I can't remember the last time I listened to a CD, let alone purchased one. I take that back. It was last year that I purchased Prince's 'Hit and Run Phase II and the first I did was to make a digital copy. Every with it as a digital copy, it's a pain in the butt to make sure I can access it from my smart devices. In most cases, I will listen to it from a streaming service. Many people have turned to streaming services because of the convenience of having access to hundreds of music artist at the touch of a button and the best part is most of it is free. With so many choices out there which one should you use? Well, I put together a list of my top 4 music services which I hope you can use as a guide when deciding where to stream your favorite tunes
