I disagree that it's the future of music. I think it is the rebirth of radio, which was ripe for disruption. Not a days goes by when I regret ripping my CD collection. Luckily, used CDs are now so cheap it's easy to recover from those crappy bitstreams by re-ripping to Apple Lossless or some other audiophile format.
Jimmy Iovine talks past, future of Apple Music in new interview: "Iovine sat down with Billboard to clear the air over recent reports — one from Rolling Stone in particular — that forward a narrative in which tech companies bring on record execs to foster partnerships with music industry elite. This so-called "liaison narrative" is an oversimplification of Iovine's work, which started when the former music executive co-founded Beats with Dr. Dre. "
