Universal asks Spotify to “strongly urge” users to switch to premium

While there is no doubt that digital music and music streaming services has totally revolutionized the way we listen to and consume music, what is still up for debate is how artists and music label are "properly compensated".

Spotify now available in Canada

Canadians don't need to envy most of the world now, at least when it comes to enjoying one of the biggest music streaming services currently on the market.
