Apple is reportedly buying TIDAL, this would be awesome for exclusives!!!
"According to a new report out of the Wall Street Journal, Apple is in talks to acquire Tidal, the Jay Z owned streaming service. While specific details are unclear at this point, Apple acquiring title would give it an incredible leg up when it comes to negotiating for exclusive streaming rights.
Tidal is currently owned by Jay Z and a variety of other artists, including Kanye West, Beyonce, Chris Martin, Jack White, and many more. Negotiations between Apple and Jay Z are reportedly still early and “may not result in a deal,” according to the report.
Apple is interested in Tidal because of its strong ties to artists, many of which are owners. Tidal has secured the exclusive streaming rights to a handful of notable albums in recent months, including Beyonce’s Lemonade and Kanye West’s The Life of Pablo."http://9to5mac.com/2016/06/30/report-ap ... /?pushup=1
