Spotify Slams Tidal, Streaming Exclusives As “Bad For Fans”
This statement was sent to the media over the weekend by Jonathan Prince, global head of communications and public policy for Spotify:
Artists want as many fans as possible to hear their music, and fans want to hear the music they’re excited about – exclusives get in the way of both. Of course, we understand that short promotional exclusives are common, we don’t have a total policy against them, and we certainly respect the choice of artists to decide what’s right for them.
Bottom line, we’re looking forward to sharing Beyonce’s awesome new music with her millions of Spotify fans as soon as we can."
