For many users, the email is signed by the Apple Music team, which would mean that the recipients of the email are artists with content on Apple Music. For reference, producers, artists, writers and more use iTunes Connect to distribute their content across Apple’s platforms.
Looks like I became a musician overnight—and iTunes Connect knew first. 😜 Judging by the headers, the email was sent from Apple’s servers.

“Once your bank details are corrected, it may take up to two payment cycles for your payment to be sent. If you have any questions, contact us,” the email continued. For users who don’t use iTunes Connect, it’s probably safe to just ignore the email.
