Taylor Swift's music has returned to TikTok after an ongoing dispute with her music distributor Universal Music Group over royalties.

The return of her songs to the popular social platform comes as she releases her latest and highly anticipated album, The Tortured Poets Department, next week. 

Music by Universal artists was removed from every TikTok video with a notice saying it was removed due to copyright infringement.

Universal Music Group said at the time that TikTok proposed to pay its artists and songwriters "a fraction of what similarly established major social platforms pay."

"At the end of the day, TikTok is trying to build a music-based business without paying fair value for the music," it said in a statement.

However, Universal said that TikTok accounts for only about 1% of its total revenue.

It's unclear what conditions have been met after Swift's return to TikTok. Universal Music Group, TikTok and Taylor Swift's spokesperson did not respond to a request for comment. Music by other Universal artists is not yet listed on the platform./ CNA
