Social networking site Bebo will offer its members access to Apple's iTunes catalogue of digital music.

The two companies will reportedly announce the deal this week, according to The Independent. The move means Apple will be able to offer music to Bebo's 8.8 million users - the first time iTunes has been offered directly through a third party site, the report claims.

Bebo users will be able to buy music from musician's hosting pages on the site, the site already has half a million Bebo Bands. Bebo also has a partnership with UK digital music service, 7 Digital.

Bebo users will also be able to download Apple's weekly free song, which this week comes from fiery Latin Americans, Bone Do Role.
