Taylor Swift pretty much just made Apple her b**ch. Over the weekend, Tay wrote them an open letter about their new music sharing platform, and how it comes with an unfair artist pay policy. She told them that her tunes would not be available to stream, unless they switched things up. Now it seems Taylor has prompted them to do just that. The power of T-Swift, you say? You bet!

In her Tumblr post, titled "To Apple, Love Taylor," Tay added that the "astronomically successful Apple" has more than enough money to pay artists less fortunate than her. The company is currently worth $742 billion!

"I say to Apple with all due respect, it's not too late to change this policy and change the minds of those in the music industry who will be deeply and gravely affected by this," she concluded. "We don't ask you for free iPhones. Please don't ask us to provide you with our music for no compensation."

It didn't take long for Apple to respond. In a series of tweets, Eddy Cue, Apple's senior vice president of Internet software and services, apologized for the issue, and promised to reverse his company's policy. Taylor was quick to chime in on the change shortly after her show in Amsterdam. No, they listened to you, Tay. Do your thing, girl. #TaylorForPresident
