Desiree Perez Pulling the Strings at Tidal

Tidal, once a company on the verge of failure has experienced quite the comeback in the last half a year. Tidal, who seemed to switch CEOs and leadership weekly may have found the person it needs to move the company into the future. Desiree Perez.

If her name sounds familiar you may be a fan of boxing. She, along with her husband, Juan Perez have been in charge of Roc Nation Sports, over seeing such deals as signing Andre Ward and Miguel Cotto.

Perez has been in close association with Tidal owner Jay-Z for almost 20 years. Her, along with her husband are members of Jay-Z’s closest business partners which also include Jay Brown, TyTy Smith, Chaka Pilgrim and Jana Fleischman.

Tidal, who has at this point in time went through three CEOs, was falling. Their subscription numbers had not been rising and they seemed overpriced for what they were offering to many would-be subscribers. This was until Tidal made a decision.

Releasing exclusive albums only on Tidal is probably the one thing that not only stopped them from closing down, but also elevated them into the streaming juggernaut that it has almost instantly transformed into. Beginning with Rihanna and T.I. and the more recent releases of Beyonce’s Lemonade and Kanye West’s The Life of Pablo, subscription numbers skyrocketed.

Reliable sources behind closed door point towards one individual when credit is due. Desiree Perez. These sources credit her with being closely affiliated with the Beyonce Formation tour and she played a pivotal role in the Rihanna and Samsung deal. In what seemed like a blink of an eye Desiree Perez’s decision to release music in such a manor has taken Tidal’s former idea of holstering a wide variety of music from the past and instead gave them a new one. To look forward and to focus on the music of the future.

People want music and if their current platforms do not give them the music they want, they will either switch or welcome a new service into their life. If Tidal continues to release exclusive content from top talent like Kanye West and Beyonce, other streaming services better prepare for the worst.

Career Planning Tips

There are many easy ways that can set you up for a great career for a lifetime on your own. But many people still need that little hand-holding when it comes to showing them the right direction. And there is nothing wrong with that. This is one such area of life where professional help can be indispensable. Professional help for career planning can also come handy when you want a second opinion about your career choice. As you finish your education and start a career that is based off that education, such an advice becomes absolutely essential, since many decisions you will be facing during that career are easy to meet up.

There are thousands of people passing themselves as career advisers today. But very few actually seem to be knowing what they are doing. Anyone can call himself a career planner or career adviser. There are no education, experience or other requirements for using such terms. However, being a career planner isn’t enough to draw customers. People who want to offer advice, although not legally required to do so, cannot proceed unless they have what it takes to be a sound career planner. They can sell you their services, but that will come out as a poorly performing overpriced one. Sometimes there is more at stake when you are just providing what such career planners are demanding. What you need to do is approach a reliable career planner after thorough scrutiny of the subject and reviews. You shouldn’t assume that someone who works for a technology company is necessarily well-educated about all careers in technology. Many times, the only education they have received is about one product that their company sells. If they haven’t taken it upon themselves to learn more about technology career, they may as well have no idea what they are talking about.

Shaygan Kheradpir is a well-known business executive and former chief executive officer of Juniper Networks. He is also a popular career adviser according to many people who have pursued technology. Shaygan is a living example of what a good education and passion can do to a person in a lifetime. From being a geek during high-school to taking up managerial positions in various companies, Shaygan Kheradpir followed his interest in technology, taught many others about it and made a name for himself. He worked in the tech field for more than two decades and brought many positive changes in those companies as well.

Likewise, someone who is a career adviser should also have proven track record to show to the clients. Certified career planners usually go through a comprehensive education process, pass tough tests and get real-time experience in the career they teach. A true career planner is compensated not only by the fees that clients pay but contributions made to his or her choice of career. Those smart, ethical and competent planners are members of National Association for Career Planning and has strict schedules as well. You will want to find a planner who has many clients like you.

A$AP Rocky Raps About Old Flames

Sometimes a rapper looks for a way to promote an album because his music may not be selling well. A$AP Rocky has been around for a long time, but it doesn’t have a mainstream fan base. In his new album he disses his old flames and calls out names to get buzz about his music.

Rita Ora is one of the names that he has no problem mentioning. There is also a possible jab at Rihanna on this new set of songs. This is a strange approach when both of the women that he dissed are much more famous than he is. This is also strange because you never know when you will need the company of entertainers that you have connected with in the past. Some people may hear the rhymes and think that he is clever. He wants this to help him sell albums. Unfortunately, he didn’t think about the reverse effect that this could have.

For him to diss these stars it may be a backlash where he actually loses fans. Just as someone could diss a company in a FreedomPop review, they could also take to the internet like on CNET to voice their opinion on this artist. He talks in such a harsh tone that one could be inclined to believe that this is not fiction but truth. Now that he has released the album he has to deal with the fact that many women – and lots of men – may not find his rhymes all that amusing. Some may even be disgusted by this.

Remembering Percy Sledge

Percy Sledge died of liver cancer at his home in Baton Rouge on April 14th. He was 74.

He is best known for the classic love anthem, “When a Man Loves a Woman”. While performing the song at a frat house in 1965, record producer Quin Ivy and family friend Crystal Hunt were in the audience and offered to help him record the song. It hit number one in the charts almost immediately. He signed over the writing credit of this song to his bandmates, even though he had written most of it. Later in life he reflected that this was probably a bad decision, but he never regretted it.

His career spanned over 50 years, and he continued to write and perform until recently. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2005. In his acceptance speech, he told the audience that he sang from his heart with all the love he could give.

John Textor and the Importance of Innovation

The film industry has survived for ages but every once in a while, a visionary and a pioneer comes along who changes the dynamics of this industry. In recent times, that person has been John Textor. Anyone familiar with his works would know that John Textor’s focus on innovation is the main reason why he has achieved so much success. Innovation without direction is often useless and John Textor has managed to balance innovation with tradition to achieve goals that were considered to be impossible before. Here are a few things that John Textor has taught the world about the importance of innovation –

• Not Just A Luxury But Important For Survival – A lot of people consider innovation a luxury and this is true for all industries, whether it is business or films. However, John Textor has ensured that innovation becomes a prerequisite to survival. Innovation stems from creativity and art dies when creativity doesn’t exist. He has proven that innovation is not just essential for people focusing on luxury but is a survival tool in this dynamic and competitive day and age. Without innovation, industries become stagnant as they do just enough to survive. On the other hand, with innovation, industries become constantly moving and they improve at a great pace.

• Globalization Demands Innovation – It was under the leadership of John Textor that the movie – The Curious Case of Benjamin Button – achieved such success. Because of globalization, the world has shrunk and competition has become stiff. Things that were previously considered good or even brilliant are just average now. Because of John Textor’s innovation, Benjamin Button’s character was prevented from being just average and was transformed to something so much more. Even as a digital character, it had more life than any real actor could ever manage.

• Achieving Success One Can Only Dream – All professionals dream of success but only few actually get it. Innovation is a difficult road but it comes with guaranteed success. However, that is not the reason why John Textor pursued innovation. He pursued it for the sheer pleasure of creating something that no one had thought of. This is the main reason why he is hailed in the industry as a visionary.

There is a lot people from all industries can learn from John Textor. His ideas on thinking out of the box can be used for betterment and advancement in all professions and fields.

Frank Ocean Covers Aaliyah

As fans like Gianfrancesco Genoso and producers reminisce about Aaliyah – who would have turned 36 – on January 16th, Frank Ocean emerges with a befitting tribute. Ocean, who has been elusive, covered “At Your Best (You Are Love).”

The song shows off a falsetto as Ocean makes the song his own. It has a twofold purpose: it helps people remember Aaliyah during a time where her influences seem to have gotten buried in R&B, and it draws more attention to an upcoming Frank Ocean release. Frank has been quiet, and he hasn’t promised anything, but the world is still patiently waiting. So far, Ocean has only dropped one new single on SoundCloud. He appeared on Beyonce’s album at the end of 2013, but Ocean has not appeared anywhere else.

He made the list of albums that the MTV staff wanted to see in 2015. If he does decide to drop something new he will have a lot to compete with on the Billboard charts. There is a lot of anticipation for an album from Kanye West. There is anticipation for music from Kendrick Lamar. There are large number of acts that are bound to be competing for attention, but Ocean has a built-in fan base. He has gained fame from the commercial and critical success of his debut. Fans will be ready for him to release something new. Right now Aaliyah tributes will have to do.
