The deal is expected to be signed this week, the report said
Shazam made $50 million in revenue last year, according to a person familiar with the company. Founded in 1999, Shazam can listen to music that's playing around you and identify the song title, artist, and album.
Representatives for Apple and Shazam did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
