Apple Music vs. Spotify: And the winner is…


Apple has a deeper library of music than Spotify but Spotify is loved by millions of people, except Taylor Swift of course. For now the streaming music winner is Spotify not Apple Music but its still early in the battle for our ears. 

You have been waiting for this one ever since it was announced. Apple Music vs. Spotify: And the winner is… Well the winner might be harder to pick than expect. Apple Music is finally here and guess what? It does not sucks. In fact the service is actually very good. That is what the critics are saying. Believe it or not this is the first time that Apple is actually in the streaming music business.

Apple has a way of entering already saturated marketplaces and completely taking over. Currently the streaming music world is dominated by Spotify. It would be one thing if apple was coming to take over a market that sucks. Like smartphones, Smartwatches or even laptops but the streaming world is well established. Spotify is loved by millions of people, except Taylor Swift of course. Even without the pop princess Spotify has years of experience in the field. They also have something Apple will never have again, good will. The record companies do not trust Apple after what happened with iTunes.

That said Apple Music is a really good service. It has a much deeper library of music than Spotify. It has the Beats 1 Radio and integrated Music Match.… Read the rest

BET Awards 2015: The Wrap Up


“Sam Smith isn’t here tonight because he’s white. And he didn’t think he would win at the BET Awards and we showed him that we love him, too!”~Anthony Anderson

The BET Awards 2015 lived up to the hype and then some. This was the network’s 15th annual awards show. Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross were the hosts. Chris Brown led the way for hardware with five nominations. The 2015 BET Awards were well done and a very good look at what could be if things were just a little different. Below is the warp up and my personal best moments from the show.

  • Nicki Minaj brought her mom onstage to accept her award for best female hip-hop artist, beating out Iggy Azalea, Azaelia Banks, and more.
  • Rihanna angrily threw a stack of money at Stephen Hill’s face backstage, then duct taped Floyd Mayweather’s mouth shut. It was all part of her tease for the “Bitch Better Have My Money” music video.
  • It felt like Throwback Thursday on a Sunday. Mase, 112, Lil’ Kim and The LOX minus Jadakiss. Bad Boy got the show jumping with their celebration of 20 years. However, all did not go as planned as Diddy took a fall into the pits.
  • Sam Smith won Best New Artist, but he wasn’t there to accept the award. Host Anthony Anderson took that as an opening to get at him. He said while in a Sam Smith-esque wig, “Sam Smith isn’t here tonight because he’s white.
