Dr. Dre To Introduce Beats Music In January 2014

Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine to launch Beats Music with the hopes of "helping people re-discover the magic in the experience of listening to music."

Producer/entrepreneur Dr. Dre plans on taking Beats Electronics, which he founded alongside Jimmy Iovine, one step further next year with the introduction of Beats Music. According to AllHipHop.com, Beats Music will serve as a new addition to the music streaming market and will serve as a partnership between Dre and Nine Inch Nail’s Trent Reznor.

As opposed to other music streaming services, Beats Music will seek to introduce users to new music by “helping people re-discover the magic in the experience of listening to music.”

Beats Music, which was previously known as Daisy, was first announced at the top of this year and will reportedly allow paying customers to stream up to 12 million songs.

“Right now, these things are all utilities. It's give me your credit card, here's 12 million songs, good luck," said Jimmy Iovine in January. "We have an entire generation that was brought up on sound being inferior, and sound is the only conduit for emotion that we have. We've had ten very bad years in the audio industry. So we want the best possible quality, and it will have global scale. So it will be a balance of those things."

Beats Music is expected to launch in January. Those interested in joining the music streaming service when it launches next year can pre-register at BeatsMusic.com.

In September of this year, Beats Electronics received a $500 million investment from the Carlyle Group while Beats Music reportedly received a $60 million investment in March from Access Industries and several private investors.

In addition to Dr. Dre’s work with Beats Electronics, which helped the producer secure a spot on Forbes’ Cash Kings 2013 list, both he and Iovine donated $70 million to the University of Southern California this year to help in the creation of the Jimmy Iovine and Andre Young Academy for Arts, Technology and the Business of Innovation.

    "WHERES DETOX?" Ironically people stopped fienin for it. The plan was to drop Relapse after Detox which would've made sense since you can relapse after Detox in real life, now the public is Detoxed from Detox.

    just wait til hopsin releases his headphones, they will make dre's look like trash. #independentgrind #turnitup #hopsexy

  • Whatever

    Dre can't afford to have Detox not be a hit. So he's scared to drop it at all.

  • Gucci The ROAT

    At least Gucci is a real street nigga. Fake niggas: * Nas never sold drugs. Remember when Jay-Z said "i showed you your first tech at Large professors tour" * Mobb Deep were at the school of arts. So when did they there robberies and shootouts???????? * Ice Cube never was a gangbanger and was bullied at school according to his old forgotten homies. * Jay-Z has ZERO respect in the streets, just ask Cam'ron! Nobody in Brooklyn can confirm that Jay-Z has sold drugs. * 2Pac never sold drugs. Suge Knight was the mussles behind 2pac because without him 2pac was a coward. * Eminem never killed someone or was a serial killer. His image was made up by Interscope Records to sell records. Lol the angry frustrated white kid. * Snoop sold some drugs but was just a SMALL soldier. * T.I. is a snitch how can you get away with housearest for illegal weapons without snitching? Normally you 10 years! * Young Jeezy was already exposed by Gucci as a fraud.

    Is it just me, or was 2001 better than Chronic?

    • Anonymous

      It' you. The Chronic was a whole new music experience, 2001 came out with expectations based on the Chronic which it wasn't dissapointing, but the cast of the Chronic sounded more hungry IMO.

    what about Detox you fat rich fuck???????

  • Prick James

  • Fuk dre and detox

    Why does Dre even continue to do business. I mean the guy really doesn't need more money anymore so what's the fuckin point. You never saw Eminem doing business deals or trying to do shit other than his music to make some cash, and he could easily have made millions more doing buisness with a name as big as his. Dre just isn't passionate about music anymore.

    • Anonymous

      Dude. At This Point It Aint About The Money. Dre has a passion for music bro. When you have a passion to do something, you'll do it for free if you're in a position to. He can probably take the money he makes with this and wipe his ass with it.

    • Anonymous

      can you blame him? compare rap to what it was when dre came out he wont be inspired at all anymore! he's making way more money with the whole beats stuff, he doing good for himself.
