Spotify WMG deal details

It is worth noting that Spotify and WMG had signed a deal in the past. However, both parties could not finalize the terms of a renewed deal about a year back. This deal comes just about a month after Warner Music expanded its operations in the Indian market. Beyond India, the company has opened its new offices in Turkey, Peru, Finland, Slovakia, and Nigeria in the past twelve months. Some of the artists that Spotify users in India can listen to include Linkin Park, Coldplay, and Ed Sheeran. The list continues with Wiz Khalifa, Led Zeppelin, David Bowie, Green Day, Bruno Mars, Cardi B, Madonna, and more.
