Samsung “working on something really big” in music that Jay Z’s struggling music streaming service could play a critical role in.
Smartphone giant Samsung has restarted buyout talks with Jay Z’s Tidal streaming music service, according to the New York Post. Samsung’s interest in Tidal is nothing new. It’s had an interest in or a relationship with the 16-month old streaming music service almost since its inception, the Post notes. The smartphone maker recently spent $28 million sponsoring Rihanna’s latest Anti album and world tour. Rihanna is a partner in Tidal and is also signed to Jay Z’s Roc Nation label.
