Amazon Prime Music expands its free streaming catalog by “hundreds of thousands” of tracks
Amazon announced today that it has added hundreds of thousands of songs to the recently launched Prime Music streaming service, along with hundreds of new Prime Playlists.
According to its press release:
The newly-added selection includes songs from artists new to the Prime Music catalog, as well as additional tracks from artists already in the Prime Music catalog, such as David Guetta, Al Green, Miles Davis, Kendrick Lamar, Linkin Park, Shakira, Deadmau5, Ella Fitzgerald, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Neil Young, DJ Snake & Lil Jon, Young the Giant, A$AP Rocky, Elvis, Oasis, Kacey Musgraves, Ray Charles, Panic! at the Disco, Wyclef Jean, Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, Skrillex, John Coltrane and many more.
While not giving any specific numbers on subscribers, Amazon went on to say that its new music service “has far exceeded our expectations.” At launch, there were over a million songs available to stream, which pales in comparison to giants like Spotify and Google Play Music All Access.
Amazon Prime itself has tens of millions of subscribers, but its unknown how many of them take advantage of the music service. Are you one of them?[Amazon]
