When is there going to be a universal streaming service?

Never.

That’s the shortest answer at least. Most likely, never. But it really is a pain in the ass being restricted from being able to listen to all of this new music right when it releases just cause you didn’t luckily choose the right app to purchase.

Between Apple Music, Tidal, Spotify, and Soundcloud’s new promotion (lol), all of this “exclusive” dropping of music is getting old quick. This could lead to something great hopefully at the end of the day, but for the time being, I guess we’re stuck hopping back and forth between subscriptions so that we can listen to the Anti, Views, and Coloring Book’s of the world right when they’re published. That is, if the artist promotes the album appropriately with the correct release date.

Like what you read? Give Ralph James a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
