Spotify. Our favourite music-streaming app. Love it or hate it, it’s here, it’s popular and it’s here to stay; Because Spotify is not just about music. It has just made a massive push into video with 12 new original shows.
It’s not the first time that Spotify dabbles with video, but it is the first time the company produces its own video content. Up until recently, it showcased videos from around the web – but now it’s got 12 shows in the pipeline which will resemble YouTube Red rather than Netflix; Short 15-minute episodes rather than full series of episodes or films. I guess you gonna start somewhere, right?
If you like our stories, there is an easy way to stay updated:
And in case you are wondering what the shows will be about… rest assured that they will be music-related.
‘Drawn & Recorded’ is animated and looks at different music artists, ‘Landmark’ is a documentary series about different times in history (music history). There is even some Hollywood in there with ‘Rush Hour’ with two hop-hop groups get to collaborate own one piece of music. The show, as you might have guessed, features Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker – Yep, you’ve seen the movie right?
So, do you think Spotify it has a chance? Well, I think it at least has a foot in the door with music-related content. That’s what it should stick to. Don’t try to take on the big boys now. There’s no point.
