We’re proud of our partnership with Sonos. As their first streaming music partner back in 2006, Rhapsody helped pioneer music streaming in the home with Sonos, making it easy for people to listen to the music they love in every room. Over the years, Sonos has been among the most popular ways to listen to Rhapsody. We took a look back and found some interesting stats about our 9-year partnership:
- The very first track streamed on the Sonos platform was “Broken Mirrors” by Acoustic Junction, on July 25, 2006.
- Our listeners have streamed a massive amount of music—more than 7 billion plays since 2006.
- U2’s “Ordinary Love” is the #1 song Rhapsody listeners stream to kick-start their mornings.
- “Someone Like You” by Adele is the #1 song streamed by Rhapsody users on Sonos of all time.
