In between a rock and a hard place
Maybe. I don’t see why not. It doesn’t cost extra to the end consumers and some may enjoy it.
Made no judgment whether I think it's a good thing or not. Just asking if people think this is going to be their "thing", and by "their" I mean Apple, not consumers. Not really sure of the advantage it gives Apple as an exclusive since literally, figuratively speaking of course, as soon as these things are posted to Apple Music, they are re-posted to Youtube. Ironically, by Apple Music subscribers.
