WILL APPLE EXCLUSIVE AFFECT DRE AT OTHER RETAIL, E-TAIL?

Is the two-week Apple Music exclusive on Dr. Dre's Compton affecting its availability via other outlets, both digital and physical?

Word has it the album will not be available on Spotify, but several observers say this has less to do with Apple than with Spotify's policy of not offering music for subscribers only (as is the case with Taylor Swift's 1989). The same may apply to other subscription services with a free tier, but this remains to be seen.

Meanwhile, insiders say Target will most likely not carry the album for the time being (the retail giant famously refused to stock Beyoncé's surprise album after its iTunes exclusive).

A clean version is available on iTunes, so presumably it is eligible to be carried at Walmart and other family retail. Stay tuned for updates.
