Maybe, Jay-z Should pay more Designers than marketing campaign ?

It solves the wrong problem. Period. And it continues to disappoint me that major artists are so blind to where their money is actually going. Spotify isn't the villain, it's your record label. It's the way music is being owned and distributed. So, instead of jumping on stage with a bunch of other high-profile artists to celebrate charging $20/month, how about you take the ownership of your music back, and embrace a distribution platform built for the 21st century. /rant.

@taykcrane I agree Taylor. Labels should be the real target.
A massive potential, and quite a big start with this whole blue profile pictures campaign on social media. But I feel like while the value prop to artists is rather clear, the one for end users isn't.

Very interesting to see them livestream their launch: To be honest, and I don't mean to sound like a hater, but the announcement feels like they're trying too hard. Last week @eriktorenberg and I did a live AMA with @kayvz, @jess, and @a_wass (see @ow's coverage on TNW). We're considering doing more of these with high profile launches and makers. Shoot me your thoughts on Twitter or email (ryan at producthunt.com).

Agreed. The press conference felt very overdone, and honestly, a bit cringey.
@danlev a bit cringey? Look at this video they made. It's horrible:
They really need to allow users to do this 30 day trial without giving a CC, then require it once the trials over. It's an annoying barrier to entry otherwise.

@ghobs91 That's the only reason why I didn't try it. Seems like some funky business choices were made.
