Sean Parker Sells Spotify on Jimmy Fallon

Ah. So this is why Sean Parker turned on his Twitter account this week — so when Jimmy Fallon finished interviewing him last night, he could hand out Parker’s Twitter handle to his audience.

Before they get there, Fallon asks Parker about being a 31-year-old billionaire, and Parker gives the answer he is legally required to provide. For entrepreneurs like himself, he says, “the money doesn’t even affect you so much.”

And then Parker explains the benefits of Spotify, the music service he invested in and advises. The big plus for Fallon, apparently: The ability to listen to Wham!, on demand.
