The New York Post reports Apple is rumored to be recruiting Drake, Pharrell, and David Guetta as part of a proposed $19 million deal to beef up the tech giant’s iTunes Radio service. Claire Atkinson reports the following via The Post:
“Apple is in talks to sign a rumored $19 million deal to get ‘Started From the Bottom’ rapper Drake as a guest DJ for iTunes Radio, among other things. Drake is just one of a host of artists Apple wants to snag for its huge all-encompassing assault on the music front.”
The proposed deal, which has not been confirmed by Apple, Drake, Pharrell, or any of the parties mentioned, allegedly calls for a $10 monthly subscription fee to rival Spotify and Pandora. Such a deal would be the latest of its kind for Apple after the 2014 deal that absorbed Beats Electronic, Beats Music and gave Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine undisclosed roles at Apple.
Based on the upcoming schedule for Apple’s World Wide Developer Conference in San Francisco, a similar deal for Drake, Pharrell, and Guetta would need to be finalized before June 8.
