WSJ: Apple in talks to buy Tidal
Jay Z could be the next rapper making a big sale to Tim Cook, as the Wall Street Journal cites anonymous sources saying Apple is in “exploratory” talks to buy the music service. As to why Apple would buy, the answer could be Tidal’s direct relationship with artists, something that could bolsters Apple Music’s offerings. Exclusivity of high-profile album and mixtape releases has been a recurring theme lately, and buying out the service could arm Apple with more content that competitors like Spotify and Google Play can’t offer.
