Jay-Z has heard your grievances, nay-saying, and general hate and he decided to give you all some vital information via Twitter(@S_C_). Y’all must have really hit a nerve because Mr. Carter rarely tweet so this is an rare. Hov had the following to say:
Tidal is doing just fine. We have over 770,000 subs. We have been in business less than one month. #TidalFacts
We are here for the long haul. Please give us a chance to grow & get better. #TidalFacts
There are many big companies that are spending millions on a smear campaign. We are not anti-anyone, we are pro-artist & fan. #TidalFacts
We made Tidal for fans. We have more than just music. We have video, exclusive concerts, tickets for events early, live sports!…
….Tidal is where artists can give their fans more without the middlemen. #TidalFacts
Indie artists who want to work directly w/ us keep 100% of their music. “If you don’t want the CEOs all in the videos” haa #tidalfacts
Tidal pays 75% royalty rate to ALL artists, writers and producers – not just the founding members on stage.
Rich getting richer? Equity values… YouTube $390 billion. Apple $760 billion. Spotify $8 billion. Tidal $60 million. #TidalFacts
Our actions will speak louder than words. We made Tidal to bring people the best experiences…
and to help artists give that to their fans over and over again…
We are human (even Daft Punk ha). We aren’t perfect – but we are determined. #TidalFacts
Tidal launched in March, and I’ll be the first to say that I was skeptical about the whole music streaming thing what with Spotify and Pandora out here dominating,but the thing that might make me switch is the promise of exclusive content namely an exclusive Bey & Jay joint album. There is no way the hell I would be alright with not having first dibs on that music. I have been using Tidal for the free trial period and I like it so far. Of course there are some kinks that need to be worked out and some music missing, but I am sure all of that will be worked out with time. What I won’t me purchasing is the HiFi service, I’ll opt for the cheaper option.
Y’all really pissed Jay off #TidalFacts, he went all Mad Rapper on y’all LOL!
Whut say you?
