One Liners: Triller, Songtrust, Beyonce, more

By and | Published on Tuesday 25 August 2020



Music-centric video-sharing set-up Triller has announced a “strategic partnership” with Indian streaming service JioSaavn, which will see the former integrated into the latter’s app. It’s an interesting tie-up that will possibly move the JioSaavn app in the direction of Resso, the music service set up by TikTok owner Bytedance. Triller, of course, is something of a TikTok rival, currently capitalising on the latter’s various political woes in order to boost its userbase.



Downtown’s Songtrust division has hired Darren Briggs to be its first Global Head Of Technology. Having previously worked in technology roles at Sony/ATV and collecting society BMI, Briggs was most recently President and Chief Product Officer at Songspace, the rights management platform acquired by FUGA last year. FUGA itself, of course, was acquired by Downtown earlier this year.
