Spotify wants to make sure that Tidal never becomes real competition. They are taking it up a notch as they have made a deal with Starbucks! Who doesn't love Starbucks?! Starbucks recently announced their latest deal with Spotify. The deal includes producing playlists for Starbucks stores, which in turn offers exposure for Spotify to over 7,000 domestic locations. This would leave Spotify a few steps ahead of Tidal. Spotify still has to get ready for the challenge of Apple Music.
