Amazon Music continues to be an undeniable force in the world of music streaming and downloading. Just as the e-commerce giant did for books, home goods, clothes – and, well just about everything else – Amazon has established itself as a source of new music for its ever-expanding, global user base. With 55 million customers, each week fans of all genres flock to the platform to find new music from their favorite artists and discover their next favorite artists.
As one of the leaders in the streaming market, Amazon is stepping up its offering to independent musicians with Amazon Music For Artists, a mobile app-based portal that allows artists to claim, customize and glean more vital information from their profiles on Amazon Music.
