Taylor Swift has confirmed on Twitter that she will be streaming her top-selling album "1989" on Apple Music. 

Earlier, she said that she did not want to stream "1989" on Apple Music because she felt that it was unfair to artists and labels that Apple would not be paying them a single cent for any music streamed during the free three month trial period.

Apple very quickly announced that it would reverse its stance and agreed that it should pay even if users were on the free three month trial.

This led to yesterday's mega announcement that Apple has struck deal with major indie labels and rights holders Beggars Group and Merlin, which could potentially bring 20,000 indie labels and distributors onboard the service.

According to Swift, this is not going to be an exclusive deal, instead she felt that this is simply the first time she "felt right" to stream her album. You can see her Twitter posts below, as well as Eddy Cue's response - Eddy is Apple's SVP for Internet Software and Services).
