Although only a week into the new year, Spotify has graced our pages several times in that short span, as the streaming giant not only got hit with a whopping $1.6 billion USD lawsuit but also filed its IPO. The music provider is back with yet another important announcement, which sees its now-former chief content officer Stefan Blom exit the company.
