Tidal Accused of Faking Subscription Numbers

Jay Z caught lying about the number of subscribers to his music streaming service Tidal..?

From The Verge
According to a lengthy report from the Norwegian newspaper Dagens Næringsliv, Tidal has been inflating its subscriber totals to the public since the company was acquired by Jay Z two years ago. Dagens Næringsliv says it obtained internal reports from the streaming service that show Tidal only had 350,000 subscribers in September 2015, the same month when Jay Z tweeted that Tidal had reached 1 million users.
And when Tidal announced it reached 3 million subscribers back in March, its monthly report to the music labels stated it had 1.2 million activated accounts and 850,000 subscribers, according to the publication.
Fun Fact: The blurb introducing the story on Dagens Næringsliv reads,
"When 16 of the world's biggest pop stars, one a convicted cocaine smuggler and a former Israeli intelligence officer was not able to obtain enough customers to Jay Z's Tidal, the company began to inflate subscription numbers."

As usual the Carter's have made their super ultra fans/stans look like fools. It was Jay who coined the expression...."Numbers don't lie" and folk ran with that and made that their #1 saying when trying to explain to others why the Carter's asses should be kissed and why they belonged on a pedestal. Only problem is that idiot forgot to mention numbers can be false, untrue, fudged... blatantly lied about...depending on the messenger.

It's always a trick, a lie, or some kind of con artist game going on with these people, that always has something to do with them trying to get more coins and bleed their fan's bank account bone dry. Never genuine. If I were a fan, I would be sick and tired of them making me look like a fool all the time and lend my support to artist who deserved it more.
