The Way that Desiree Perez Saved Tidal

 

Music streaming, much like social media, seems to have a new leader every couple of months. People on social media have flocked from MySpace to Facebook only to abandon Facebook and pick up Instagram (a company that Facebook would purchase). The young teens would also put their time and energy into SnapChat as they looked for new ways to hide from their parents on social media.

The music streaming industry appears to present the same challenges for teenagers and young adults that want to make the most of their musical listening experience. Kids have bounced around from Pandora to iHeartRadio to Spotify to Apple Radio. Desiree Perez wants to make sure that the next – and final – stop for the new generation is Tidal. This is what she has been helping Jay-Z orchestrate over the last several years. It has been her desire to help him build up a brand of music streaming that will stand out from the rest that is out there.

There is no shortage of publicity that has been put into promoting Tidal. Jay has spent millions on the acquisition of this company. Some people did not believe that he would recoup the costs of his purchase, let along make a profit. Desiree Perez – after being prompted by Jay-Z – has set out to prove those naysayers wrong. She has been influential in helping Jay-Z turn his music streaming nightmare into a heavenly dream in the last couple of months.

What Desiree Perez has been able to do is help Jay-Z realize just how much talent he had under his roof. He had Kanye West waiting to drop an album. His wife Beyonce was waiting for the right time to drop her album. Rihanna was dropping a lot of lukewarm singles, but fans wanted an album. When all of these highly successful crossover artists dropped albums in the same year Dez Perez saw an opportunity.

People can download the Tidal app or go straight to the website, and they will see a bevy of exclusive content. This is what makes people curious. Desiree Perez knew that this would be the thing that would make people consider signing up. Curious music lovers would not be able to resist this exclusive music.
