirely surprising that it’s taking a little longer to feature in streaming service while terms and conditions are ironed out.
