Google Music launching today--WSJ

GRAND OPENING: A number of recent published reports have stated that the Google Music launch was imminent, and a story in this morning’s Wall Street Journal says the big day is today, just two days after iTunes Match became available. According to reporters Ethan Smith and Amir Efrati, Google now has UMG, Sony Music, EMI and a number of indies in the bag, leaving Warner Music as the lone significant holdout (sound familiar?). According to sources, after buying downloads from Google Music for around $1 apiece, users are expected to be able to share one or two free listens of the songs with their contacts on Google+. Maroon 5 and Drake will reportedly play at an event tied to the announcement tonight in L.A. (11/16a)
