Other artists, such as Ariana Grande, Camila Cabello and Rihanna, were also affected.

At the time, Universal Music Group said that TikTok only wanted to pay its artists "a fraction of the rate that similarly situated major social platforms pay.".

Ultimately TikTok is trying to build a music-based business, without paying fair value for the music, Universal Music Group, via statement.

The music distributor was also concerned with the fact that TikTok allows AI-generated recordings on its platform... ... and is creating tools to "enable, promote and encourage" music creation with artificial intelligence.

Universal Music Group believes that this will "massively dilute the royalty pool for human artists.".

But as of April 11, Swift's music is back on TikTok, CNN reports.

.

The development comes ahead of the release of her newest album, 'The Tortured Poets Department,' on April 19.

However, Universal Music Group's other artists are still not present on TikTok.

It's not clear what terms were met between TikTok, Universal Music Group and Swift to return her music to the platform
