Sprint To Buy Parts Of Tidal

TIDAL has sold 33% of its stake to mobile phone carrier Sprint, a deal worth roughly $200 million. JAY Z and all of the original owners will remain with a stake in the streaming service and the app should be broadcasted to all 45 million of its customers soon. Also, Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure will join the TIDAL board of directors.

The best part of the deal for TIDAL is the fact that they will have a “Marketing Fund” that is estimated at about $75 million, for the sole purpose of artist initiatives and exclusives.

“Sprint shares our view of revolutionizing the creative industry to allow artists to connect directly with their fans and reach their fullest, shared potential. Marcelo understood our goal right away and together we are excited to bring Sprint’s 45 million customers an unmatched entertainment experience.” – JAY Z

Jay-Z Returns To Spotify Music


Rap icon Jay-Z brought his music discography back to the world’s largest streaming platform Spotify, leaving Tidal subscribers scratching their heads. The service he bought for $56 million in 2014 has struggled to gain any real market share against major players like Spotify, Apple Music and Amazon Music.

Is it genius marketing for the Tidal owner, or does this show he’s throwing in the streaming wars towel, as his company continues to struggle with growth?

The Breakdown You Need to Know: Even with Tidal’s exclusive music offerings and a $200 million investment from Sprint, it still doesn’t seem to be enough to keep the ship afloat, and Jay-Z may be jumping off the boat.

Jay-Z has been a vocal critic of tech companies in regards to the issue of compensating artists, so it’s a bit odd that he’s back in bed with them. Especially, when you consider Tidal markets itself as a “more equitable [business] model for artists” to make money while streaming their music.

In the beginning it was all good at Tidal, with artists like Beyoncé, Kanye West, Madonna and Chris Martin to name a few, who all had an ownership stake in the company. Each of the artists reportedly were given 3% equity in the platform, with Jay-Z holding the remaining stake.

The onset of streaming has poured new life into the music industry, with revenue hitting $5.4 billion earlier this year, $4.3 billion just from streaming services. Apple Music and Spotify boasts 113 million and 60 million subscribers respectively, which is massively hard for Tidal’s 2016 self-reported 3 million subscribers to compete with.

Also See: Tidal CEO Steps Down

Tidal’s offering is the most expensive option on the market at $20 per month. Amazon Music and Apple Music come in at $14.99 and $9.99 respectively, just another reason subscribers have been few and far between for Jay-Z’s company. They have tried other ways to grow subscribers by heavily discounting its subscription service for first responders. So if you consider yourself to be a hero, the company was offering a 40% discount for its Premium and Hi-Fi plans.

Jay-Z seems to be taking a “if you can’t beat them, join them” approach to music streaming and social advocacy. Let’s not forget he has now partnered with the NFL on it’s social justice mission, while also curating their halftime show.

Tidal CEO Steps Down


Jay-Z may recently encountered some problems with Tidal with his CEO Andy Chen stepping down. JAY Z’s music streaming site TIDAL is still afloat in recent news as CEO Andy Chen leaves and steps down from his title with Aspiro Group, the company that JAY Z recently acquired for TIDAL and WiMP.

TIDAL’s new interum [sic] CEO is Peter Tonstad – a former CEO of parent company Aspiro Group. He has a better understanding of the industry and a clear vision for how the company is looking to change the status quo. He’s streamlining resources to ensure talent is maximized to enhance the customer experience. 

We’ve eliminated a handful of positions and refocused our company-wide talent to address departments that need support and cut redundancies. TIDAL’s offices globally will remain and grow: we are already hirinig for several new positions now. We’re excited about our future and what’s in-store for fans who want the best listening experience.

Square, the mobile payments company led by Mr. Dorsey, announced on Thursday its plan to acquire a “significant majority” of Tidal, the streaming music service owned by Jay-Z and other artists — including Beyoncé, Jay-Z’s wife, and Rihanna, who is a client of Jay-Z’s entertainment management company, Roc Nation.

Will Jack Dorsey Purchase Tidal?

 


Since purchasing Tidal for $56 million back in 2015, Jay-Z has made the streaming service a big contender in the music industry. But it could be that Jay-Z is considering handing-off a majority stake in the company. The rapper has reportedly been in talks to sell the site to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and his Square Inc. payment company.


As reported by Bloomberg, Square Inc. is looking to “diversify” their assets with the purchase of Tidal. The streaming service hasn’t publicly released their year-end figures since reporting they had 3 million paying customers back in 2016, but Jay-Z’s move to put his music back on Spotify has led some to question the longevity of the platform.

Listen To Portland/Oakland Artist TOPE's New Single "Never Told You" | @itsTOPE


Bay Area-based Producer and Rapper TOPE returns with his second official single of 2018 “Never Told You.” Following up the all-star collaboration featuring Abstract Rude and Blu on his first single on 2018 “Faithful,” TOPE switches lanes on “Never Told You” recounting the some of the tribulations of having his entire music library stolen at a show in San Francisco in 2017. Pressing re-start on his once buzzing career, TOPE moved to Oakland from his hometown Portland, OR and soon after had his laptop and other personal items swiped at a show, leaving the up and coming Producer with no backups of all the music he had created in the last 4 years – including demos versions of all TOPE’s new self-produced singles.

“I never told you ’bout the time I almost gave up on myself” TOPE admits over eerie chords and synth work all played by himself. A rare honest and vulnerable moment for a rap artist as TOPE admits how close he truly was to quitting on his dreams. 2018 has seen a resurgence in TOPE’s career again with a successful run to SXSW as well as recently produced for Slum Village, Gift of Gab of Blackalicious, Skyzoo, and more.


“Never Told You” marks a growth not only TOPE’s mindstate but also his production, marking the first sample-free beat TOPE has released and rhymed over. In case you missed it be sure to press play on the Gospel-influenced song “Faithful” featuring underground legends Blu and Abstract and also check out the latest “Never Told You” from rising Bay Area musician TOPE.

Jay Z Talks Tidal, Jimmy Iovine, And Rewriting The Music Rulebook

Jay Z doesn’t give many interviews. In conversation, he often pauses mid-sentence, considers, rewinds, slices and reshapes his answer, choosing a more appropriate word or analogy that draws a finer point before revealing it to the interviewer. What’s commonly assumed is a mistrust of the press may just be that unlike his work in the studio or onstage, Jay Z doesn’t ultimately control the final result of an interview, and therefore treads more carefully while giving one.
