Reznor tweeted Monday afternoon that he remains the company’s chief creative officer. Apple Inc. bought the headphones and streaming music company last week in a $3 billion deal.

Early reports last week speculated that the Nine Inch Nails leader would not follow Beats founders Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre to Apple as the company is absorbed. He wrote “YES I am still CCO of Beats Music and looking forward to what lies ahead with Apple” on Twitter. A spokeswoman with Beats confirms that Reznor remains CCO and that role will not change.

The Grammy and Oscar winner joined Beats in January 2013 when plans to enter the streaming market were launched.
