Taylor Swift's album 1989 is officially coming to Apple Music!

After persuading Apple to pay artists and record labels for streaming their music during the 90-day free trial period, the 25-year-old "Shake It Off" singer announced earlier today that she will allow Apple Music to stream her hugely successful album.

"After the events of this week, I've decided to put 1989 on Apple Music...and happily so," the Grammy winner tweeted Thursday before adding, "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."

The pop star also clarified, "In case you're wondering if this is some exclusive deal like you've seen Apple do with other artists, it's not."

Go, T.Swift!

Apple's senior vice president of Internet services and software Eddy Cue announced earlier this week that the company will pay artists. "We hear you @taylorswift13 and indie artists. Love, Apple," Cue tweeted in response to Swift's lengthy letter convincing Apple Music to pay artists.He added in a magazing interview, "When I woke up this morning and saw what Taylor had written, it really solidified that we needed to make a change. And so that's why we decide we will now pay artists during the trial period."

Swift responded with, "I am elated and relieved. Thank you for your words of support today. They listened to us."

Swift also got a shout-out from boyfriend Calvin Harris over the victory. "I just played a gig inside a giant owl and my girl just changed the entire music industry what a day," he tweeted.
