Lost Frequencies – Are You With Me (Official Music Video)
In 2014, Belgian DJ and producer Lost Frequencies took the music and the refrain from the song, speeding up the track and releasing it in October 2014 as a remix. The song reached number one on Belgium’s Ultratop Flanders chart and peaked at number two on Belgium’s Wallonia francophone chart. In July 2015, the single topped the charts in the United Kingdom, where it holds the distinction of having the shortest reign at the top of the UK Singles Chart of any single for 46 years due to the following chart being the first to be released on a Friday rather than a Sunday (before August 1969, this had occurred on a Wednesday), when it was replaced by David Zowie’s “House Every Weekend”. The song also topped the charts in other countries, including Germany, Ireland, Switzerland, Australia and Austria.
Taylor Swift Scolded Apple Music for Not Paying Artists, and Apple Caved
Earlier this month, Apple announced Apple Music, a streaming service that would cost $9.99 a month after a three-month free trial. But during that introductory period, artists, writers, and producers would NOT be paid.
TAYLOR SWIFT didn’t like that. She announced that her new album “1989” wouldn’t be on the service, and scolded Apple in an “open letter” on her website.
She said, quote, “I find it to be shocking, disappointing, and completely unlike this historically progressive and generous company . . . three months is a long time to go unpaid, and it is unfair to ask anyone to work for nothing.
“We don’t ask you for free iPhones. Please don’t ask us to provide you with our music for no compensation.” She said she isn’t speaking up as a, quote, “spoiled, petulant child,” but for the smaller artists who are struggling to make ends meet.
And last night, someone from Apple said they’d changed their minds . . . Tweeting, quote, “Apple Music WILL pay artists for streaming, even during customers’ free trial period. We hear you Taylor and indie artists. Love, Apple.”
(Taylor’s whole letter is on her Tumblr page, here. It’s pretty well-written, although she seems careful not to attack Apple TOO viciously, since she apparently likes that their goal is for paid streaming.)
