How to Add Apple Music to Final Cut Pro

Does anyone know how to import Apple Music tracks saved to My Music in iTunes to Final Cut Pro X? Dragging to the timeline looks like it works but you can't see any sound waves and when you playback, there's no music.

Final Cut Pro is a series of non-linear video editing software programs first developed by Macromedia Inc. and later Apple Inc, which allows users to create and edit videos. In Final Cut Pro, you can add music to enhance your video; such as using music to play in your video's background or during the opening and closing credits. Music files from iTunes library or stored on your computer can be added to your project in Final Cut Pro. But this does not extend to the streaming music, such as Apple Music or iTunes M4P songs.

In fact, you are prevented from copying Apple Music songs to Final Cut Pro and other media devices because all the music tracks in Apple Music are protected by Apple's technology. So the most important thing to add Apple Music or iTunes M4P songs to Final Cut Pro is to find a tool to record Apple Music streams. Here comes the rescue.
