Taylor Swift’s “1989” will stream on Apple Music, after a week of struggles between Swift and Apple’s new music service. According to USA Today, Swift announced on Thursday that she’s changed her mind about Apple Music and that her latest album, “1989,” is cleared for landing at the music service.

“After the events of this week, I’ve decided to put 1989 on Apple Music…and happily so” the singer wrote on Twitter. “In case you’re wondering if this is some exclusive deal like you’ve seen Apple do with other artists, it’s not.”

It’s a pretty quick turnaround, considering how adamantly anti-Apple Swift has been in the last week. The battle between Swift and Apple first began in a post on Swift’s Tumblr. In the post, titled “To Apple, Love Taylor,” the singer tore into Apple over a policy in their new streaming service. Apple was offering a free three-month trial to anyone who signed up for Apple Music… but it turns out that musicians would not be paid royalties during that three month period.

“Three months is a long time to go unpaid, and it is unfair to ask anyone to work for nothing,” Taylor argued in her statement. “I say this with love, reverence, and admiration for everything else Apple has done. I hope that soon I can join them in the progression towards a streaming model that seems fair to those who create this music. I think this could be the platform that gets it right.”

Incredibly, according to Yahoo, Apple folded on the policy just 17 hours later. Apple exec Eddy Cue announced the service would pay royalties to artists during those many three-month trial periods.

Cue’s response to Taylor’s latest “1989” announcement? “See you on #AppleMusic on June 30!”

Are you glad “1989” will be on Apple Music?
