SPOTIFY and alternative taxi service UBER are partnering to enable customers to "personalize their UBER ride by playing their favorite SPOTIFY music right through the car speakers." To kick off their partnership, SPOTIFY and UBER are giving fans a chance to connect with some of their favorite artists in 10 global launch cities:
Consumers will be able to connect their SPOTIFY account via the UBER app, request a ride, and when a SPOTIFY-enabled UBER shows up, they can select music from any one of UBER’s featured playlists or one of your their SPOTIFY playlists within the UBER app. They can also jump to the SPOTIFY app and select music from within the SPOTIFY catalogue.
Participating artists include: ANDREW W.K., THE SAM WILLOWS, XIMENA SARIÑANA, ANSIKTET, PROFESSOR GREEN, DIPLO, MATT AND KIM, RICKI LEE, KEVIN DREW and JAKE OWEN. Launch cities include: LONDON, LOS ANGELES, MEXICO CITY, NASHVILLE, NEW YORK, SAN FRANCISCO, SINGAPORE, STOCKHOLM, SYDNEY and TORONTO.
These special events for UBER and SPOTIFY users – including artist ride-alongs and exclusive live sessions in five of the 10 cities – will take place on FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 21st.
