Tidal Taking Desperate Measures to Stay Afloat?


Tidal execs practically giving it away in an effort to boost subscribers...

From Showbiz 411
Jay Z’s troubled Tidal HiFi is really in…trouble.
They’re currently giving away a six month subscription for as little as $3.99. If you buy one CD at Best Buy between now and Saturday night, you get the service included.
I checked the Best Buy site. You can buy Beyonce’s “Dangerously in Love,” for example. for $3.99, and bang, you’re in. Basically, Tidal is giving itself away for free.

I'm worried for this guy. He has less power and clout than MJ or Prince re: his deals and percentages on his album sales and you see what happened to them. He's not bringing in the concert sales they expected and he's allegedly overextended.

He signed all these deals in blood, so who knows where this is going...

Can you say Whitney. That last tour she did was a colossal failure. It's reported that Clive Davis had a 100 mil policy on her. She unfortunately was worth more dead.

I felt JZ already crossed the Rubicon when he went public with his support of KAP. The Carters rarely publicly supported any black ppl and their /our causes.

Possibly the breach had ALREADY been made. JZ has so much bad Cosmic Retribution coming to him. It feels like it is his time to pay devil.

Great point 9:36; Even Elvis wasn't exempt, allegedly. He was phoning in performances and missing tour dates at the end of his life. Truly worth more dead than alive. And poor Whitney...I forgot about how they worked her basically to death.

you can still get a better deal with amazon music unlimited 4 months for 99 cent. tidal (wave) probably could have been a success had it featured true independent struggling artists. it's hard to feel pity for a list mega million artists featured initially when it launched. second mistake cussing out black folks and calling us dumb niggas for not supporting this venture..instead of recognizing that there are several streaming options for folks that a lot of people were probably already committed to or just weren't feeling their service. black folks aren't obligated to support jay z. his sense of entitlement was/is fascinating for someone who is basic on so many levels.

Re: Whitney

That 100 million policy was allegedly signed pre-2000, meaning before her drug addiction really took hold. She put out two more albums after that (drop in a bucket) and went on that shitty tour (which didn't garner much). You are correct, no way she would've been able to make that back, except in death.

Clive shouldn't have abandoned her though. When he left Arista he should've taken Whitney with him to J or the other label. He knew Whitney depended on him and really needed help but all he could think about was salvaging his OWN career smh

@9:51 & 1:15

The thing about these artists is that they never have access to the original invoices etc. They are TOLD what they owe by greedy, evil ppl who pad the books however they want.

Irony. Some of the dead may not have owed those humongous bills, but were extinguished anyway. Prince had the rights idea but they salivated over his catalog and masters for years. They took him out anyway.

BTW. The drugs he took were from a bag the doctor’s son brought with him, as he was reportedly waiting his father. The father was due at Paisley the day Prince was found dead. SON WAS NOT A DOCTOR. CONRAD MURRAY DID TIME. COULD IT BE FATHER and son fixers? QTNA

The doctor and his son were never investigated and have slipped back into obscurity. TMZ had audio the day of his death in which she was asking aloud, why were they ransacking the house.

Tried pulling it up the next day, gone. No place on the entire internet. Warner Bros owns TMZ. They were not happy when he won his masters in court. I wonder how much of his intellectual property rights do they own now.

Whitney, Elivis, Prince and Michael were all druggies who killed themselves. With or without assistance. They were all great at their jobs drugs if your famous or not.

OT: TIDAL SUCKS. I GOT IT FREE FROM SPRINT AND I NEVER USE IT. IT'S NOT USER FRIENDLY AND SLOWS MY COMPUTER DOWN WHEN IT LOADS. JAY CAN'T GIVE THAT SHIT AWAY BC NOBODY WANTS IT. HE'S RUNNING AROUND DRAGGING HIS WIFE ON FILM BY ADMITTING THAT HE CHEATS ON HER. I SEE DIVORCE IN THEIR FUTURE. BEYONCE WAS ATTRACTED TO A CONFIDENT MAN NOT THIS BITCH BOY DOING INTERVIEWS WITH HIS LEGS CROSSED LIKE HE'S HAVING TEA WITH THE QUEEN OF ENGLAND.

This fat nose nigga seeing his life flash before him. Tidal 3.99, touring for 11.oo, then they want you to believe he and that miserable bitch he married to I mean handles are billionaires living in 80 million dollar mansions. The money they making right now these two serpents couldn't keep the lights and gas on in a 1500 rental. Wish Kanye wasnt so drugged out so he could see the devil knocking to collect at Jay Z's door. One of them kids might have to go because his tab is major.

Shot out to JDent for the Prince info. Isn't it interesting how news stories "disappear" when they don't fit the official narrative.
