Taylor Swift's "1989" album will be available to stream on Apple Music when the service launches on June 30. The Grammy award winning singer made the announcement on Twitter on Thursday.

The "event of this week" to which she's referring is Apple's decision to pay royalties to artists during the three month free trial of Apple Music. Originally, Apple wasn't going to pay musicians during the first 90 days, but it changed its mine after Swift published a letter explaining that she was withholding her critically acclaimed album from the service because of this policy.

Acquiring Swift's critically acclaimed album is a big deal for Apple because it currently can't be streamed anywhere else—not on Spotify or Tidal. That being said, Swift made it clear on Twitter that this wasn't an exclusive deal with Apple.
