By early , the Beats brand had become synonymous with headphones, and Dr. Dre and Interscope co-founder Jimmy Iovine were at the forefront of the newly-trendy audio world. The deal paved the way for the launch of Apple Music 13 months later -- which has since grown to become the second-largest streaming service in the world. September 9, U2's Songs of Innocence released as a preloaded album on the new iPhone 6.
The 13th studio album from rock gods U2 was given an extremely forward-thinking release: The band partnered with Apple to give the new album away to purchasers of the new iPhone 6, which had the album preloaded into its music library.
Though the free LP was intended by Apple as a gift, it was considered an invasion by many customers, who may not have desired the album and found it surprisingly difficult to delete from their new phones. The failed strategy showed the perils of embedding music within technology so deeply and so quasi-literally , and today, most Apple subscribers couldn't tell you a thing about Songs of Innocence besides the backlash.
Luke, who helped launch her career at the outset of the s, and signed her to his Kemosabe Records imprint. November 15th, Taylor Swift's sells 1. The world's biggest country superstar at the end of the '00s, Taylor Swift set her sights on a full pop crossover in the '10s, culminating in her biggest sales week to date -- and the biggest of anyone in over a decade -- in , for her retrofitted pop blockbuster LP The set moved 1.
By then, Taylor could no longer be considered country's biggest superstar, but she was almost certainly pop's. Though the set failed to produce a conventional hit -- "Energy," the highest-charting track, peaked at No. But the estate of Marvin Gaye, which took issue with the song's similarities with Gaye's "Got To Give It Up," sued for copyright infringement, and in a case that could have wide-ranging effects for songwriters down the road -- what is inspiration, versus outright stealing?
The judgment is still hung up in appeals, but its effects are widespread: In the years since, artists like The Chainsokers and Ed Sheeran have started pre-emptively adding other artists with potential greivances over their hits as co-writers, lest they also become plaintiffs. Ask any Directioner, and they can probably still remember the exact date when the biggest boy band of the s announced that their ranks would be one fewer. The pending launch of Apple Music June 30 was widely anticipated, and the company's decision to offer free trials for its first three months of operation was seen as an easy way to test its functionality with users.
But Apple's decision to also not pay royalties during that period drew the ire of many -- most publicly, Taylor Swift, who wrote a heartfelt open letter on behalf of her fellow musicians trashing that decision and announcing she would be withholding her album from the service.
Apple's response was, ahem , swift, and before the end of the day the company had reversed course, promising to pay royalties and forging a partnership with the superstar that resulted in a World Tour concert documentary and a string of humorous commercials for its streaming service.
Aiming to do little less but totally reimagine radio for the digital age, Apple launched their Beats 1 radio station -- based out of Los Angeles, New York and London, and headlined by star DJs Zane Lowe, Ebro Darden and Julie Adenuga -- to great hype and wide industry interest. At the same time, Apple Music debuted, rocketing past Tidal in popularity and becoming the first paid streaming service to at least put a dent in Spotify's supremacy -- thanks in large part to exclusive deals reached with megastars like Drake, Frank Ocean, and a returned-to-the-fold Taylor Swift.
In June, the service boasted that it had reached 60 million paid subsrcibers. With staggered international release schedules seeming like an increasingly archaic practice in the age of streaming, the worldwide recording industry represented by the IFPI announced that July 10, would mark the first ever Global Release Day, with music releases from all 45 participating countries now debuting on the same Friday at A.
While not all artists have followed the practice to the letter -- with some releasing mixtapes, new singles, or in some cases full albums whenever during the week they see fit -- Global Release Day has done its part to further unify an already inextricably connected music-listening world, and unquestionably made Friday the most exciting day of the music week.
In an overnight Twitter spree, Meek Mill responded to a perceived snub from former collaborator Drake by calling him out for ghostwriting : "He don't write his own raps! There were all sorts of takeaways from the saga -- about the relativity of authorship in hip-hop, about the game-changing importance of the Internet in scoring rap feuds, and about street credibility ultimately being outweighed by mainstream popularity -- but most important was that Drake somehow ended more bulletproof than ever.
October 17, Hamilton makes highest cast album Billboard debut since The all-but-unprecedented theatrical phenomenon that was Hamilton was fully underway in late , with the musical's cast album debuting at No.
The album eventually made it as high as No. Collectively, Hamilton proved the power theater could still wield in the music industry -- a lesson since reinforced by Dear Evan Hansen , whose cast recording hit the top 10 in February The monologue dominated discussion of the '15 VMAs, brought the cult of Kanye to a fever pitch and increasingly got people wondering -- especially as another celebrity with no political experience found minor success in the election -- if such a thing might actually be possible, if not outright desirable -- A.
The Eagles of Death Metal were on stage at one of Paris' most famous music venues when three terrorists stormed the entrance and began shooting at random, part of a coordinated attack at several locations across the city that ultimately killed people in the French capitol. For several hours, the terrorists at Le Bataclan held hostages and murdered concert-goers before being killed by police; 89 people were killed in the venue, in an attack that sent chills through the concert industry and the world.
For a decade and a half, 'N Sync's first-week sales record just over 2. But Adele's third album 25 didn't just take the record down -- it practically lapped it, moving an absolutely astounding 3. That week , 25 accounted for 41 percent of all album sales in America, or twice as much as albums No. The album was the ultimate early Christmas gift to Adele, Columbia Records and the entire music industry, proving a TRL-sized blockbuster LP was still possible in , and then some.
The Man Who Fell to Earth often seemed above such trivial matters as life and death, gloriously shape-shifting so many times throughout his legendary, singular career that we figured his spirit would never be defeated by his body. Sadly, the evidence pointed to the contrary on a miserable Monday morning in January , when the world woke up to news that David Bowie had died of cancer the night before -- just two days, remarkably, after the release of his final album, the darkly spectral Blackstar.
The outpouring of grief overflowed from all directions, proving how few corners of the music world the man born David Robert Jones hadn't touched -- and improved -- in some way. Though its release -- exclusively via Tidal -- was rocky, Rihanna's ANTI album was hailed as a triumph upon its early release, one of the artist's most personal, most coherent and most consistently dazzling works.
It was also a tremendous commercial success, spawning five platinum-certified singles and going platinum itself in less than a day's worth of commercial availability. Or did it? The RIAA recognized the 1. A couple days later, the RIAA added streaming equivalent units to their certification formula. The explosion in popularity of dance music in the United States at the turn of the decade brought with it enthusiasm, a wave of new artists and a mountain of riches, with Robert Sillerman and his reborn SFX Entertainment at the forefront of the EDM gold rush.
More than a year later, it's still almost unfathomable: the purple icon, one of the most innovative minds of his generation, a person that musical geniuses all looked to as a musical genius, had died suddenly in his Minnesota home at the age of Famously sober and intensely private, Prince had overdosed on the opioid Fentanyl, a drug that was at the center of a budding nationwide epidemic of pain medication abuse, which somehow, in its revelation of his suffering, seemed even more cruel.
The outpouring of grief was immediate and total, and the fact that the saga of his recorded-music rights -- still caught up in court -- remains ongoing is sad.
Two days after Prince's death, another once-in-a-generation artist was following his multimedia example with the HBO-premiered visual album Lemonade. The album raised the standard for pop production -- in the overall sense -- that Queen Bey had set herself with her self-titled album two and a half years earlier, and proved that full-length albums were as vital as ever for artists with a little imagination.
June 12, Orlando's Pulse nightclub becomes scene of worst mass shooting in U. Following the harrowing events at Le Bataclan in Paris less than a year earlier, the terrorist attack once again made the concert and nightclub industries look towards security measures, metal detectors and other ways of keeping patrons safe, while a city once more was forced to mourn. June 16, Grammy rule changes allow for streaming-only releases to be Grammy-eligible.
Before , music had to be made commercially available for sale to be considered for the Grammys, leaving artists who chose to distribute their music primarily through streaming services ineligible. But in , the Academy embraced changing tides by deeming recordings Grammy-eligible if they appeared on at least one of the streaming "majors," such as Spotify or Apple Music. As much as the night of Snapchat-gate is what people will most remember from Round II of the era-defining Kanye-Taylor feud, this was what it was really all about: Kanye renting out an entire basketball stadium to premiere a music video, for his song braying insultingly and absurdly about his chances of still sleeping with his pop nemesis.
The video, of course, just doubled down on the celebrity insularity: A ten-minute short, filmed like one of the creepy videotapes from David Lynch's Lost Highway , consisting of eerie doll proxies of pretty much every headline-dominating celebrity of -- including Bill Cosby, vanquished Kanye foe Ray J, and of course, future president Donald Trump -- sleeping in the same bed together.
This was fame as Kanye had come to know it: Incestuous, paradoxical and claustrophobic AF. It had been four years since Frank Ocean released his beloved Def Jam debut Channel Orange , and the anticipation -- and mystery -- surrounding his next release was palpable. So when he released the "visual album" Endless via Apple Music, fans were confused.
Until the following day, when -- freshly free from his Def Jam contract, having fulfilled his obligation with Endless -- Ocean surprise-released a second album, Blond , independently and also via Apple Music, which debuted at No. September 10, Twenty One Pilots notch simulteanous hits in the Hot 's top 5.
Easily the biggest breakout band of -- and arguably the entire decade -- was Twenty One Pilots, who scaled commercial heights rarely afforded to rock acts in the '10s, with a trio of Hot top 5 hits. Two of those, "Heathens" and "Ride," even perched inside the top 5 in the same week, making the duo the first rock act since The Beatles to score two such simultaeous hits.
Of course, the "rock" part of the equation came with a bit of an addendum: Just as influenced by pop, EDM and hip-hop as rock, and missing any standard guitars, the duo would hardly define themselves so conventionally.
Nevertheless, they offered a 21st-century model for rock stardom that no doubt many bands will look to in the years to come. In a Billboard cover story released shortly after their world-beating Halsey duet "Closer" had brought them to the top of the Hot for the first time, The Chainsmokers -- first introduced to the world as the act behind novelty hit "Selfie," then the producers behind a variety of female-sung pop smashes -- had their coming-out party.
The duo were met with backlash for some of their unguarded comments, embracing their own frattiness, detailing their knowledge of their own social media metrics and bragging about their combined penis size. The move also meant a shift to chairman of SME for Doug Morris, the longtime industry executive who was widely respected as the only person to run all three major record labels -- Sony , Universal Music Group and Warner Music Group -- during his career.
Rae Sremmurd turned a long-simmering fan-and-Internet favorite into one of the biggest hits of the year seemingly overnight, by literally doing nothing.

Okay the Houses of the Holy reference as a gadget was weak, but have to admit I did a double take when it came out Alice Cooper's Schools Out with the open up school desk was pretty cool, never got the underpants connection till later.
Then again I was 13 at the time. I can't beat Zeppelin for gadgetry, but Spiritualized had a couple of good ones in the '90s. One of them, Pure Phase , was luminous and had a tray that slid out after much effort , and the next one, Ladies And Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space was presented in a prescription-style box. It might be relevant here to mention the new CD by Bellows, which comes in a vacuum-packed bag, so in order to play the music it's necessary to destroy the packaging forever.
