Google has invited journalists to a press event here on Wednesday and sources have told CNET that the company will launch Google Music then. But today Google sent a new invitation for a party it is throwing after the press event with the help apparently of T-Mobile.

The title of the invite reads "Experience the world of T-Mobile and Google."

The invite also says that the party will include live performances from such acts as Busta Rhymes, Maroon 5, Dirty South, and R3HAB. Drake is also supposed to show up.

The invite doesn't say in what capacity T-Mobile will participate.

Multiple sources told CNET that the service will feature music from Universal Music Group but will be without tunes from Sony Music Entertainment as well as Warner Music Group.

Google's Music is expected to unveil a download service as well as some kind of social-networking feature.
