Apple to Automatically Install Beats Music App Onto All iPhones

Facebook Twitter Email

It appears Apple will be forcing more content on all iPhones this Spring, as the consumer electronics giant plans on releasing a new iOS update that will automatically install the Beats Music app onto all iPhone devices according to CNET. If you recall Beats Electronics and Music was bought by Apple in May for $3 billion and in order to capitalize on the investment, it appears the company will have to push the subscription-based music streaming service to all iPhone customers in order to compete with the current music streaming market leader, Spotify. As it stands, Beats Music has about 110,000 subscribers, while Spotify sits on a whopping 10 million subscribers, way ahead. Do you think this power move from Apple will cut lessen the gap or upset more customers? Leave thoughts below. Read the rest of this page »

Jennifer Lawrence

Katniss Everdeen’s sorrowful song, “The Hanging Tree,” from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1, is now streaming online. Jennifer Lawrence, who plays Everdeen in the movies, sang the tune, which composer James Newton arranged with the Lumineers, according to Huffington Post. The track at first features Lawrence’s voice singing the haunting melody a cappella until orchestral strings and a chorus of equally morose souls sing it along with her. It will be included on the score album for the movie (not Lorde‘s pop-song soundtrack), due out November 24th. Read the rest of this page »

Wale – The Followers

Facebook Twitter Email

If you feel like Wale has been missing for a minute, you should definitely see him now. If not on the cover of Complex with Jerry Seinfeld or announcing his major headlining tour, then you’ll see him here in a newly dropped video for his track “The Followers.” The song itself was debuted earlier this year and is featured on Nas’ upcoming Mass Appeal venture. The video is a pleasant distraction to hold us over until his 2015 release The Album about Nothing. The Jon J and Shaun Ross directed video sees random people spilling off Wale’s verses while performing their rudimentary daily tasks. Don’t miss the cut at 1:23 to an episode of Seinfeld. Convenient timing, no? Check out the visual above. Read the rest of this page »
