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.

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.
