The Red Hot Chili Peppers have announced that they're bringing their music to Spotify, making their entire catalog available on the streaming service as of today. All of the band's records will be available, from their early albums Freaky Styley and Mother's Milk on through their blockbuster hits Blood Sugar Sex Magik and Californication to their latest album, I'm With You.

The Chili Peppers signed an exclusive deal with Spotify. The service, which launched last year in the United States, will be the only streaming service worldwide to feature the band's music. 

The announcement comes one day before the Chilis are inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame by comedian Chris Rock. The band is also set to perform at the ceremony in Cleveland.

“Bleeding Love”

Leona Lewis | 2007

In 2008, The X Factor winner Leona Lewis backed up her U.K. singing competition victory with an R&B anthem for the ages: "Bleeding Love," an international hit that became the best-selling song of the year. The track was co-penned by OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder (whose radio dominance would continue with songs such as Beyonce's "Halo" and Adele's "Rumour Has It") and solo artist Jesse McCartney, who was inspired by a former girlfriend, Gossip Girl actress Katie Cassidy. Given the song's success, McCartney didn't regret handing over such a personal track: "No, no," he said. "I'm so happy for Leona. She deserves it. There are really no bad feelings."
