    Previous reports were claiming that Apple Beats cofounder Jimmy Iovine was looking to partner up with artists and offer artist exclusive albums. However, TechCrunch recently reported that Apple Beats will now be competing with Jay Z’s relaunched HD music service, Tidal. Apparently the well-known entrepreneur and artist is the new owner of Tidal and the service will reportedly offer exclusive deals with some of the biggest artists. TechCrunch reports:

    Tidal is […] reportedly making a move to snag new releases by some of the biggest musicians of the moment including Kanye West, Madonna and Daft Punk […]

    Tidal’s plan of attack will be to ink first-window deals with the artists, where Tidal would get first releases of tracks from big-name artists ahead of any other digital streaming services.
    Apple Beats on the other hand, has offered exclusives with artists including Beyoncé, Drake, The Beatles, and more. Iovine previously stated that he was in talks with artists like Nicki Minaj, Pharrell, Gwen Stefani for exclusive albums, but we’re not sure how far along the line he is with those plans. Now, he definitely will have some competition as we all know Jay Z is very well known in the industry and has any connections and friends who are artists.

    Previous reports noted that the Cupertino-based company will be re-introducing its Beats Streaming Music service in June at WWDC, possibly as part of iOS 8.4. It has been said to have a complete new look to it with cloud-based libraries, customized offerings among much more. Let’s hope Iovine will get to his plans before Jay Z does because the artists the two will approach will most likely overlap and if it does, the artists will only choose one.
