So you have absolutely no interest in investors or partners?
The only partners I am interested in are the content creators and facilitators – artists, record labels, artist management – people like that. I don’t care about people in the Valley, or in the technology industry. The fact that technology companies have been dictating terms of interaction with end users to content creators for the past 10 years is utterly absurd. I think that the artists and the fans need a closer connection, and that venture capitalists and technology guys ruin the opportunity to build such a thing. I really can’t say much about what’s going on, but the record labels have been utterly understanding of what I’m going through, and we are really trying to figure something out – the technology guys, on the other hand, have all tried to basically screw me over, lied to me to get information on my strategy, etc. I totally understand why the labels hate working with them!

Numair, keep doing you.
The record companies do not try to foster a creative environment which rewards musicians who serve their respective niche, but create an environment which attempts to market a small amount of music to the largest audience possible. It is more profitable for the record company to sell a few decent records in bulk than to have a vast array of cult hits that sell decently.
I’m a survivor in a business that constantly rejects you.
Google has just announced at its annual I/O conference the Play Store app installs have crossed the 48 billion mark.
More than 2.5 billion installs were made just the last month, so we can expect the 50 billion mark to follow soon.
