Apple Music, Spotify, Google Play, Deezer, Rdio, Rhapsody, Amazon Prime. All seven and we’ll watch them fall. There are actually more than seven streaming music services, however, regardless of the number, none of them are able to stream music by the artist currently known as Prince.
On the heels of releasing a new track, HARDROCKLOVER, on SoundCloud, the Purple One has requested that, with the exception of Jay-Z-backed Tidal, all streaming music services should take down his music. That won’t be a problem for Apple Music, because he never gave the burgeoning service permission to stream his collection in the first place.
