While the details of the deal are minimal, reports have valued the music segment at US$30bn and suggest that the IPO could raise as much as US$1bn.

In a similar move, the US$500bn parent company spun off China Literature, its digital books segment, and listed on a Hong Kong exchange.

The Chinese entertainment giant was involved in an equity swap deal with fellow streaming service Spotify in December.

Shares of Tencent Holdings Limited was up nearly 2.5% on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange.
