Tidal Pulls a Bait and Switch on JAY-Z Fans?


JAY-Z fans who just signed up for Tidal to hear his new album were in for a rude awakening...

From Hits Daily Double
Apparently new Tidal users who don't have Sprint for mobile access can't play the new Jay-Z album, 4:44, which is streamable exclusively on the service for its first week. 
Subscribers who signed up after 6/26 and use other carriers can play any other music on the service, but if they attempt to stream 4:44 they receive the following message:

LMAO! I got Sprint but I aint checking for this shit! Rob them fools Jay.

Oh well.....make something nobody wants exclusive so you have an execuse for it flopping.

I find it funny that frauds like the Carters get full free promotion for all of their scams yet real power couples can even get a best of list at the end of the year.

Am I surprised? Nope! These two are always doing extra shit to go along with their con "Artist" tricks. I'm just wondering how much crap did he steal this time, from other artist to make this album? He...just like his wife have had a long enough break to watch other artist to have figured out what to steal. They both get an F for originality. If they were original then maybe their music would be worth waiting for and getting excited about. Oh well...

Not true. I was able to stream it with no problems on Tidal.

HHIC said...

I'm pretty sure all of that was laid out on Friday. If you didn't sign up before 9pm pst, you can't stream the album. All the memes on twitter were people rushing to sign up for free accounts before it was too late...

"I'm not a businessman; I'm a business, man!"...get the paper Jay, you have two additional mouths to feed.

Not around this muffucka said...

Sprint customer here, but I got bills to pay and that doesn't include one made out to Jay. Where they do that at?

Jay scammed everyone again. Mark Ronson of Uptown Funk fame complained about this on Twitter when he tried to listen to Jay's new music. Y'all remember Tidal's previous scam which involved people canceling their Tidal subscriptions but discovered they were still being charged. Jay just trying to increase Tidal's subscription numbers probably so that Sprint will buy more than the reported 33% they've already brought. Tidal's numbers never added up. It's even being reported that Jay is suing the previous owners of Tidal over the subscription numbers. Jay's one album is not going to save Tidal and hooking up with Sprint which themselves are on life support ain't gonna workout for both of them. Jay better listen to Kendrick Lamar and Humble himself.

Such a sleaze move! Shame on those that still support him - he doesn't care about you, only the almighty dollar. he is unconscionable in his behavior. I think he's having a nervous breakdown or a serious mid life crisis.

Stop assuming y'all know business moves. Sprint is not on life support. Smh

What dummy would pay for music in 2017?

Great album though.

chevychick said...

That's not cool, his fans who, by the way are the reason he eats, can't effectively be a fan because fans keep their idols sh** on heavy rotation; however, in order to do that they must subscribe to tidal, not only that, they can't see this 4:44 sh** unless they switch to sprint?? WTF?! Everybody getting paid except the fans, they are getting effed with two d**ks at the same time, Camel's and Sprint's! That's how he does his fans? People are doing this?? Please, there's too many other artists out there!

everyone says this is a good album, i refuse to buy a jay z album so wondering those who listened to it what makes it good? some folks say because it's a pro black record, but kendrick lamar already did that last year. from those lyrics posted about him cheating on beyodel not sure how deep it could possibly be. guess i will never now lol

FAKE PROBLACK BULL SH!T said...

lol at the paid" cleaners " to borrow a term from Miss Snow....

On every blog, you will see the cleaner comments..."this isnt true, you dont know what your talking about, its a great album, sign up for tidal...lol lol...

PAID COMMENTS ARE NOT REAL JAY FOH, FAKE NEVER EQUALS REAL, AND PRENTENDING TO BE PRO BLACK AND FOR THE PEOPLE IS A SCUM BAG MOVE...JUST LIKE WHEN BEYONCE DID IT WITH LEMONADE

ITS NOT REAL, IF IT WAS REAL YOU WOULD HAVE TOLD BARNEYS TO KICK ROCKS...THAT WAS A REAL SITUATION

THIS ALBUM IS FOLLWING THE LEMONADE BLUE PRINT

WE SEE IT,

Music is free now unless you are slow with technology. Never pay for music...EVER. DON'T USE TIDAL! NEVER EVER USE TIDAL! TIDAL IS A SCAM! DOWNLOAD MUSIC FOR FREE!!!

Good album though.

@4:59 Happy?

It's okay - at least I can understand what he is saying

There is so much good music in this world. Why settle for this bullshit? Check out some independent artists or some that you've never heard before. You'll find something you like and forget all about this kind of mess. There are artists that actually want you to listen to their music without having to leap hurdles and do handstands. Give it a try.

I know this pawn slea-z has no part in this business decision. Sprint bought 33 % of tidal and can do wtf they want with his music. Poor pawn. The album ship will have sailed and his sales are gonna be lackluster on judgement day due to lack of streams... all because sprint is on life support clammirimg for new customers. Slea-z doesn't have the power he once had in luring in fans. And he made the album because live nation needs their slave to do new material on his tour. Slaveeee

Yup 3:07. Pay yourself, not Jay-Z.

I see from the comments here that y'all are over the Carter's stunts and shenanigans. I knew the magic would wear off one day.

I hollered at 3:07 screen name!!!

thats not true, i signed up today and streamed the album as well as the other 5 ppl i put on my family plan. it doesn't allow you to download it yet, so no offline play, but thats light.

I love all this all of sudden Pro-Black album bullshit coming from the same people who for album after album talked abt nothing but money, cash, hoes, selling copious amounts of fictional drugs etc.

Really shows how fucking stupid the masses of ppl are who remotely buy into that kind of shit truly are. Even Kendrick to a degree, they all have been co-opted by the Liberal Establishment to push a more overly "racial tone" prior to the election and what not to coincide with the George Soros' BLM agenda. All these dudes are working for Soros' (Billionaire, NAZI, Deep State) on the low.

Cosign, 1:51 am.
Just my thoughts, but does Mr Carter use the word nigga in this album at all? Pro black my ass.

See people? This is the reason he was offering to bail out male jailbirds on father's day.
There's a reason he has been all vocal about "black" issues so suddenly. That was all publicity for this album, his pocket money.
I can't take shit any of these celebrities do seriously. You won't milk me dry so u can laugh into the sunset on your (rented) yacht.

So basically Jay Z made an album that was the equivalent of most albums coming out of New York circa 1992? Um, okay.

Basically people try to make albums out to be on the same level as shoes; big name rapper is a brand and album a model.
And folks wonder why white folks call hip hop disposable art

It always takes black people to hate on one of their own for their business venture. boo fucking hoo, you can't stream the jay z album yet because Sprint wants to capitalize off their $200 million Investment. Guess what - I was one of those that signed up to support Hov but couldn't listen because I didn't have sprint - am I going to cry and call him a con man ? Yeh right... somebody that just bailed out fathers for Father's Day? Somebody that's working with heads of state for criminal justice reform? That's donated tens of millions to help his community? You people make me sick. Go listen to Kodak black , this Jay album ain't for clowns with crab in a barrel mentality. I'm glad to support one of hip-hop's own on his way to becoming the first or second hip-hop billionaire.- nimi Hendrix

Thanks for letting us know about this bait-and-switch tactic, Snitch. I was thinking about signing up. Glad I didnt' and probably won't now.

@9:10 you are a laughable insider "Heads of State"

@ 9:11 am a fool and his money are soon deparated. If YOU want to give away your cash to a self proclaimed billionare that's on YOU. WE don't have to support slave-z if we don't won't too. Like hater, crabs in the barrell needs to die a slow death. i'm not impressed with all that PR shit he's been doing, because he SHOULD be doing that stuff anyway. Should've BEEN doing it. Instead all he's bragged about for the past 20 years is degrading women, flooding street with drugs, and stacking cash. Oh the irony, of him being concerned with black men in jail when it was his and other rappers lyrics/images that encouraged young black men to live that lifestyle. now we supposed to be impressed because he bailing out a few of them. as stated, what jay talking about on this album has been done ad naseam back in the 90's! I bet slave-z was back then calling black rappers who were being positive corny.

Kanye has left Tidal!! I hope the news of Kanye leaving Tidal is true. Google the story, it's juicy. Jay threatening to sue Kanye if he goes to another streaming service. Kanye says Tidal owned him a bonus for getting new subscribers, reimbursements for music videos, and Tidal owes him $3million. I hope Kanye's Tidal complaints cause all of Tidal & Jay's shady business dealings to be exposed. Kanye is slowly but surely waking up out of the sunken place.

If you belive all these fake press releases then Jay is a very wealthy Business Executive worth a Billion.

WHY WOULD HE A NEED A TEN YEAR RECORD DEAL FROM LIVE NATION...LETS BE REAL....A BUSINESS MAN WOULD CUT OUT THE MIDDLE MAN...WHY PAY LIVE NATION....LIVE NATION IS NEEDED FOR WHAT...

WHY IS HE NOT A SHAREHOLDER IN LIVE NATION, WHY IS HE NOT ON THE BOARD...SHOULDNT BE HAVE BEEN OFFERED A CHAIR POSITION?

A RECORD DEAL IS AN INSULT....ITS SAYING GO SING...GO RAP...GO ON TOUR....

THIS NOW WILL MAKE 20 YEARS, TWENTY YEARS! BILLIONAIRE BUSINESS MEN ARE SIGNED TO TWENTY YEAR RECORD DEALS??

SO YOU HAVE ALL THESE BUSINESSES THAT YOU RUN , BUT IN YOUR FIELD OF EXPERTISE, WHAT YOU HAVE BEEN DOING ALL YOUR LIFE, YOU NEED A RECORD DEAL?

wow. what about the $200 million Sprint invested in Tidal. I heard that was made him a lot of money. i looked for the people he bailed out yesterday and found 0.

Anonymous said...

Jayz gave to a organization that helps bail out black men and women, not went to the jails and bailed them out himself. Why would he release a list of names, that would be pretentious as hell. Nobody has EVER questioned or expected Angelina and Brad to list the names of the people's houses they helped rebuild after hurricane Katrina. *rolls eyes*

Actually Angelina and Brad's giving has been very, very well documented.

I said nobody has ever asked them for a list of names of the people they have helped not if their actions were visual for the world to see.

I forgot to add that while I'd be willing to bet my last dime that they have a list of who they helped; my point is, "when have they EVER been asked or expected to release that list to the public"?

listen the camel put out the fucking PR news and unsubstantiated claims that he was doing something fucking great, amazing and unprecedented for fathers day, but his gay ass didn't put out no receipts while he was at it. That's very suspect. Why even say anything at all? He could've just did the shit and moved in silence like a real G if it came from the heart but he needed the public to suck his dick right before his album dropped like he's the fucking messiah when he's NOT, so you can wipe your mouth off, knock the dust off your knees stop giving his old worms havin ass that sloppy toppy now.

@11:12 I HAVE TIME TODAY, ALL DAY....YOU GET NO SPIN TODAY.....SPEND THE PROMO MONEY ELSE WHERE

IT DOESNT MATTER HOW IT WAS SAID TO BE DONE, ITS A PUBLICITY STUNT.....

JAY IS WORSHIPED IN THE HOOD IF ANYONE WAS BAILED OUT, IT WOULD BE ALL OVER SOCIAL MEDIA, BRAGGING ABOUT WHAT JAY DID

JAY Z TAKES ADVANTANGE OF HOOD IGNORANCE, ITS WHERE HE THRIVES. THEY BELIEVE ANYTHING HE SAYS
HE MARKETS AND PACKAGES HOOD IGNORANCE IN HIS MUSIC CORPORATIONS PAY HIM TO MAKE THINGS POPULAR IN THE HOOD, JAY IS A LIAR AND MANIPULATOR JUST ASK BEYONCE

HE MENT IT WHEN HE SAID MY PRESENCE IS A CHARITY

AKON is a young black entertainer that is about real change sustainable change, what AKON has done is NO PUBLICITY STUNT IT IS REAL

AKON has changed the fate and quality of life of millions of Africans through his Akon Lights Africa Project.

http://www.collective-evolution.com/2016/08/29/akon-provides-electricity-to-80-million-africans/

Akon sidestepped the political challenges and roadblocks stemming from the oil industry by partnering with a Chinese solar power manufacturer and founding a renewable solar powered energy company that is currently providing electricity to approximately 16 million Africans in 15 countries, and this number continues to rise everyday.

By late 2017, it is estimated that Akon Lights Africa will be providing electricity to 80 million Africans. There are currently 600 million Africans in remote areas who have no access to electricity.

Akon’s company is the fastest growing solar powered electricity provider in the world. His efforts and contribution to the African people are undeniably astonishing, staggering, and game-changing. His project is profoundly influencing the future of Africa and through this example, clearly setting the stage for the shifts to come to our energy infrastructures.

EVEN RIHANNA IS TAKING EFFORT TO MAKE REAL CHANGE
IN THE WORLD....

IM STILL WAITING FOR A NAME ....

@10:19 The best comment on this blog. They do need to grow up and find some common sense too. It's ridiculous that you want to dog out this black man that has done more than them for the community and at the same time lapping up products made by the white man. Willie Lynch syndrome if you ask me. I bet they have an iPhone in their hand while standing in line to by Jordans.
