If you had to describe Jay Z in one word from a business sense, how would you describe him?
Fearless. The man is fearless. There’s not a challenge he won’t attack. He and his partners, all of them, approach the business in a very fearless manner and I believe that that has been one of the keys to our success.
Jay’s most recent venture, Tidal, has gotten off to a rocky start. Has that impacted your business at all?
No, I mean listen. First of all, Tidal is going to be extraordinarily successful. When you’re building a brand you always have challenges. The progress that Tidal has made in a very short period of time has been absolutely incredible. The best has yet to come. Remember, in life everything is like a nine-inning ball game, to use a sports phrase. And we’re still in the first inning with Tidal. The Tidal X: Jaÿ-Z B-sides concert was an amazing, amazing story for Tidal. The two concerts that Jay did for subscribers as part of our Tidal X were absolutely incredible. I was there on a Sunday night and I’ve never seen anything like it. That’s just one small example of what Tidal will offer, that no one else can. The best has yet to come.
