Bacardí Donates Studio Time Through Spotify Link Up

     Through Bacardi’s partnership with music trio Major Lazer, Bacardí has teamed up with music streaming service Spotify to donate studio time to aspiring Caribbean artists.  This is part of Bacardi’s new Music Liberates Music program.

    Here is how it works, every time fans play Major Lazer’s new track Front of the Line, featuring Machel Montano & Konshens, Bacardí will fund studio time, with 50 plays the equivalent of one second.   Bacardí says this will soon add up, considering Major Lazer has notched up more than 40 million plays – the equivalent of 222 recording hours.  The recording time will be donated to emerging musicians from across the Caribbean.  Bacardí announced the year-long collaboration with Major Lazer in January, with the Sound of Rum creative partnership aiming to bring fans of reggae, dancehall, soca, hip-hop and electronic music together.

     I like this program because it is set up to work where Bacardi lives, in the Caribbean, and Spotify is readily available for free.  Keep up the good work.
