Jimmy Iovine will remain with Apple Music

Putting to rest all talks, in an interview with Variety, Jimmy Iovine, the co-founder of Interscope Records made it amply clear that he will continue to be associated with Apple Music.

Variety, a publication, reported that music mogul Jimmy Iovine will be staying at Apple’s music streaming service thus putting at rest all the noise in the grapevine.

“I am committed to doing whatever Eddy [Cue], Tim [Cook] and Apple need me to do, to help wherever and however I can, to take this all the way,” said Iovine in an interview to Variety.

Billboard magazine had reported last week that Iovine would be leaving Apple Music this year in August, timed to the vesting of his Apple shares.

“All this stuff you’re seeing in the newspapers, let me tell you, my stock vested a long time ago,” said Iovine to Variety.

Best known as the co-founder of Interscope Records, Iovine joined Apple in 2014 following the acquisition of Beats Electronics for $3 billion.

Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
