    They do know that this is just going to cause an increase in pirating, right?

  • onehunnit

    they just want to get richer because spotify doesn’t pay them enough from royalties

    I have no issue with JayZ creating a streaming company to rival Spotify, thats fine. Spotify needs an actual competitor. But this 9.99 for lower quality 19.99 for better quality? wtf is this? don’t make the same mistake Beats made. Any song at all will loose quality if its on the computer. Saying spend twice as much as the premium Spotify for better sound quality is…dumb. If i want the best sound quality I can get, I’ll buy the fucking album. Otherwise my computer’s speakers get the job done.

    the rich get richer… I would respect him more if he donated proceeds to some charity.. then maybe I’d leave Spotify.

    Sorry J, I’ll stick with Spotify it is free because the ads pay for the service. No need for me to upgrade with Spotify or pay for something else. Spotify is the only service that comes close to Imeem which MySpace ruined.

    If you pay for Netflix, Hulu, or Apple TV why “tf” you complaining for!

  • idc

    No i know exactly what I meant, I most likely just said it in a completely incorrect way. Which is fine if you recognize that, which I just have, you probably should have as well.

    They will unify for the all mighty dollar but for a cause they stay silent. They can take their service and shove it where the don’t shine.

  • Minis3b

    Those people are not real musicians…If they were, they wouldn’t make high quality sound more expensive and all of their song should be played on high quality… ;)

    He’s jealous of Dre. This is East Coast vs West Coast: Billionaire Edition. Dre beating his net worth has got the sore loser mad for more money. yawn.

    If you’re trying to make a point and you say it in a completely incorrect way then you will be perceived as someone who doesn’t know what they are talking about. Doesnt matter if you know exactly what you meant because we are not mind readers…it’s what you say that determines how you will be perceived.

  • idc

    Point taken, next time I’ll be sure to write what I meant the correct way. But in this case as my name says…I don’t care.

  • Violet

    Huh?

  • BasedAsian

    Fair enough lol

  • Killerjoe

    But all of those are below $9.99 a month so what is your point??
