Apple Music teams up with Genius to bring annotated lyrics to subscribers
Have you ever wondered what Jay-Z meant when he sings about spending money from '88? Wonder no more because popular music encyclopedia and lyrics database Genius has just announced a partnership with Apple.
And as part of this partnership, Apple Music will be Genius' official music player and Apple Music subscribers will be able to visit Genius and play any song in full while browsing lyrics and annotations.
This will work for Apple Music subscribers visiting Genius.com on their desktops and iOS mobile web and through the Genius iOS app.
Ben Gross, Genius' Chief Strategy Officer, has this to say:
Being able to read lyrics and annotations on Genius while you listen along on Apple Music is a dream Genius experience. We’re proud to make Apple Music our official music player, and we’re doubly excited to bring Genius lyrics to their amazing platform.”
