★ Jay-Z calls out Apple Music on his new album


Business Insider:

In the song “Smile,” Jay raps about his beef with Apple and the streaming music industry as a whole:

“F— a slice of the apple pie, want my own cake / Chargin’ my own fate / Respect Jimmy Iovine / But he gotta respect the Elohim as a whole new regime / And n—– playin’ for power, huh / So our music is ours”

But Tidal has struggled to grow its business and faced numerous setbacks over the past couple of years, and Apple was rumored to be eyeing a takeover last fall.
