“I’m committed to getting streaming right” – Jimmy
Last week, reports surfaced that Jimmy Iovine would be leaving Apple Music, in plans for an imminent retirement. Well, after watching the music world discuss the rumor, the mogul spoke with Variety and shut the door about him leaving the streaming giant next summer in August.
He went to say, “I am almost 65, have been with Apple for four years and in 2 1/2 years the Apple Music service has gotten to well over 30 million subscribers and Beats has continued its successful run. But there’s still a lot more we’d like to do. I am committed to doing whatever Eddy Cue, Tim Cook and Apple need me to do, to help wherever and however I can, to take this all the way.”
While Jimmy says he’s turning 65 later this year, he hinted that he’ll eventually have to slow down on day-to-day career moves at Apple Music – but it won’t be anytime soon.
