Apple Music has secured another major record, one day ahead of launch, Apple confirmed to Billboard today (Jun. 29).
Dr. Dre's The Chronic was released 23 years ago, in June, 1992. Since then, the rap legend's most revered piece of work has been streamed exactly zero times, withheld from Spotify et al. (His album 2001, released in 1999, is available on other services such as Spotify, due to parent company Universal Music Group's licensing deals with those companies.) The album has sold 5.7 million to date in the U.S., according to Nielsen Music.
