Apple Music Reaches Deal With Beggars Group, Indie Labels

Beggars Group and other prominent independent record labels have worked past their Apple Music impasse and announced that they have signed licensing agreements with Apple after the streaming service revealed it would compensate artists during a three-month free trial. Beggars Group's Martin Mills said in a statement, "Over the last few days we have had increasingly fruitful discussions with Apple." With Apple Music's relaunch now less than a week away, it was imperative for Apple to come to terms with the indies before the service arrived on June 30th.
