Spotify may start streaming Prince’s music in February

Prince was one of the artists that refused to put his music onto streaming services. That could all change next month.

Chris Riemenschneider of the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

Once way ahead of the curve when it came to distributing his music on the internet, Prince probably will join the 21st century again when his classic albums become available on popular streaming services such as Spotify, Apple Music and Google Play later in February.

No official announcement has been made, but new purple Spotify ads on subways and billboards around New York and London — along with unnamed sources in Billboard and other industry publications — are hinting at a new online availability of the late Minneapolis rock legend’s catalog in time to tout it during the Grammy Awards on Feb. 12, where he will be remembered in an all-star tribute.
