I am a self-proclaimed music fanatic, so it is quite crucial for me to have the best music streaming app possible. For a long time it was all about Pandora. Pandora was cute for a time until I came to the point where my skips ran out (I know you know how that feels). And then I realized that I couldn’t listen to what I wanted when I wanted with Pandora. It wasn't giving me what I needed or desired. Therefore, it got kicked right to the curb.
Next up was Spotify. Now, I was on Spotify for about a year. So much so that I didn’t mind dropping coins on a monthly basis to be a premium member. Basically, it was bae. I loved how I had the liberty to create my own playlists with the songs that I wanted to hear on MY time. Plus, it was commercial free! Whenever the latest albums dropped, I was able to get to them immediately thanks to Spotify. Any song I wanted to listen to, no matter how old it was or who it was by, I was able to find it. Well, except for any Aaliyah album beyond ‘Age Ain’t Nothing But A Number’. I was very satisfied musically. I thought it couldn’t get any better. Almost like the perfect relationship.
That was until… Apple Music. When I first heard about Apple Music I was hesitant because I felt that they were trying to take my beloved Spotify out of business. So of course, I remained loyal to it. It wasn’t until I upgraded iPhones did I notice the new pretty design of the signature iTunes icon. I tapped on it and it immediately took me to Apple Music. And to make it even more tempting, it offered a free 3-month trial. How can you say no to that?! Of course, I registered for it.
Apple Music was giving me the same product as Spotify, or so it seemed. That was until a few days later when I noticed pre-made playlists that were popping up under the “For You” tab. I saw that they had music playlists created based simply on what I liked! Apple Music noticed my music listening trends and personalized the app just for me. It knew exactly what I wanted and that is how I realized I couldn’t live without it. It's like it wanted to know me more than Spotify ever did. At that moment, I had to end my love affair with Spotify. As difficult as it was, I knew I deserved better and Apple Music gave me just that.
For all of my music people, I URGE you to get on the Apple Music wave as soon as possible! No other music streaming service compares. That is… if you’re willing to drop a monthly payment after your trial expires. Apple Music gives you what you want and exceeds by creating content for you! I don’t even need to create my own playlists anymore!
It’s just like what Kerry Washington said in the Apple Music Commercial, “It’s like you have a boyfriend who makes you mixtapes in your laptop.” This streaming service knows you and it cares.
If this didn't convince you or even make you at least a little curious, this commercial definitely should. Happy listening!
