BBM Music, BlackBerry's (BBRY -0.4%) quixotic attempt at creating a "social" subscription-based music service, is set to shut down on June 2. BBM, launched in 2011, costs $5/month, allows users to download 50 songs upon subscribing, and gives them access to the 50 songs downloaded by any invited BlackBerry contact who also joined. With plenty of subscription-based alternatives offering immediate access to huge libraries, few consumers bought in.
