Netflix. Hulu. YouTube. Spotify???

Ever since Spotify first entered the market back in 2008 it's slowly been making a name for itself as the most popular music streaming service. (Sorry, iTunes.)

Starting next week, users will be able to play videos and podcasts on the Spotify App!

And we're not just talking music videos — channels like BBC, Vice, ESPN, and Comedy Central will all be offering up clips from your favorite TV shows to watch on your mobile devices.

The new service has been tested on some Android and iOS users in Sweden already, but music lovers in the UK and US can expect to start Spotify's latest feature by the end of next week.

We guess Tidal had an effect on them after all…

Lowery's suit argues Spotify knew about and willingly reproduced and distributed copyrighted compositions without obtaining mechanical licenses — fancy talk for basically arguing that Spotify played and promoted music without providing legal remuneration to the artists.

What's it all mean?

Well, this class-action suit comes in the middle of a tough time for Spotify, as the company is also in the middle of a settlement

no title

On the 1st day of Perezmas, pop culture gave to us… one major comeback from Adele!

Adele returned to music after a three and a half year hiatus, and the world was forever changed.

So how did the comeback to end all comebacks really go down??
