No more bad blood: Taylor Swift returns to music streaming services

Good news for Taylor Swift fans-- the pop superstar is bringing her tunes to all music streaming platforms at midnight on Friday morning. 

The star had previously pulled her music from streaming service Spotify, publicly protesting the way the service compensated artists in an op-ed published in the Wall Street Journal:

"Music is art, and art is important and rare. Important, rare things are valuable. Valuable things should be paid for. It's my opinion that music should not be free, and my prediction is that individual artists and their labels will someday decide what an album's price point is."

Swift allowed Apple Music to feature her music, but only after successfully petitioning for a change in the service's pay structure. 

Swift's management team announced on social media Thursday evening that the singer will bring her entire collection back online in honor of her album 1989 selling over 10 million albums and earning the Recording Industry Association of America's "100 Million Song" certification. 

The prestigious certification recognizes artists who have sold 100 million song units. 

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