Jay Z on Competing With Jimmy Iovine: 'I Don't Have To Lose...For You Guys To Win'

Jay Z's Tidal may have just gotten off the ground with exclusive arrangements with more than 16 major artists - including Rihanna, Beyonce, Kanye West, Madonna, Daft Punk and Jack White. But what about all the upper-tier acts who aren't involved (Taylor Swift, Justin Timberlake and Sam Smith among them)? Don't be surprised if they're a part of Jimmy Iovine's planned relaunch of Apple's Beats Music, expected to arrive in June as a subscription-only service for either $7.99 or $9.99 per month.
