Beats 1, which is the flagship global radio station from Apple has been renamed as Music 1. Apple also announced two new radio stations for Apple Music which will be offered globally to music fans in 165 countries.

Apple Beats 1 Renamed as Apple Music 1
Zane Lowe, Apple Music’s global creative director and host said, “Apple Music is home — it’s home to artists, it’s home to fans, and it’s home to incredible music.” This is just a shift of name and nothing else. Apple is not going to change the platform in any way at the moment. Apple Music 1 is featuring several shows which are aimed at celebrating Latin music around the world. There is a show called ‘Africa Now Radio with Cuppy’ and it showcases some of the best local African artists and musicians.
Apple Music Hits
Apple Music Hits is launched to serve nostalgia to the music lovers. It has a catalogue of all the famous and hit songs from the 80s, 90s, and 2000s.
