Apple Music execs will have been cheering the Oscars ceremony on Sunday. Not because they all love Sophie from Peep Show (well, not just that) but because another winner on the night has just curated a playlist on the music-streaming service.
Double Best-Supporting-Actor winner Mahershala Ali is behind the ‘Represent: Mahershala Ali’ playlist on Apple Music, which is launching as part of Black History Month in the US. It joins playlists from other actors and celebrities to mark the event: Tracee Ellis Ross, John David Washington, Ava DeVernay and more are part of Apple’s on-platform celebrations. Not that Apple is alone in this: Spotify is also celebrating Black History Month with its range of ‘Wear Black History Collection’ merchandise.
We wrote about it earlier this month, but now Spotify has launched a microsite for the collection – and is giving it away for free in a digital sweepstakes.
