Kesha‘s performance at the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday is back on.

After a dramatic week that saw the singer’s slated performance pulled because of her ongoing legal battle with Kemosabe and producer Dr. Luke, the show’s production company dick clark productions confirms to PEOPLE the star can once again take the stage.

“We are pleased that Kesha and Kemosabe Records have reached an agreement and very much look forward to having Kesha perform on the Billboard Music Awards this Sunday night on ABC,” DCP says in a statement.

According to Kemosabe, “Kesha’s performance …was always approved, in good faith” and was “only suspended when Kemosabe learned Kesha was to use the performance as a platform to discuss the litigation,” the label tells PEOPLE in a statement.

The recording label claims approval was restored after the singer, her representatives and dick clark productions assured them “that neither Kesha nor her supporters will use the performance as such a platform.”

“Good work animals. Looks like our voices can be heard after all,” Kesha Instagrammed Thursday afternoon.

On Tuesday, a source told PEOPLE Kesha had written Dr. Luke a letter telling him the “performance wasn’t about him at all,” but that the producer “still wouldn’t allow her to perform” after a full day of consideration. A source close to Dr. Luke called the letter “an urban myth.”

On Wednesday, Kesha performed her planned song, a cover of Bob Dylan’s “It Ain’t Me, Babe,” at Ben Folds’ Los Angeles concert.

The singer is currently embroiled in a legal battle with her former producer, whom she claims sexually abused her for years. Dr. Luke has continually denied her allegations, and a a New York Court dismissed most of the charges in her case against him.

The Billboard Music Awards airs Sunday at 8 p.m. on ABC.
