rotana's music library is back on anghami

All users of Anghami, the MENA region’s leading music and entertainment streaming platform, have a reason to celebrate because Rotana Music Holding, the largest record label and music repertoire holder in the Arab world, has just agreed to bring its large music library back to the platform.

We say “back” because Rotana was one of Anghami’s key partners when the service launched in 2012. The partnership ended when Rotana decided to move its copyrighted content to Deezer, which is partially owned by Rotana’s owner Al Waleed Bin Talal.

Anghami’s recent growth following its listing on the NASDAQ stock exchange on 4 February 2022, which caused its shares to grow by 80 percent and its market capitalization to exceed $500 million, might be a reason why the two companies are partners again.

Rotana’s music library includes some of the most popular Arab artists, such as Mohammad Abdo, Abdul Majeed Abdullah, Rashid Al Majid, Abdullah Al Ruwaished, Majed Al Mohandes, Rabeh Saqr, Nawal Al Kuwaitiya, and Ahlam.

The agreement for the partnership was signed Salem Al Hindi, CEO of Rotana Music Holding and Eddy Maroun, Anghami’s co-founder and CEO.

“We are thrilled to commence this partnership with Anghami, which will also strengthen the relationship between Rotana and its artists,” said Salem Al Hindi. “Rotana and its artists. We are confident that this collaboration will expand the business even further with the purpose of reaching Rotana music fans across the world.”

Eddy Maroun said that he was delighted to welcome Rotana to Anghami. “There is no better way to celebrate Anghami’s tenth year and next chapter, than expanding our library of 72 million songs to include Rotana’s authentic Arabic content and rewarding fans with a wealth of original tracks,” he added.

The partnership with Rotana is expected to attract even more listeners to Anghami, which already has 75 million users from around the world.

Spotify Is Experimenting With Artist NFT Collections

According to a recent survey, it seems that the currently tested NFT collections are just the first step toward a much broader implementation of NFTs into the platform.

NFT sales may have declined by 92 percent since September 2021, but that’s not stopping Spotify from experimenting with a new feature that lets artists display their non-fungible token (NFT) collections on the music streaming platform.

At the moment, only a small group of artists are taking part in the experiment, including Steve Aoki and The Wombats. What’s more, only select US users of the Spotify app for Android can see NFTs when they visit the profile pages of the aforementioned artists.

“Spotify is running a test in which it will help a small group of artists promote their existing third-party NFT offerings via their artist profiles,” said Spotify spokesperson. “We routinely conduct a number of tests in an effort to improve artist and fan experiences.”

It’s important to point out that not all Spotify experiments result in new features. It all depends on the feedback the music streaming platform receives from users.

According to a survey some Spotify users have recently received, it seems that the currently tested NFT collections are just the first step toward a much broader implementation of NFTs into the platform. More specifically, Spotify seems to be thinking about allowing its users to directly purchase NFT art to support their favorite artists.

Considering how polarizing NFTs have been since their inception in 2014, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that many Spotify users have immediately expressed their dissatisfaction with the idea of NFTs becoming part of the Spotify music listening experience.

Other large tech companies are also experimenting with NFTs. Instagram, for example, started testing NFT integration last week, allowing NFT creators and collectors to display their tokens on the platform. Mark Zuckerberg himself believes that NFTs and digital collectibles in general will play an integral role in the metaverse, the new iteration of the internet.
