Apple's launch of their new streaming service was aided by Drake and The Weeknd.

Ever since The Weeknd turned down a deal with OVO, it's been clear that there's some bad blood between him and Drake, but between a recent hint at new collabs and this Apple conference today, it's looking more and more like they've patched things up. Both showed up for the launch of the tech company's streaming service, Apple Music, with Drake introducing its social platform, Connect, and Abel Tesfaye performing his new track "Can't Feel My Face." 

Apple Music launches on June 30th, and after a free three month trial period, it'll cost $9.99 a month. Users will have the ability to stream any and all music on the iTunes store, as well as some music videos. A radio station called Beats 1 will also be in the mix, with stations in New York, London and L.A. broadcasting 24 hours a day with hosts Zane Lowe (L.A.) Ebro Darden (NYC) and Julie Adenuga (London). 

Think this will take some business away from TIDAL?
