Holiday music exclusive battle: Apple & Eminem vs. Tidal & Lil Wayne
While many in the US are relaxing for the July 4th holiday, the folks at Apple Music and Tidal are hard at work trying to push their respective subscription music services. Apple has already announced plans for a Dr. Dre radio show on Beats 1 that will debut Saturday night, after airing shows hosted by artists Q-Tip and Run the Jewels on Friday. Just to add on, Apple Music revealed it nabbed the exclusive for Eminem’s “music film” Phenomenal. Not to be outdone, Tidal came through with a surprise exclusive drop of Lil Wayne’s new album, FWA, aka the Free Weezy Album. Whether or not those match your personal taste, it’s evident both are gunning hard for the current subscription streaming leader, Spotify, to power the playlist at your barbecue this weekend. As far as Spotify and the rest, well, at least they have AC/DC too.
