Kendrick Lamar’s new album sets Spotify streaming record

In case anyone is still wondering why Apple doled out $3 billion for Beats Music, all one has to do is look to the immense success and growing popularity of Spotify. Just this week, Kendrick Lamar’s new album, To Pimp a Butterfly, set a new Spotify record for the most streams in a single day, 9.6 million to be exact. Notably, the 9.6 million figure only includes songs that were listened the whole way through.

Indeed, Spotify records have come crashing down at a rapid clip in recent memory. In February, for instance, Drake’s latest album, titled If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late, amassed 17.3 million streams over the course of the month, setting a new monthly Spotify record in the process.

Watch Jimmy Kimmel and Matthew McConaughey film an ad for one of the few surviving video stores

There’s no doubt that Netflix has killed off a lot of video stores, both big chains like Blockbuster and small independent stores that specialized in quirky hard-to-find indie flicks. Jimmy Kimmel this week went down to Austin, Texas and visited Vulcan Video, a rare video rental store that has managed to survive Netflix’s revolution. Kimmel decided to help the video store out by filming a commercial for them and he recruited none other than Matthew McConaughey to help out. More →
