Report: Spotify hitting back at artists who sign exclusives elsewhere

Spotify

Rumours have been building from the world of music streaming.

According to a report by Bloomberg released yesterday, music service Spotify has been hitting back at music artists who sign exclusive streaming deals with it’s two biggest rivals Apple Music and Tidal.

The report suggests that Spotify has been making it harder for its users to find the music of artists who have launched their albums elsewhere. People familiar with Spotify’s strategy reported that artists who have given Apple exclusive access to their new music have been told their songs won’t get included in Spotify’s Featured Playlists. This drastically decreases their presence on the platform and ability to make income from streams.
