A new leader has taken over Spotify.
In a company that has grown so big it has its own logo, new CEO Alexander “Bravo” Johnson took over from current CEO Daniel Ek.
Spotify is the most popular music streaming service in the world.
And it’s expanding to other markets, including the US, UK, Australia, Brazil, Russia and France.
We spoke to Spotify CEO Alexander Johnson to find out why he’s decided to make the change.
What do you think makes Spotify so special?
We have more than 1.2 billion monthly active users in over 40 countries, and we’re building a brand that transcends borders.
When we launched in 2010, the average person on earth was just starting to pay attention to the world of music.
Now we’re on a trajectory to become the most visited and listened to streaming service by the end of this year, and our global reach is projected to exceed 1 billion people by the year 2020.
What has Spotify been doing differently to compete with the big music labels?
We’re investing in our artists, and in the way we work with artists to ensure they can earn their way to the top.
Our artist community is the backbone of our business, and so we’re taking an active interest in helping artists achieve their creative goals.
We’ve also worked with Spotify to streamline the way our artists are paid.
We have a team of 100 artists, from all walks of life, and every single one is paid the same, regardless of whether they are featured on the service or not.
The first batch of new artists we’re paying our artists is about 60 percent of what they make as artists, which is very important for our business model.
We know that Spotify is one of the most valuable companies in the music industry.
We’re going to have a long-term plan to invest in our musicians.
Why are you so bullish on the future of music?
In my opinion, the music business has gone through a lot of transitions in the past couple of decades.
The major labels have been the biggest losers.
They’ve lost billions in licensing revenue and they’ve lost millions of customers, but they haven’t been able to get back on their feet, and they’re still losing money.
So what we’ve been doing is trying to find ways to bring artists back to the music marketplace.
Spotify’s unique business model has enabled us to get artists on board, get them signed, and keep them on the platform.
It’s allowed us to scale our business up and help artists earn their living.
I’ve been very lucky to work with the artists who have been at the forefront of making music, and I know they have a lot to be proud of.
What are some of the things that are different about Spotify compared to other music streaming services?
We pay artists their fair share.
We do our own editorial review process, and if an artist doesn’t get paid, they don’t get their royalties.
That means that artists don’t have to rely on a third party to pay their royalties and support them.
They have the ability to self-produce music and to make it on their own terms, and that’s what makes Spotify unique.
In the last decade, we’ve built an ecosystem around our artists that allows them to be heard on a global scale.
And in order to be successful in the future, we need to continue to expand this ecosystem.
We can’t build a new music ecosystem overnight.
But we’ve worked very hard to build an ecosystem for artists that’s built for the future.
Spotify isn’t just about making money.
It also helps artists to connect with fans and make music that’s meaningful and meaningful to them.
I’m excited to see how we can continue to grow the ecosystem around Spotify and give our artists the tools they need to make their music truly special.
What’s your vision for the music streaming business?
Our vision for Spotify is to create a new marketplace where artists can earn the best money possible.
We want to empower artists, not make money.
We also want to build a community of artists that are passionate about music and the value of music in their lives.
We’ll have a dedicated community of independent artists who are the best of the best in their field, but who also have the skills and experience to create and be part of the future music ecosystem.
Is Spotify the right place for you?
The only reason I would choose Spotify over another streaming service is if I’m a music producer, artist or musician.
We don’t offer the same type of tools that a streaming service has.
And there’s a lot more we want to do to make Spotify a better experience for music lovers.
Spotify has had a long history of working with music producers and artists to bring them the best possible music.
We look forward to making that relationship work with Spotify.
What does the future hold for Spotify?
We’ll continue to build on
