Apple V.S Spotify: 5 Differences You Might Have Not Known

Do you remember the time Spotify just dropped in South Africa, local celebs from all over Africa were snapshotting it, screen-grabbing it and live streaming it! Forgetting about the longest living online music streamer being Apple Music.

Apple V.S Spotify: 5 Differences You Might Of Not KnownSource by: https://www.youredm.com

#Watch Own The Block Season Two / S2 here

Well, now that we have 2 top-rated music streaming services… we thought let’s weigh their differences and see who’s really in the lead here.

The #OwnTheBlock team who are leaders in street-rap battles, music business, and entertainment across the Southern hemisphere have listed a few key differences that we think you should know, take a look:

1. Subscriptions:
Spotify offers a full-on free sign-up on their mobile App and website, where Apple Music allows a 3-month free trial only!

2. User Experience:
Apple Music starts to prompt their users by asking them to select genre-types and artists that they might be interested in, where Spotify recommends artists and music, which is a bonus for the user and if its an upcoming artist, while, then its a bonus for the artist.

3. User Interface
Both look pretty cool — & come across as being the main hubs for finding new artists, music, playlists, videos, and concert shows from around the world.

but there is 1 thing that stands out when looking at the Apple Music App and that is the saving and downloading of music content, where Spotify makes this a little bit more complicated when browsing its artist’s pages than being straight to the point such as Apple music.

Anyways, both Apps are pretty cool and we recommend them, imagine a world of songs and entertainment at your fingertips!

WATCH Jay Z says Kanye “Crossed the Line” in Recent Interview

Jay-Z discussed his Kanye West feud, the recording of 4:44, the “Elevator Video” and his Anti-Defamation League–angering “The Story of O.J.” lyric in a candid, hour-long Tidal video interview, the first of two instalments where the rapper sat down with Rap Radar’s Elliott Wilson and Brian “B.Dot” Miller.
WATCH Jay Z says Kanye “Crossed the Line” in Recent Interview
During the interview, Jay-Z opened up about his rumoured feud with Kanye West where he said, “It’s not even about Kanye, it really isn’t,” Jay Z said of the track ‘Kill Jay Z’. “His name is there, just because it’s just the truth of what happened. But the whole point is “You got hurt because this person was talking about you on a stage. But what really hurt me was, you can’t bring my kids and my wife into it. Kanye’s my little brother. He’s talked about me 100 times. He made a song called ‘Big Brother. We’ve gotten past bigger issues. But you brought my family into it, now it’s a problem with me. That’s a real, real problem. And he knows it’s a problem.”
Jay-Z added, “He knows that he crossed the line. I know him. He knows. I know he knows, because we’ve never let this much space go between one of our disagreements, and we’ve had many, because that’s who we are. That’s what I like about him. He’s an honest person, he’s open and he’ll say things and he’s wrong a lot of times and he’ll confront it.”
