Music is everywhere but not in the same places as before. You have streaming companies bidding against each other using certain artist to build their brands. Never thought I would see the day, but then again this is the music industry. With the illegal downloading going on, it's harder to sell music, but is music streaming the way?
What if the artist I want isn't on your service? Do I purchase another service just for that artist? All these exclusive releases make it hard for a music lover to choose between Tidal, Spotify, Beats 1 and more! Fourth of July is a great example:
With this new Spotify exclusive from Jay Rock, the streaming war is in full swing. Lil Wayne released his long-awaited new project Free Weezy Album exclusively through TIDAL at midnight today (July 4), Eminem gave the world “Phenomenal” and Pharrell gave us “Freedom” both exclusively through the newest service Apple Music; the popular new radio show Beats 1 via Apple Music has officially launched and Dr. Dre’s new show is premiering today.
