Dez is taking her time to make sure that she can give music fans something that is a standout from of the other music streaming services that are out there. Competition is definitely heavy, and it is going to take something that other companies do not have to make Tidal number one. Fortunately, all of the exclusive content that is being offered by this company is giving Shawn Carter and Desiree Perez the competitive advantage that is needed to draw in loyal customers. There has been a battle with the music streaming industry with lots of artists like Taylor Swift and Adele. These are women that do not feel like they’re getting the proper royalties for the music that they make. People are streaming the music that is being played, but many streaming sites are offering a small payoff. Taylor Swift has gone as far as taking all of her music off of Spotify. Lots of these artist have a problem with other websites like YouTube as well. Music streaming has become something of a fickle business, and many artists feel like they are not getting the proper due. What Dez Perez realizes is that she has to work with the artists and make them happy before anything can be done to make the customers happy.


That is why is there so much talk about how she has negotiated contracts for concerts that could also be shown on the Tidal website. She has helped artists get a lot more for the concerts, and this content can become exclusively shown on the Internet is order to secure reoccurring profits. There is lots of talk about an Apple buyout. When Apple wants to buy your company there is a strong chance that you’re doing something right.
