It seems that BBM Music is slowly being prepared for mass market launch, as it has been spotted in App World today. The app is still Beta Zone-only & requires a keycode, but it's quite simple to download now.
With a Period End Date of late September, maybe we are merely weeks away from launch?

As most of have heard by now, RIM has released the new BBM music feature into the hands of Beta Zone members on a invite only basis. If you happen to be a contact of one of those lucky Beta Zone testers you will see in their profile information that they are indeed using the app. Status updates will also show that they have used the BBM music feature. As seen in the screenshot above, when you click on the BBM Music yellow download arrow it asks if you want to download the BBM Music app from App World. Well, of course when you go to App World it's not available just yet, but this is a great sign that RIM has prepped the access for us to easily reach this app within BBM. Are you one of the lucky Beta testers? Let us know what you think of BBM Music in the comments!
