So Pandora has been running this online streaming game for years. Beats Music is the first brand that has attacked that throne. I have tried both and being diverse musically has it's benefits in all aspects. Let's get down to why you should have both unless you can't afford it or don't have the necessary storage space on your devices. Personally Pandora works wonders if you like all genre of music and don't mind not listening to entire albums. Beats Music works better when you want to listen to entire albums and are mostly into Hip Hop and RnB. Pandora works better when you're into RnB, Gospel, Spanish music, etc. Pandora still has a strong hold numbers wise but I foresee Beats Music making a strong splash after this 2014 holiday season with Gift cards and people continuing their services.
