Taylor Swift returns to pitch Apple Music in the streamer's latest television ad
But Apple caved after Swift posted an open letter to the company, and the singer decided to allow Apple to stream her record. No longer in the Apple doghouse (if she ever really was), Swift's second commercial for Apple Music has been released. In the spot, Swift is thumbing through the "Getting Ready to Go Out" category. Choosing from the tunes in the "Jukebox Hits: 00s Alternative Rock" playlist, she selects Jimmy Eat World's song The Middle, a song she used to listen to in middle school. In the spot, Swift lip syncs to the number as she prepares for a hot night out.
At last count, Apple Music has 11-million paid subscribers versus 20 million for Spotify. To be fair, the latter also has 55 million subscribers to its free ad-based tier of service. Apple doesn't offer an ad-supported level of service, but does allow users to have a one-time three-month free trial. After that, a one-month subscription is $9.99 while a family of six can subscribe for $14.99.
