Has Jay-Z got his eye on Taylor Swift‘s record label?

All you need to know about his plans below…

Hits Daily Double reveals that the Roc Nation CEO had planned to pick up Swift’s Big Machine earlier this year after she opted not to ride on his  his TIDAL streaming wave.

The publication reports:

Scott Borchetta came close to selling half of his Big Machine Label Group to Jay Z’s Roc Nation for $135m, but that deal—which most saw as an odd fit—did not close. According to Live Nation’s Michael Rapino, Roc Nation’s joint-venture partner, his company has no interest in owning a record label.

Taylor recently got into bed with Jay’s current rivals over at Apple.

    Run for the hills!

    Jay is not a great businessman. Every time something goes wrong with Tidal, here comes Jay trying to do damage control.

    why don’t people give Basic Swift hard time for ditching country mydic for basi pop bops like they do other artists?

        Taylor Swift is white,Katy Perry is white, Gaga is white…look at them, then take a look at Beyonce. No re-evaluate what you just said.

        What the f*** does her color have to do with anything you pseudo black panther? People love Taylor and her pop progression was natural unlike most who do it for a quick top 10. Sit down.

        Opie, if I really cared about your opinion I would have asked for it. Miss me with all of that b*******. Its a well known fact that white artist are propelled. Its been that way for years.

    That would’ve been a dumb business move but we’re talking about Jay-Z here,SMH…Diddy and Dre are alot smarter when it comes to doing business

    • Carry On July 17, 2015

      Diddy actually have a college degree and Dr. Dre is really from the streets if you wanted to care.

      • Mimij July 18, 2015

        Diddy doesn’t have a college degree. He attended Howard University and dropped out. He did receive a honorary degree last year from Howard but did not formally graduate. Don’t spread lies and then try to apply it to your argument. Now everything you said is null and void.

  4. Tamartiann July 17, 2015

    Jay Z’s business ventures almost always fail. He needs to focus on Roc Nation and his FLOP roster.

NO-one is fooled with this troll account, and i’m not even going to address paramore because this is fake disguise for you. Your lil basic Chaelin Lee fave is a nobody outside of her region, LOL and ironically I bet Beyoncé has probably outsold her in her own country [Korea], In fact I’d like you to produce a receipt of that.

  7. Rosie July 17, 2015

    That’s really weird.
    Doesn’t Big Machine have more country artists though? I know Taylor is by FAR their biggest star but none of you listen to country and I’m pretty sure they have some other big artists popular with cousin-f****** rednecks that none of us have ever heard of. Just wondering.

  8. yelyaH – the alternative queen July 17, 2015

    Taylor Swift better clear her contract up and move to Columbia or interscope. Winners (sans vodka del rey) come from interscope. He’ll Katy Perry comes from Columbia

    • Rosie July 17, 2015

      Three facts you got wrong:
      •In 2015, Fad and Lana are the only two successful female artists on Interscope. Columbia and Republic are slaying now.
      •Katy is on Capitol.
      •You stan Paramore in 2015. Work on getting their album to sell 900K worldwide instead of throwing these tired ass “alcoholic kii!” drags more tired than Hayley’s roots after her 4729th dye job.

        In the UK, black artists have been pushed out of R&B. White singers like Adele, Sam Smith, Jessie J and Ed Sheeran are now the new faces of soul and R&B while black and mixed singers like Emeli Sande, Estelle, and Leona Lewis are ignored by the media. In the future, I see the same thing happening in America. Remember that Rock and Roll is primarily a combination of “African-American genres” such as blues, boogie woogie, jump blues and jazz. Today Rock is considered “white music” and Black artists have completely been pushed out. The same will happen in American Hip Hop and R&B in a few years. So thats b*******!

      • Chaelin Lee PKA CL is coming | 재 이현 김 July 17, 2015

        @MattPhagnix if you’re not from the UK, do everyone the courtesy to fact-check your receipts, because speaking as an actual Black person born and raised in London, I can tell you that the majority of black people (teenagers to young adults) listen to Grime/Hip hop, Garage/House, Afrobeats, Old Skool/R&B, with a minority listening to dancehall (mainly those with Caribbean heritage). Even as a Black person in the UK, I’m not going to generalise my race so why on earth is a cretin like you having the nerve to do so?
        Oh and ‘geology’ is the study of rock formations and the structure of the earth, LMAO you dumass so the term ‘geological’ is nonsensical in this argument.

Their parents failed through passing down faulty genes and with overall incompetent parenting. I don’t even think red blood flows through the veins of homosexuals, it’s more like some warped green oooze, similar to that of a retarded martian like yourself. You parent aren’t normal.

    • OMG Logic!!! July 17, 2015

      Emeli Sande, Estelle, and Leona Lewis are being ignored by the media because they are no longer the new hot acts. That’s what happens with every single artist regardless of race.

      And save yourself the music history lesson bull5hit. If we really want to get into detail why not go WAY back to the origins of pop music. European classical composers are the originators. Get the hell over yourself and your dramatic race tangent.

    • L21480 July 18, 2015

      Black folks collectively lost interest in rock & roll, and took most of its elements and repackaged them into R&B/Soul. Black folks weren’t pushed out of rock, we just stopped caring about it and basically let white folks have it. Then they reshaped it into something almost completely different from its 1950s roots. White rock fans have actually been generally receptive to black rockers (Hendrix, Prince, Hootie & The Blowfish, Lenny Kravitz, Fishbone, etc.) It’s black folks that look at black musicians who want to rock with an attitude and wanna snub the genre. You can’t abandon a kid, then claim that their adoptive parents kidnapped him.

    You’re also recycling that “xxxxtina” drag that idiot Anna wig or whatsover was using? Be original & try something new its been used B.C. It doesn’t really matter or effect me because she looks really good nowadays. “sings” you do know she was included in Rolling Stones 100 Best Singers of All Time & she was the youngest one included? She has an 4 Octave range(Acclaimed Vocalist & Praised by Vocalists such as Patti La Belle, Etta James etc) & has won pop vocal grammy? Pretty weird for a person who doesn’t sing lol. You stan for an unknown group Paramora & have that unknown Hayle on your avi & you actually have the audacity to come for my fave when “Beautiful” is literally more Iconic & Impactful than anything that unknown group has released. Chile I’m done dragging you from Hell to Heaven.

    Exactly girl!! I wasn’t even coming at IT as a Xtina stan, I was coming as a concerned person of colour. I’m actually irritated by the fact that a light person is accused of bleaching his/her skin to look white? Okay let’s be real some people do it because of low self esteems & our society with the influence from the media won’t go into detail but for some reason some of us are naturally light skinned, Beyoncé is naturally light skinned even her baby pictures are a proof so its really irritating for this person to claim she wants to be “white” like BISH W.H.E.T. I find it really annoying, arrogant & very stupid… Anyways done dragging that b`tch from Mariah’s falsetto to Britney’s Falsetto like.

    Haha I see the Paramore stan tried to use their ONE untelevised Grammy to drag. Haven’t they been in the industry for over a decade and they’re JUST NOW winning a Shammy? You’re bragging about that when Ariana and Lana are just now finishing their second era. Paramore is on what, album 6? Both Lana and Ari still have plenty of time to win awards, not to mention Lana already has more legitimate awards overall than them.
    Not to mention the way the entire rock community other than their emo cutting Hot Topic fans dragged them for winning since “Still Into You” isn’t even a pure rock song. Thank God Twenty One Pilots basically stole their stanbase (although they suck too).
