Good news for Apple Music subscribers: listening to your favorite Drake albums on repeat may soon get a little bit cheaper.

Digital Music News, citing two sources who worked closely with the service since launch, reports that the Cupertino, California-based company is actively considering discounting the price of its premium streaming tiers.

The price of student plans is expected to remain unchanged at $5 a month.

The rumor, if true, represents a major victory for Apple in its fight with the record labels responsible its service s content.

In March, Billboard reported that Universal Music Group, Warner Music Group, and others pushed back against the company s plans to launch a freemium service akin to Spotify s ad-supported, subscription-free streaming tier.

Digital Music News claimed earlier in May that Apple would end iTunes downloads within the next three to four years, a report that was later discredited.
