Chery joined Apple when the tech giant acquired Beats By Dre and Beats Music in 2014. He is also credited for securing exclusive releases from Chance The Rapper, including the Grammy Award-winning album, "Coloring Book", for Apple Music. This person is no other than the Head of Artist Curation for hip hop, Carl Chery. Basa left Spotify last month after serving the company for three years. However, it looks like he'll be taking his talents over to a competing streaming service. It turns out the Swedish company will soon be stealing one of the most valuable people that helped Apple Music rise.

Recent news surfaced of a serious loss for Apple Music that will likely affect its performance.

We already know Spotify is a few steps ahead of Apple Music in terms of subscribers and popularity.

Also, the player would have a 4G connection integrated and free but that can only be used to play music streaming from the service. An invitation to a Spotify event obtained by The Verge confirms major changes are coming to the mobile app as well.

The company has also reportedly been developing some type of branded hardware.

Currently, Apple Music has a total of 40 million paid subscribers, while Spotify's latest data shows that their streaming service has approximately 70 million subscribers. Therefore, this is a serious blow for Apple Music.
