You finally have a place to stream 1989.

Soon after singlehandedly taking on Apple's new streaming policies and winning, Taylor Swift has announced that her latest album will be available on the about-to-debut Apple Music.

It's a coup for the computing giant's new service, as Swift has pulled all her music from competitor Spotify, arguing that it doesn't pay artists enough for their labor.

After the events of this week, I've decided to put 1989 on Apple Music...and happily so.

According to a follow-up tweet from Apple Senior Vice President Eddy Cue, '1989' will be available on Apple Music starting June 30.

See you on #AppleMusic on June 30th!
