Tidal reaches 3 million subscribers thanks to Kanye

Thanks to a high-profile album launch by Kanye West, HiFi streaming service Tidal now claims 3 million subscribers.
45 percent of the subscribers pay for the $19.99 per month, hi-fidelity, lossless audio/video tier with the rest paying for the standard $9.99 tier. The regular tier grants access to 40 million tracks and over 130,000 music videos including exclusives and original content.

Tidal can thank Kanye for the jump in subscribers. 'The Life of Pablo,' which was made available exclusively through the service in February, topped 250 million streams in its first 10 days of release, a very significant figure.

Hmmm........Tidal is black-owned.

Kanye is black.

The bulk of the people that listen to AND BLINDLY SUPPORT the jagoff that is Kanye are black and they do so simply because he's black.

He only attacks white artists when he doesn't get his way.



See a pattern here of ignorance perpetuating itself???

I do!



Sadly, these two entities are all about the benjamins.

not only are you wrong but you based your entire premise on race .. do i see a pattern here? I do !
The only fact in that whole so called statement is that kanye is black lmfao.
let me get this straight someone you hate has a platform that people who like them can go to and pay them and listen to what they like and you absolutely hate it. But since you have nothing else to combat your blind hatred you use race as the excuse .. sad , pitiful and very very petty of you.

Who Owns TIDAL?

TIDAL is an artist-owned coalition. The founding TIDAL artists are Alicia Keys, Arcade Fire (Win Butler and Regine Chassagne), Beyonce, Calvin Harris, Chris Martin, Daft Punk, Deadmau5, Jack White, Jason Aldean, J. Cole, Kanye West, Madonna, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, Shawn “JAY Z” Carter and Usher. so much for black owned .

They might all be technically "owners" (not really), but this company was founded and run by Jay-Z with only "HELP" from the others so I'm not wrong you putz! He is the mastermind, the decision maker......PERIOD!

Additionally, anyone that pigeon holes their head into thinking that patterns don't exist among the variety of cultures, races and nationalities is DAMN FOOL so pipe down! Whether those patterns are good or bad, predictable or not, they are still patterns.

ANYTHING that Kanye supports is terrible and as a result, has even less value.

NEVER said the word "hated" and only expressed total dislike for Kanye who ISN'T THE OWNER. Nice way to rally a story in your favor

I'm bettin' my ass you're black.
