Apple Music, a new music streaming service, launches today. Now, the company has a two front attack on the music industry with iTunes—where customers can buy individual songs or albums—and Apple Music—where customers pay a subscription for music streaming.
One notable feature of the new app that sets it apart from competitor Spotify is Beats 1, an Apple radio station hosted by DJ Zane Lowe.
Lowe left BBC1 in March to pursue his job with the new radio station. Along with playing music, the DJ will interview huge music stars, kicking off with Eminem tomorrow. Zane is a pro with this, having interviewed countless stars on his previous radio show including Eminem and Kanye Westwhich was an unforgettable and highly emotional spectacle.
Pharrell Williams, Justin Timberlake and Dr. Dre are also scheduled to interview on Beats 1.
At 9 a.m. today the station inaugurated with Spring King‘s “City,” which was proceeded by Beck‘s “Dreams” and Jamie xx’s “In Color.”
