Music Lyrics company Genius announced that it has a partnership with Apple to enhance Apple Music. Below is the official press release:
Genius is the world’s biggest encyclopedia of music, built by artists, scholars, and super-fans working together to go deep inside their favorite songs. Now the encyclopedia has a soundtrack. Starting today, Apple Music subscribers who visit Genius will be able to play any song in full right from the song page, simply by signing into their Apple Music account.
But that’s not all.
Genius has the world’s best lyrics database and now it’s available on Apple Music. Genius will provide lyrics to thousands of hit songs on the service—bringing world-class accuracy and timeliness powered by Genius’s global community of artists and fans.
“Being able to read lyrics and annotations on Genius while you listen along on Apple Music is a dream Genius experience,” said Ben Gross, Genius’s Chief Strategy Officer. “We’re proud to make Apple Music our official music player, and we’re doubly excited to bring Genius lyrics to their amazing platform.”
The Apple Music player is currently available on Genius.com (desktop and iOS mobile web) and in our iOS app. Stay tuned to Genius for updates.
