Fresh Friday. We’re feeling the freshness today SOHH why not get things going with Spotify really going at its competition by going public? Speaking of big things, how about Game and Cardi B proving their fans’ loyalty is truly skin-deep? With West Coast vibes on your mind and the Academy Awards going down Sunday night, are you down to kick back and watch an exclusive clip from the upcoming Gringo flick brought to you by SOHH.com? All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.
1. Respect The Technique
Is Spotify really going to make it hard for Apple Music and TIDAL to compete in the near future? Turns out the streaming giant wants to really blow up even more despite having the most subscribers in the game by hitting the New York Stock Exchange which could mean the sky’s the limit for its growth and shares. CNBC is on it:
The company will begin trading on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker name SPOT. According to the company, shares have traded as high as $132.50 on private markets, which would give the company a valuation over $23 billion based on ordinary shares outstanding as of February 22. Spotify is the leader in streaming music services globally, with the company reporting 71 million paying subscribers and more than 159 million monthly active listeners (MAUs) as of December 2017. It is available in 61 countries and territories. Its closest competitor, Apple Music, is far behind at 36 million subscribers. (CNBC)
Could this put Spotify ahead of its competition forever? Are you with the streaming giants wars? Think Apple Music or TIDAL will eventually catch up? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
2. Loyalty First
They might not be the biggest selling musicians in the game but Cardi B and Game both have proven their fans will go to extremes to show their loyalty – even if it means putting their bodies through some ink needles. Their IG pages are all on it:
I wake up in Vilnius, Lithuania today & the 1st thing I see is this picture. I was just a little boy from the projects…. never thought in a million years, anything I would ever do in life would touch anyone in my own city let alone across the globe. I’ve always said that I share fans with no other artist in the world & this is a reminder of how true that is. Over the years I’ve seen so many tattoos with my face, logo or lyrics & every time I see a new one I feel like I did when I saw the 1st…. surprised, so appreciative & honored to have touched people on that large of a scale….. My fans are THE GAME fans & I’ve always dedicated my music & my life to them & my children. I am where I am in life because of a decision made by each of you individually to support me year after year & for that support I will give you the same love & loyalty for as long as I breathe. I am forever grateful & indebted to you all…… Thank You, sincerely Hurricane Game #45
Is this all the proof you need? Is that Game tattoo too much? Think more ink jobs are going down as they both gear up to release new projects? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
3. Gringo Exclusive
It’s still pretty tough out there for people to grab tickets to see Black Panther – easily the best movie of 2018 and could remain that way at least until Avengers: Infinity War comes out April 27. But while the superhero movies keep generating big bucks, there’s always space for some good ol’ fashioned comedy. SOHH.com has an exclusive clip from the upcoming Gringo movie:
Think this movie could do numbers? Do you have high expectations? Are you in for the comedy joy ride? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
