Rapper and businessman, Jay-Z relies heavily on Desiree Perez’s deliberate guidance and her ability to optimize business opportunities. She has been a long time acquaintance of Jay-Z’s for over 20 years. Desiree Perez, also known as Dez Perez, has unarguably played a major role in cultivating the brand’s revenue, growth, and momentum over the recent years. Projects Ms. Perez led were Sprint’s $200 million deal with TIDAL, a Roc Nation streaming service, that played a role in posturing artist Jay-Z’s new 4:44 Album for record high success. Sprint offered music streaming of 1 million complimentary album downloads to its customers before the 4:44 project was released.
