Spotify in Talks to Buy SoundCloud: Report

Spotify in Talks to Buy SoundCloud: Report

Spotify is negotiating to buy SoundCloud, the Financial Times reports. Discussions between the two streaming services were “advanced,” according to the FT, which cited “people briefed on the discussions.” Representatives for Spotify and SoundCloud declined to comment to Pitchfork. Spotify has said it has 100 million users worldwide and 40 million subscribers. For comparison, Apple recently said its own rival streaming service has reached 17 million subscribers. Earlier this year, SoundCloud announced a paid subscription service of its own. In July, Bloomberg reported that SoundCloud’s owners were mulling over a $1 billion deal to sell the Berlin-based company. Twitter reportedly invested $70 million in SoundCloud the previous month.

Read our exploration of the music industry’s efforts to boost paid subscriptions, “Is the Era of Free Streaming Music Coming to an End?,” over on the Pitch.

Fetty Wap Sued Over “Trap Queen”: Report

Fetty Wap Sued Over “Trap Queen”: Report

Fetty Wap has been sued over his hit single “Trap Queen,” TMZ reports. A Danish musician named Lazar Lakic has sued Fetty and producer Tony Fadd, claiming that he “purchased the exclusive rights” to the song’s instrumental, and has not received any compensation for the song’s success: “Trap Queen,” which was included on Fetty Wap, has gone 4x platinum in the United States. Lakic is reportedly suing for the song’s profits and wants all copies of “Trap Queen” destroyed and all sales of the track ceased.

According to TMZ, Lakic said that Tony Fadd tried to buy back the rights to the instrumental–first billed as a track called “Hello”– in January 2015, just before “Trap Queen” reached the Billboard Hot 100. Lakic reportedly declined the offer.

Fetty Wap’s attorney has told TMZ that the rapper “legally bought the beat from Fadd” and has a contract as proof. As a result of his contract, Fetty Wap will have Tony Fadd cover any damages awarded to Lazar Lakic, according to TMZ.

Watch Jhené Aiko and Gallant in Dramatic New “Skipping Stones” Video

Watch Jhené Aiko and Gallant in Dramatic New “Skipping Stones” Video

Gallant and Jhené Aiko have shared a new video for their collaborative track “Skipping Stones,” which was produced by Adrian Younge and Stint. Directed by American Millennial, the video depicts a bloodied Gallant hunched up in the trunk of Aiko’s car, desperately trying to escape. Aiko has other ideas. Watch it below. “Skipping Stones” appeared on Gallant’s album Ology.

Of the video, Gallant said in a press release:

I’m really into the whole one shot thing. Even just the way that I write, I really like living into a moment. Digging into all the subtext that that moment kind of carries. I thought that this particular scene would just very naturally, in a very subtly complex way, kind of just illustrate exactly all of the fiery emotions that are coming through lyrically in the song from both perspectives.
