29 Apr 2021: Apple Music introduces new feature with 100 city-focused music charts
It looks like Apple Music is here to take on other major players in the music streaming industry.
The global brand has launched new daily music charts focused on particular cities globally, like NYC, Tokyo and Lagos.
Called City Charts, this unique service will feature the Top 25 songs on each local chart depending on the number of plays in that particular city.
Details: This is how you can listen to the top tracks
For listening to a local city chart, you can take Siri's assistance.
For example, if you want to listen to LA City Chart, you just have to say, "Hey Siri, play the Top 25: Lost Angeles."
The listeners can access it via the Browse or Search pages on Apple Music.
You can then listen to those tracks and add them to your library.
Fact: 'Now Apple Music connects you to the music making waves'

Rivalry: Apple Music v/s Spotify: And the battle continues
To recall, Apple Music recently took a jab at Spotify over the platform's polarizing payment model.
Even though the newsletter doesn't highlight Spotify, people were quick to notice the parallels. Apple Music explained how it handles its payouts to artists and songwriters.
The biggest takeaway from it is that they "do not ask anyone to accept a lower royalty rate in exchange for featuring."
