APPLE OFFERS DRAKE $19 MILLION TO JOIN BEATS

Apple is doing everything it can to be the next big thing.

Apple would do whatever it takes to be better than 'Spotify', 'Tidal' and everyone else.  After all this is the company that fixed the price of ebooks.  Wouldn't surprise if they did the same thing.  It is rumor that the Department of Justice is looking at Apple if they even make an attempt for this to happen.

Anyway Sources close to Apple state that Apple is approaching 'Drake', 'Davi Guetta', 'Pharell' and many others to join the Beats music streaming that may launch this month at Apple's WWDC. Apple is offering the trio $20 million to be guest DJ's on the service and to launch other projects with Apple.
Here is what a source is reporting:

The tech giant wants to offer a three-month free trial period for its $10-a-month subscription service to get customers to sample its new offering. So far so good, but it also wants the labels to give it rights for free during that time.
The laughable request from the most valuable brand on the planet comes at a time when music buyers might opt to ditch the downloads in order to try a new free offering, creating a potential quarterly revenue shortfall for rights owners.
As for music publishers, we hear Apple wanted to offer lyrics as part of Apple Music, but didn’t want to pay extra.
Apple’s plans appear aimed at taking the best of Pandora, Spotify and YouTube and blending it into something that will outgun them all. There are plans for streaming music (and video), artists’ pages, a YouTube-style post-it-yourself destination called Apple Connect and a well-documented reboot of iTunes Radio.
Whether all of this will coalesce and result in a host of hot stars on stage with Apple CEO Tim Cook on June 8 will depend on who blinks first.
