Yahoo is ditching its provider of on-demand music, Rhapsody, for a similar service provided by Swedish subscription-music service Spotify.

The changes to the Yahoo Music site are expected to be complete
by early Wednesday. Spotify's rollout across the rest of Yahoo will
take longer. Rhapsody had been a Yahoo partner since February 2008.

Yahoo visitors will soon be able to hit a play button and have
songs play without leaving the website, while the previous
incarnation required users to navigate away from the page, said
Yahoo spokeswoman Lisa Goodwin.

Yahoo Inc. will also create an app for the Spotify platform that
will provide original content like artist profiles.

Spotify is free on computers but users who pay $10 a month can
choose songs for playback on mobile devices.
