Apple Music is working with artist Victoria Monét on “an exclusive virtual listening party” taking place this Thursday (6 August) to celebrate the release of her new album ‘Jaguar’ the following day.
The event will be presented by Apple Music’s ‘Today’s Hits’ playlist and hosted by Beats 1’s Nadeska Alexis. According to Broadway World, this is the first in a series of these listening parties, which “could include everything from unreleased tracks, to special guests and surprise performances and will also give fans the opportunity to chat live with their favourite artists”.
Apparently up to 1,000 fans will be able to take part, by reserving tickets online, but they will need to be Apple Music subscribers.
Monét became one of the latest artists chosen for ‘Up Next’ promotion by Apple Music earlier this year, so the listening party is part of a wider partnership with the streaming service.
