Apple Music and Genius enter new partnership

Apple Music has entered a partnership with Genius, a database of music lyrics and annotations. Under the terms of their deal, Apple Music subscribers will be able to listen to full songs on the Genius website, either in a desktop or mobile browser or in the iOS app. In exchange, Genius will provide lyrics to thousands of songs within Apple Music.

“Being able to read lyrics and annotations on Genius while you listen along on Apple Music is a dream Genius experience,” said ​Ben Gross, chief strategy officer for Genius​. “We’re proud to make Apple Music our official music player, and we’re doubly excited to bring Genius lyrics to their amazing platform.”
