Wow, Jay Z is full of shit... :-?

"Sources inside Billboard confirm that the publication is planning to count in-front-of-the-paywall Tidal streams of Meek Mill's Wins & Losses in the album’s chart total—and the potential chart ramifications are already seismic. Bible staffers are apoplectic over the lack of leadership at the top of the publication and the refusal to address the most naked example of chart manipulation in recent memory.

These free streams generate no revenue and thus equate to free goods, thus making them ineligible for chart inclusion. Also, the presence of the album in front of the paywall opens the way for unlimited use of bots to drive up streaming totals, unencumbered by accounts or logins.

WWJD? What would Janice do?"

It's crazy seeing how Jay-Z supports a man who beat up his once protégé... He swore that Chris Brown would not perform on stage again while he was alive.

Disappointed.

I was expecting your response, to be honest.

Think about it this way: If a man beat to death your mum, and your mum forgave him, do you forgive him too? Are you capable of erasing the memories of your mum bleeding and going into surgery to fix her face?

Well... There are scientific precedents of domestically abused women coming back to their abusers. Rihanna did a mistake but I won't forget what he did. And I do believe in second chances, but Chris also had issues with Frank Ocean and many other guys. He is violent, and I don't support "people" like that.

If Jay-Z really cares about her... He would not help Chris with his streaming platform. And deep down you know that Jay-Z is a business man without moral values, he even cheated his wife so... I mean, he cheated Beyoncé. Who does that?

I'm not defending Jay Z, TIDAL is owned by lots of people. Of course I can't stand that person and I'm actually surprised to see him perform there. It's just that it isn't Jay's fault there still is an audience for him. Am I glad? No, but if they all decided to move on then fine.

Deep down you can't know what I think, because you've never even met me.

Indeed. We don't know each other in real life. But I know your point of view when it comes to Beyoncé and everything that involves her life.

Anyway, it's not like Tidal is relevant and that show will have 150M viewers so I'm fine too.

Tidal Is Helping the People of Puerto Rico and Hurricane Maria Relief Efforts in a Major Way

Tidal stepping up in a big way when it comes to helping the people of Puerto Rico, which was devastated by Hurricane Maria last week.

Most of the 3.4 million people who live on the Caribbean island and U.S. territory have been without electricity and thousands have been rendered homeless due to the storm. Residents are also in dire need of drinking water, food and fuel. Cell service is scarce and hospitals struggle to operate.

"Tidal, in partnership with [New York] Governor Andrew Cuomo's Empire State Relief and Recovery Effort, has announced the start of the TIDAL X: Puerto Rico initiative with the charter of a cargo plane that will bring much needed supplies to aid in the recovery and relief in Puerto Rico," the company, which is partially owned by Jay-Z, said in a statement Thursday. "Leaving on Friday, October 7th, this first plane will carry 200,000 pounds of batteries, flashlights, portable lanterns, diapers, baby wipes, cases of water and feminine hygiene products."

The statement said the groups are "calling on the global community to help with the humanitarian crisis affecting Puerto Rico" and revealed 19 locations in New York where people can drop off unopened supplies.

In addition, monetary donations can be made at TIDAL.com/PuertoRico.

"My heart goes out to every single individual that has suffered as a result of this hurricane," said rapper Fat Joe. "Watching from the sidelines has been heartbreaking - let's fill that plane and help our brothers and sisters! Even the smallest contribution will go a long way."

Tidal's announcement comes a week after the company revealed that its annual TIDAL X: BROOKLYN benefit concert will take place on October 17 and that proceeds will go to "organizations that support relief and recovery for those affected by the unprecedented natural disasters." This includes Hurricane Maria as well as Hurricane Irma—which hit parts of Florida, and Hurricane Harvey—which devastated Houston, as well as the 7.1 earthquake that killed more than 325 people in Mexico on September 19.

The lineup includes the likes of Jay-Z, Fat Joe, Jennifer Lopez, DJ Khaled, Chris Brown, Cardi B, Remy Ma, Daddy Yankee, Yo Gotti, Fifth Harmony, Iggy Azalea and Willow Smith.
Lopez, who has family in Puerto Rico, earlier this week announced she is donating $1 million to the Hurricane Maria relief efforts. She and boyfriend Alex Rodriguez announced in late August they had donated $50,000 to victims of Hurricane Harvey in Houston.

Other celebs have also donated large sums of money to hurricane relief efforts and helped raise awareness for the issues. Pitbull even lent a private plane to transfer cancer patients from Puerto Rico to the United States.

Hi-resolution streaming music service Tidal running out of cash, may close next year

“Lossless streaming music service Tidal is reported to be running out of cash, having run up losses of around $44M last year. Jay-Z and other owners are said to have lost more than half a billion dollars in all.
Norway’s Dagens Næringsliv says that the company now has only enough cash to last it six months, raising the prospect of the service closing down by the summer – despite a $200M investment by Sprint …

Tidal claimed 3M subscribers in January, while an internal report was said to put the number at 1.2M. Research company Midea estimates the current subscriber base to be around 1M. This compares to around 30M for Apple Music and 60M for Spotify.”

Source: https://9to5mac.com/2017/12/13/tidal-ou ... may-close/

I personally believe that Jay-Z is selfish and did the wrong thing with Tidal, but I also hope that streaming don’t become a monopoly like iTunes was—even If I’m an Apple fanboy—as I want streaming to be a healthy platform for the music industry. Having Apple Music, Spotify, Deezer, Amazon Music, Pandora, Google Music, Tidal and others is great, competition is always better for us.

On the positive side, looks like we’ll finally be able to stream “Lemonade” on Apple Music, Spotify, etc 8-)

What can you expect from a person who already has a photo op of a platinum certification of his album that wasn't even out for public consumption? :lol: :lol: :lol: Every single thing in his personal life and career is about business and money.

Tidal brings its hi-fi streaming service to Apple TV and Android TV

Tidal may be running out of cash according to recent reports, but Jay-Z’s music streaming service has been on fire with shipping app updates for Apple’s platforms lately. Earlier this month Tidal shipped its iPhone X app update which added support for Apple CarPlay. Now, Tidal is coming to the Apple TV with a new tvOS app.

According to The Verge, Tidal will be arriving on both Apple TV and Android TV today. Tidal’s first Apple TV app will support both music playback and music video playback which is ideal for home theaters and entertainment centers.

Tidal has launched its first TV apps today for the Apple TV and Android TV platforms, letting subscribers access both Tidal’s entire library of music along with video content like concerts, livestreams, and music videos directly on their TVs.

Apple TV includes a built-in Music app that works with Apple Music, but Tidal subscribers previously relied on AirPlay from other devices to send music to Apple TV. Now, Tidal subscribers will be able to browse the Tidal catalog and play music and videos directly from the streaming media player.

In addition to Apple Music, Tidal joins other streaming services including Pandora which has long had a tvOS app, but Tidal has beat Spotify to the punch with Apple TV support.

I signed up to the trial yesterday and I think I might subscribe. :o I like the interface more than Spotify and the fact it has at least 6 million or so more songs than it's competitors is great. Higher royalty rates being paid out is another pro. The "suggested tracks" tab is cool and the track radio is a lot more diverse than Spotify and Apple Music. I hope they last!

^Are you serious? :o I just tried Tidal for the first time today and I thought the interface was tragic. It legit looked like it was created 10 years ago. :lol:

I'm still exploring though. Let's see what's interesting here.

Yes! :lol: I'm using the app on my Android phone and it looks and works flawlessly. There is no buffering whatsoever and it runs smoothly. I would recommend checking out many of the 'classic playlists' they have in particular "90s Pop Rock Knockouts". Also when playing a song swipe left to bring up the 'suggested tracks' screen and a list of 20 songs appear which can help you discover music.

What? It's so much better than Spotify's :o now that's tragic.

I used Rdio years ago and that one had the better interface, Spotify looked ancient in comparison.
