Apple Music ads appear worldwide as Billboard adds Apple Music to charts

“Apple has kicked off a worldwide advertising campaign for its new streaming music service, with advertisements showing up in various cities like San Francisco, Tokyo, Toronto, Los Angeles, and Mexico City,” Juli Clover reports for MacRumors.

“The banners mimic images that have been used to advertise Apple Music on Apple’s website,” Clover reports, “featuring desaturated pictures of artists overlaid with the Apple Music logo in a variety of different fonts.”

“As Apple begins heavily advertising Apple Music around the world, Billboard has announced that songs streamed from Apple Music will now count towards the Billboard 200 and the Billboard Hot 100,” Clover reports. “Apple was recently added as a streaming provider and Apple Music songs will influence the August charts.”

  1. Forgot to say, Beats 1 is great! I’ll still be enjoying that from Apple’s free service. Listening to Beats 1 doesnt seem to delete my music library or mess with it in any way and the music is really good, as long as the rap isnt playing.

  2. Nice going MDN. You removed a post that was thoughtful, honest, and very very accurate about the poor service of Apple Music. I noticed that it had a FIVE star rating with over one dozen votes before you removed it.

    Your censorship exposes you for the total coward that you are. You will see my post coming from communist China, a place where I see the memory hole used on a daily basis. Here the government must protect itself by keeping the people ignorant. It never works in today’s world as the truth is out there and unstopable. Your pathetic, cowardly attempt to protect Apple’s clusterfsck known as Apple Music is doomed to fail. I laugh at your censorship.

    Cowards like you fail in the end. Always.
