This deal will allow for YouTube to host songs from each of the labels in hopes to bring more content to the streaming service and sway more people to turn towards YouTube instead of Spotify or Pandora.

Since YouTube has been battling with copyright laws with music for quite some time now, the launch of this new service YouTube Remix and the label deal now in effect YouTube will no doubt convert this new service into a paid subscription to then not only strengthen the already made relationships with labels but also to attract new ones.
