Sirius XM has signed on to purchase Pandora for $3 billion, further diversifying its offerings to online music streaming. The deal comes just one year later after the Sirius XM Holdings took an initial 19 percent stake in Pandora by investing $480 million into the company.

With this move, Sirius stands to make a major transition from streaming done mostly in the car – where most of its users listen – to on-demand music streaming where most activity is done at home or via a mobile device. It will also benefit both companies’ negotiating power with labels and other music-rights holders. While speculation can only confirm the future scaling of benefits available to both companies’ users, with Pandora’s user base of 74.7 million and Sirius XM’s paid subscriptions boasting 36 million users, the buyout will create a user base to rival Spotify, which leads in paid subscriptions at 83 million users as of June.

Once the deal goes through, the newly formed audio entity will be worth $30 billion, well competing with Spotify’s valuation of $23 billion after the company went public earlier this year.

Destructo announces new SiriusXM radio show, debuts elbow-throwing hip-hop cut with Busta Rhymes, ‘F**king Sh*t Up’

This post was originally published on this site

Destructo‘s Rolodex of rappers just grew by one legendary associate — Busta Rhymes. And while Gary Richards normally recruits his favorite rhymers for his signature G-house products, this time around, the pair go all in on a apologetically through-and-through hip-hop beat, aptly titled, “F**king Sh*t Up.” The title leaves no room for subtlety. The track is a mean-mugging, elbow-throwing trap piece with Busta locked in to delivering his characteristically gruff super-spits over tight hi-hat rolls and snappy snare hits. The track comes in conjunction with an exciting announcement from the LiveStyle president’s camp.

Debuting on SiriusXM on April 12, Destructo’s new AMFAMFAMF Radio program will launch on the newly christened Diplo’s Revolution channel. The weekly radio show, slotted for Thursday nights, will showcase the new AMF brand and presumably include numerous cameos by Destructo’s legendary friends circle. Keeping a packed itinerary as per usual, Richards’ All My Friends road stretch is now on sale as his summer tour dates begin to heat up. With a new radio show launching, a tour nearly underway, and a brand new hit to rinse out all summer long, expect Destructo to be in your line of sight at almost every turn.

En Pure has long been creating smooth sensations with her music, entrancing the masses with her 2013 breakthrough deep house track “Come With Me.” Since then, she has eclipsed expectations. In 2016 she was entrusted with curating a two-hour mix for Pete Tong‘s “BBC Essential Mix,” and the next year was the only female to play Tomorrowland‘s Mainstage Daybreak Session.
