After only one day of being on the market in the U.S., Dr. Dre's Beats Music app has already been locked up and shut down.

Apparently, with high demand comes high risks, and the company has decided to respond to the glitches in the system that were instigated by the "extremely high volume of interest" from new users following the long-awaited launch.

"Most people are unaffected but our priority is to give everyone a great experience," stated Ian Rogers, CEO of Beats Music, in a blog post. "We prepared for issues like these, have a plan, and are going to hold off on letting more people in while we put this plan in action."

Due to the setback, all users signed up for the app will be granted an extra week to add to their free trial. (This extension should keep members content for the time being and reduce the backlash.) Although the app is still available at the iTunes store for download, users who joined Beats Music on January 21 can continue to operate on the streaming service.

The length of this freeze remains unknown at this time, but Beats members can expect to be notified once all the kinks have been fixed.
