Apple Music is Apple's streaming music, Internet radio, and artist promotion service. It was unveiled at this year's Worldwide Developer Conference earlier this month. The service costs US$9.99 a month, and subscribers get their first three months for free.

Apple built its streaming music platform on Beats Music after buying the company in 2014 for $3 billion. The deal not only netted Apple the streaming music service, but also co-founders Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre.

Pharrell announced his Apple Music exclusive on his Facebook page, complete with a short teaser for the song.
