Here’s the Music Industry News Roundup for the week ending on April 21st, 2017. Spotify was much in the news this week, but there were a lot of other significant news stories as well. Let’s get into it.
Is the end of the free streaming tier near? It might be coming soon, especially if the music industry has its way.
