Today from SOUTH BY SOUTHWEST, RHAPSODY announced it was making a vast catalog of music available for sharing on TWITTER. With this launch, RHAPSODY becomes the first streaming music service to offer licensed full-track playback to music fans on TWITTER. This music is fully-licensed to ensure that artists, labels and publishers are paid for their work as songs are played.
"We loved how TWITTER audio cards work seamlessly within the TWITTER app and we wanted to make the experience of sharing music with friends easy by bringing great licensed content to one of the world's largest conversation platforms," said RHAPSODY INTERNATIONAL CFO ETHAN RUDIN. "Our goal with this launch is to not only help make streaming more social, but also to reinforce that music isn't free – every song played is accounted for and fully paid up."
"The support from the artist community is invaluable as we continue to innovate and introduce new ways to stream licensed music," said RUDIN.
