On Friday, Amazon announced its latest attempt to dominate global markets. The e-commerce titan will now provide its unlimited music service to 28 new countries, offering subscribers a selection of over 40 million songs.

This rollout is part of a massive global push that started over a year ago, TechCrunch reports. Last December, Amazon expanded its Prime service availability to a total of over 200 countries, and last month the company announced that the Amazon Fire Stick would be accessible in over 100 countries.
