Dr. Dre To Launch Beats Music To Compete With Spotify


Beats Music will launch in January, according to Beats Music CEO Ian Rogers.

Rogers announced the January launch on his blog Wednesday, writing:

“Beats Music is real. We’re in an internal, private beta with people who know and love music (including a few of my personal heroes). We’re providing a few artists and other influencers access to familiarize them with the service and get their early feedback. We’re making improvements based on that feedback. We can’t wait to share it with the world, and are set to launch in the US in January.”

Beats Music will have some stiff competiton with Spotify, Rhapsofy and Rdio. The company did not give out an exact date the new streaming service will be available  but users can now pre-register their username on Beatsmusic.com.
