8 popular summer albums and singles Prime Members can stream for free on Prime Music right now
- Amazon has two streaming options: Prime Music and Music Unlimited. While Music Unlimited costs $7.99 a month for Prime members (and just $0.99 for Prime Student members right now), Prime Music is totally free with your Prime subscription.
- Prime Music is a cool benefit of having an Amazon Prime membership, but if you love music, it's probably not enough to sustain your listening habits. With a catalog of just over two million songs, compared to Music Unlimited's 50 million, Prime Music has many holes.
- However, Prime Music has a surprisingly solid selection of new releases right now, something I wasn't expecting to see. From highly anticipated albums to defining songs of the summer, here are eight cool music releases you can stream on Prime Music right now.
Recently, I - a self-proclaimed Spotify loyalist - gave Amazon's music streaming services a try.
I found that Amazon's Music Unlimited, the premium, $7.99-per-month subscription tier of Amazon's music offerings, rivaled Spotify with its large catalog of songs and affordable price. Prime Music, on the other hand, paled in comparison, which makes sense given that it's the free version.Well, not technically free - Prime Music is included with your Amazon Prime membership, so you're still paying for it in some way (and in case you don't have a membership yet, you can sign up for a 30-day free trial - after that it'll cost you $12.99 a month).
Amazon Prime has a plethora of benefits, but access to Prime Music is an often-overlooked perk. The song selection is definitely lean, but considering you can access it at no extra cost, it's not too bad. In fact, I recently visited the Prime Music landing page and was surprised by the range of new music available.
I had assumed the rush of new albums and singles summer always brings would only be available on Amazon Music Unlimited, but surprisingly, you can find many of this season's latest drops on Prime Music.
Here are some of the best new releases you can listen to Prime Music right now:
