The rumors are true! Drake has teamed up with Apple for their new music streaming service after allegedly backing out of a deal with Jay Z’s TIDAL service. And he’s releasing his next album exclusively on the new service. Get the deets and find out just how serious NBA free agent Baron Davis is with his new jheri curl ‘do inside….

Remember when we told you Drake allegedly backed out of his supposed deal with Jay Z’s TIDAL music streaming service at the last minute, reportedly to join forces with Apple? Well, the rumors are true.

Today, Drizzy took the stage at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco to pitch the technology giant’s new Apple Music streaming service, specifically the social media component called Connect. During his speech, he said, “Instead of having to post your stuff on these different and sometimes confusing places, it’s all in one place: Connect.”

And guess what? The Young Money rapper announced he will be releasing his next album exclusively through the new service.

Apple Music will allow users to stream music, download music and play radio stations all in one place. It will combine the existing iTunes store with access to new features.

Connect will allow artists to create their own profiles with content curated exclusively by them. Fans will be allowed to interact with artists via their profiles, which will allow the artists to build a new fanbase via the service. Artists already on board include Pharrell Williams, Chris Cornell and many more.

There’s also a radio station overhaul that will be featured on the platform called Beats 1, which will broadcast from New York, London, and L.A., 24 hours a day worldwide. Hot 97’s Ebro Darden will hold down the NYC station.

Unlike Hov’s TIDAL service (which costs $19.99/month), Apple Music will cost $9.99 per and users will get the first three months for free. Apple devices will be able to download the new service once it’s launched on June 30th. Android and Windows devices will be able to download the new platform this fall.

Peep Drizzy’s pitch below:

So…we have to ask…will you be subscribing to Apple’s new music platform or spend your coins on Jay Z’s TIDAL service?

On social media…

Retired NBA player Baron Davis copped himself a new ‘do…and Twitter wasted NO time to bash him for it!

Today, the former NY Knicks star appeared on ESPN’s “First Take” to chop it up about the NBA Finals where he debuted his extra moist jheri curl. Twitter went into a frenzy with the memes and jokes. Below are a few:

Twitter users caught Baron’s attention with the funny memes, so he decided to respond. He tweeted:

Oh…and he’s serious about his new ‘do. Last month, he posted a clip on Instagram sitting under the dryer to perfect his curl:

He captioned, “It’s hot as hell under here, man” he said in the clip. “My scalp is burning. But it’s gonna be worth it.”

We’re just going to leave this here….
