Taylor Swift and Apple Music are getting back together! The “Style” singer, 25, took to Twitter on Thursday, June 25, to announce that she was officially placing her newest album, 1989, on the streaming service.

This news comes after Swift penned an open letter to the company earlier in the month, advocating in favor of independent artists, who originally weren’t being paid during a three-month trial period. 

“I find it to be shocking, disappointing, and completely unlike this historically progressive and generous company,” Swift wrote in her letter. 

As a result, Apple’s senior vice president, Eddy Cue, took to Twitter to announce that the company was revising its policy. 

“Apple will always make sure that artist are paid,” he tweeted at the time. “#AppleMusic will pay artist for streaming, even during customer’s free trial period. We hear you @taylorswift13 and indie artists. Love, Apple.”
