Like an enthusiastic groupie, Apple is picking up musicians left and right these days. The latest report, confirmed by a spokesperson for Beats, says the Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor will not be leaving Beats following the Apple acquisition.

Reznor was hired by Jimmy Iovine back in January 2013, joining the company as its Chief Creative Officer, and charged with helping build up its streaming music services. At the time of the hire, Iovine said that Reznor would “bring an emotional connection back to the act of music discovery.”
