Tom Warren for The Verge:
The YouTube and TV ads debuted two days ago, and it’s already amassed nearly 5 million views on YouTube alone. I’ve had it on repeat ever since. I’d normally drop a fancy new song into a playlist on Spotify, but Anderson .Paak’s Til It’s Over is nowhere to be seen on the rival streaming music service just yet. That’s not the case with Apple Music, where you can happily stream the latest single until your heart’s content.
I haven’t cared about Drake or Chance the Rapper’s Apple Music exclusives in the past, but there’s something about this latest Anderson .Paak track that gets my feet moving (almost) like FKA twigs’. It’s the first time I’ve felt like I’m missing out not having an Apple Music subscription, and that’s exactly how Apple wants me to feel. That makes Apple’s HomePod advertisement a clever Apple Music ad in disguise, one of Apple’s latest masterstrokes of marketing.
Interesting that the song choice maybe more strategic in choice then first thought.
