Following a bit of a spat with Apple over not paying royalties during its three-month trial program for its upcoming streaming service (which was later resolved), the pop singer announced that she is putting her latest album -- the fifth album by the 25-year singer -- on Apple's service.
After the events of this week, I've decided to put 1989 on Apple Music...and happily so.— Taylor Swift (@taylorswift13) June 25, 2015
In case you're wondering if this is some exclusive deal like you've seen Apple do with other artists, it's not.

This is simply the first time it's felt right in my gut to stream my album. Thank you, Apple, for your change of heart.— Taylor Swift (@taylorswift13) June 25, 2015
On Sunday, Swift penned a blog post on Tumblr explaining why she was upset with Apple, who originally was not going to pay artists for the three months when users were using the service for free.
After the trial period, Apple Music will cost users $9.99 a month, and there is also a family plan that lets six family members use the plan for $14.99 a month.
