Taylor Swift returns to Spotify, just in time for your weekend

Only Apple Music was allowed to stream the music when it made a decision to pay royalties to artists during a free three-month trial.

A representative for Swift told Billboard her songs would be available on Tidal, Amazon and Pandora.

This meant that other streaming platforms such as Spotify were missing out, but that is no longer the case.

In 2014, the Shake It Off singer pulled her music from Spotify, where she was one of the service's most popular artists, after bemoaning that artists receive a tiny royalty per song play.

"Taylor wants to thank her fans by making her entire back catalog available to all streaming services, tonight at midnight" they said.

Fans have taken to Twitter to praise the new album, which hit number one on iTunes just 10 minutes after its release.

Swift adding her music to Spotify is also noteworthy because she and the music platform had a public dispute about how much they were paying her for streaming her music.

The 32-year-old pop star explained in an interview with NME published Friday why she addressed her longtime feud with Swift on "Carpool Karaoke" with James Corden.

"Honestly, it's really like she started it and it's time for her to finish it", she said. Especially when someone tries to assassinate my character with little girls [their respective fan groups].

Although Taylor acknowledged the move would not make a huge difference to her own financial wellbeing, she insisted her actions were not those of "a spoiled, petulant child". From there, the popcorn-eating masses got to enjoy lots of Twitter shade and Swift's "Bad Blood", which is about the whole beef. "I think there should be an inherent value placed on art", she told TIME. The We Belong Together singer sensationally returned to Spotify in the early hours of 9 June - coincidentally, the same day Perry released her new album Witness.
