Being called the "Instagram for music," musx, a hot new music sharing app, is making waves in the social media world. Within five days of its launch in February, musx reached its six-month user goal; music festivals like Bonnaroo and multi-platinum artists like O.A.R are already on board to collaborate with and promote musx.
Musx is the first app dedicated to building individual social profiles comprised exclusively of the music you're listening to. Musx allows you to easily display and share songs with friends and followers on Twitter and/or Facebook. It integrates with YouTube, finding and pulling songs seamlessly—and you can pretty much find any song. You can also draw songs from Vimeo and Soundcloud.
The app lets you add songs to playlists or to a queue to be played later. A desktop version is also in the works for the summer.
According to Musx co-founder John Reardon, nine out of 10 most-liked Facebook pages and seven out of 10 most-followed Twitter accounts are musicians. So, rather than listening to music in one place and sharing it in another place where people don't listen, the platform gives you one totally music-driven space to engage and share in one fell swoop.
Reardon shared his story with TSS, "A few years after college, we got tired of having to copy YouTube links and paste them in an email to share . . . [it] made no sense that we couldn't find, play, save and interact with our friends' latest recommendations in one place."
You can also reach your existing networks at the same time. That's why Reardon believes musx can co-exist with services like Spotify and Beats Music. "So I guess you could say we are the Scottie Pippen of music apps," he quipped.
