If a report published today is anything to go by, the above are words ‘Apple‘ hope leave Beyonce‘s lips soon, uttered before she leaves Sony Music to take a healthy bite into their business.
Why Columbia‘s Rob Stringer may have a fruity fight on his hands if said report turns out to be true?
After delivering her first solo album to the label in 2003, this year saw Beyonce creep towards the end of her existing contract with Sony Music, with whom she has released five studio albums to date.
Unfortunately for label boss Rob Stringer, her success with the label hasn’t gone unnoticed by their rivals, who now seek to convince the star player to kick the label to the curb and sign with them.
Impressed by the superstar’s unwavering commercial success since her time in R&B supergroup Destiny’s Child, the company are reportedly making moves to pull ‘Yonce over to the record label they are said to be building, gearing up to offer she and her music a new home.
If accurate, the company wouldn’t even have to enter the record business to add Mrs. Carter to their roster, simply coming to an agreement that would see her hand over the digital rights to her bops, making her music available on the ‘Beats‘ streaming platform, shutting out ‘Spotify‘ and any other service it deems competition.
Should Beyonce accept the reported offer, their recently announced plans to push ‘Beats‘ streaming service to every iPhone in 2015 would see her lose a friend in ‘Spotify‘, as music lovers hoping to stream her music would only be able to do so with ‘Apple.’
