Apple Music Celebrates Milestone of 100 Million Songs


Music service Apple Music yesterday celebrated reaching a milestone of 100 million songs. Apple mentioned two areas where it is working to improve the service.

Apple Music with 100 million songs
As Rachel Newman, Apple Music’s global head of editorial, said in the press release, 21 years after the launch of iTunes and sales start of the original iPods, they have grown from 1,000 songs in your pocket to 100,000 times. It’s phenomenal growth by any measure, he said.

The 100 million song number will continue to grow and multiply exponentially, he said. According to Newman, it was more than a number, representing something much more significant, the tectonic shift in the business of music creation and distribution over the past two decades.

Music industry democratized
In the 1960s, according to Newman, only 5,000 new albums were released annually, whereas today any artist around the world in 167 countries and regions can write, record, and release worldwide on Apple Music. Every day, more than 20,000 singers and songwriters publish new songs on Apple Music.

One hundred million songs attest to a democratic space where anyone, even new artists, can land the next big hit. According to Newman, human curation will be improved to drive recommendation algorithms, and secondly, more context for music will be provided on the platform, such as through Apple Music Today.
