Apple Music is finally going to be launched tomorrow and the company has lined up some exclusive content to bring in new subscribers. Pharrell is launching his new single tomorrow as an Apple Music exclusive, while the company has managed to convince Taylor Swift to put her recent album 1989 on its music streaming service, making Apple Music the first digital streaming home for this album. That’s not all that Apple has to offer, Dr. Dre’s infamous 1992 LP The Chronic is going to make its digital debut after all these years on Apple Music.
Rolling Stone reports that Dr. Dre’s The Chronic is going to be available for streaming on Apple Music when the service goes live tomorrow. It’s interesting to note that this is the first time this LP has been made available to any music streaming service, it wasn’t even put on Dre’s own Beats Music service which was launched in 2014 and later acquired by Apple.
It obviously makes perfect sense for Dre to put this album on Apple Music given that he’s closely associated with Apple’s music efforts now, perhaps he feels comfortable enough with putting this album on the new service than he did with the idea of bringing it to Beats Music.
Apple Music is going to go live tomorrow after the iOS 8.4 update is released for all compatible devices to lay the groundwork for this music streaming service.
