Dr. Dre’s ‘Compton’ is no longer an Apple Music exclusive

dr_dre_google_play_music_promotion

Dr. Dre released his final album, Compton: A Soundtrack by Dr. Dre, two weeks ago as an exclusive for Apple Music and the iTunes Store. The 14-day window has come to an end and now the album is available through Google Play along with music streaming services such as Tidal, Rdio, and Rhapsody. Compton includes sixteen tracks that run for around sixty minutes.

Plan on seeing Straight Outta Compton in theaters? The album pairs pretty well with that film considering Dr. Dre was a member of N.W.A., the group that Straight Outta Compton chronicles.
