UPDATE: Jay Z, noted owner of Apple Music's streaming service competition Tidal, appeared on Ocean's new Beats 1 show to discuss technology, radio and releasing music. "I think with all the technology and where we are today, it’s definitely a more efficient way to get music out," says Hov. "Because it's the whole idea behind having a festival that played all sorts of music. Because no one listens to music like that -- you just listen to music more than ever. Back in the days, there used to be hip-hop clubs. Now every club is a hip-hop club."
He adds, "It’s unfortunate because with technology and everything moving forward, it should be a better way that the music, the musicians, radio, and these things that are supposed to be instruments for the arts, should exist. It shouldn’t be about advertisement."
