Apple’s music streaming service will also be integrated with the iOS music app, a curated playlists and special music collections aggregated by top artists.

The new music streaming service is coming into market where Spotify’s shadow has grown tall since its Europe expansion in 2011 and where JayZ Tidal is struggling for figures.
