He is also credited for securing exclusive releases from Chance The Rapper, including the Grammy Award-winning album, "Coloring Book", for Apple Music. This person is no other than the Head of Artist Curation for hip hop, Carl Chery. Basa left Spotify last month after serving the company for three years. However, it looks like he'll be taking his talents over to a competing streaming service. It turns out the Swedish company will soon be stealing one of the most valuable people that helped Apple Music rise.

Recent news surfaced of a serious loss for Apple Music that will likely affect its performance.

We already know Spotify is a few steps ahead of Apple Music in terms of subscribers and popularity.
