Apple Music and the number one source for lyrics, Genius, has announced a major partnership that will see both companies team together for what will be a very fruitful relationship. Starting today, Apple Music users will have Genius lyrics for “thousands of songs” allowing them to read while they listen. On the flip side, Genius now has Apple Music as their official music player on the site.
“Being able to read lyrics and annotations on Genius while you listen along on Apple Music is a dream Genius experience,” Ben Gross, Genius’s Chief Strategy Officer said in the official press release. “We’re proud to make Apple Music our official music player, and we’re doubly excited to bring Genius lyrics to their amazing platform.”
The move is a big win for Apple Music competing against other big streaming services such as TIdal and Apple Music.
