Lyor Cohen wants YouTube to break ‘two-horse race’ of Apple and Spotify
Posted on: 14 mars 2018, by : Stuart Dredge

Why did Lyor Cohen take the job as head of music at YouTube in 2016? In his keynote speech at SXSW today, the music-industry veteran explained.
“My greatest fear at the time was that distribution was going to be too highly consolidated between Apple and Spotify. It was scary that this could be a two-horse race,” said Cohen. “I wanted YouTube and Google to be successful in the music business in order to bring diversification to distribution.”
Cohen also provided some more details of YouTube and Google’s plan to merge their music services into a new offering, combining ad-supported and paid-subscription tiers.
