Starbucks Teams With Spotify for New Music

Starbucks may have announced it would be saying goodbye to CDs this past February, but the omnipresent coffeemakers have not given up on music. On Tuesday, the company announced a new partnership with Spotify to create what it's calling a "music ecosystem."
As part of the program, baristas and other Starbucks employees will now get a Spotify Premium subscription, which they'll be able to use, with special tools, to influence the music people hear while sipping espresso in the stores. Starbucks will be promoting Spotify Premium, the pay version of the streaming service, which has begun facing criticism from artists like Taylor Swift and competition from Jay Z.
Completing the "ecosystem," customers will also be able to suggest songs for playlists.
