With a new music player Myspace may be on cusp of redeeming its tattered reputation. Um, say what?
Well, having a legal song inventory that’s said to be the biggest in the world at some 42 million songs, Myspace certainly has, for some time, had the potential to be a real leader in digital music. However, till recently it has lacked the technology that could excite people enough to draw them away from competitors that include, most importantly, Spotify, Pandora and Rhapsody. Well, no more.
That’s right, Myspace can now brag about it’s highly sophisticated discovery engine and partnership with Facebook, its erstwhile competitor, and how it’s getting a lot of positive press about its recent massive growth.
And, with Justin Timberlake as a key investor and public face of the company, Myspace just may be able to become cool and popular again. It’s certainly starting to look that way.
So, whoever said Myspace would not come back till pigs fly, might just have to be on the look out for projectile bacon.
