New Store Alert: Boomplay Music

Here at TuneCore, we’re always on the move to offer independent artists with as many outlets by which to reach fans as possible. That’s why we’re excited to announce our partnership with Boomplay Music, a streaming and download platform serving music fans in pan-Africa and African diaspora markets.

Boomplay Music – an app developed by TECNO MOBILE LIMITED – aims to deliver the best African and International music while also “building a sustainable digital music ecosystem for African artists.” With seven million users and a growth rate of over 700,000 new users per month, the platform seems to be doing just that!

As a global digital music distributor, TuneCore allows artists in all territories to take advantage of the major growth in streaming and discovery occurring all over the world and well outside their markets. Just because you aren’t touring in African countries (…yet), you can still make your releases available for music fans there to enjoy. By distributing your upcoming or existing singles, EPs, and albums to Boomplay Music, you’re able to enjoy a wider potential reach in an ever-expanding market.

With the Boomplay Music app, music lovers can do the following:

  • Download music,
  • Subscribe for unlimited music,
  • Listen to their favorite songs,
  • Watch videos on the go,
  • Curate personal playlists,
  • Follow, engage and interact with fellow users,
