To understand Beats you need to understand Lady Gaga Medium -- The 360 deal is reminiscent of a VC investment model where a label invests more money up front in exchange for a piece of merchandise sales, touring revenue and other earnings that artists had long kept for themselves.The HBR Lady Gaga (B) case study notes that as early as 2009 and 2010 Lady Gaga already had multiple consumer brand partnerships, including:Beats by Dr. Dre selling branded Heart Beats model of the $100 in-ear headphones as undeniably unique and likely to attract fashionistas far and wide. (The story is much bigger here than this specific deal.)Virgin Mobile sponsoring the U.S. tour dates of the Monster Ball tour.Polaroid, which appointed Lady Gaga as creative director for a special line of products that would be released in the coming years.MAC Cosmetics for which Lady Gaga joined 1980s pop legend Cyndi Lauper as the latest celebrities to feature in MAC Cosmetics Viva Glam advertising campaign.In 2011, Amazon launched a promotional campaign selling at a loss Lady Gagas album Born This Way, essentially subsidizing distribution of the new album.In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Gaga was asked whether she believed that Born This Way was worth more than 99 cents. I would die to know who bought my records on iTunes or bought my tickets on TicketMaster.Jimmy Iovine sees the opportunity in changing the game and building a communication between a fan and an artist. In other words Beats Music is not yet another streaming service designed to sell music, but a platform for artists to build businesses and sell everything but music as Troy Carter says.That brings us all the way from Gaga to Uber, where Troy is an investor. Or like Apple App Store, which connects users with app developers allowing them to build business on top of the platform.Pandora, Spotify, Play Music and Amazon that are all designed to sell music, will have very hard time to compete against a platform for building businesses on top of music.
