Yes, when they say 250 million they mean tracks, not the whole album. The Life Of Pablo has 19 songs, 19x250=4,750M streams. That means that everyone of their 3M subscribers streamed 1,583 songs.ShayLaB wrote:Life is Pablo streamed 250 million times in 10 days.
250 million / 10 (days) / 3 million (subscribers) = 8.3 plays a day per subscriber
Unless I am missing something that's completely bogus.
Maybe 250 million tracks played.
Tidal is a mess but they are growing slow, but with decent numbers, they have +3M paid subscribers (1.35M from its $19,99 tier). Let's see If after The Life Of Pablo mess they find some stability.oaknuys wrote:So the Tidal rage is off again at itunes and that probably means not so many new people are using it again.

Played this on speakers and guessed 5/6 correctly. I guessed 320kbps mp3 on Dark Horse.
The shocking news of Prince's death has fans, new and old, turning to their Spotify, Pandora and Apple Music apps, only to find them barren of his hits. If you don't feel like driving to your local record store or spending money on iTunes, unfortunately, your options for listening to His Royal Badness are limited.
Last year The Purple One removed his music from popular streaming music sites, save for one: Tidal. You can stream his latest and greatest on Tidal and, if you don't have an account, you can sign up for a 30-day free trial.
Other temporary solutions include Minnesota radio station, 89.3 The Current, and SiriusXM satellite radio station, '80s on 8, which will be playing Prince all day.

Last year, Neil Young removed the majority of his music from streaming services. "I don't need my music to be devalued by the worst quality in the history of broadcasting or any other form of distribution," he wrote. Last summer, only Young's output for Geffen Records in the 1980s were available on Spotify, Apple Music, and Tidal. "When the quality is back, I'll give it another look," he wrote at the time. "Never say never." Today, it appears that Young's entire discography has returned to Tidal—albums from his self-titled debut to 2015's The Monsanto Years. Young recently announced that a new album called EARTH is coming on June 17.

For Jay Z’s TIDAL, it was the release of his wife Beyonce‘s ‘Lemonade’ LP that really positioned the platform as a plausible player.
The controversial project landed on the service first in the form of a stream and was released to retail 24 hours later. As at writing, it remains a TIDAL-only property on the streaming front.
Today, data released by the service, unveiled just how profitable said moves have been.
Full story below…
TIDAL revealed the following:
1.2 Million users have joined since the debut of ‘Lemonade’
The album has been streamed 306 Million times worldwide
229 Million of said streams came from the USA
The LP’s accompanying movie has been watched 11 Million times
The numbers are phenomenal on all fronts. Especially when considering that ‘Lemonade’ is generating figures that double, triple, and even quadruple the the averages of major releases on much larger services such as Spotify and Apple Music.
Having touted a user-base of 3 Million back in March and adding 1.2 Million into the mix now, TIDAL is showing that with the right power plays it can make sizeable and rapid gains.
The task now will be for the service to consistently engage rather than continue the “big release…then silence” strategy that has defined it since its messy launch.

True. But we have to keep in mind that her record comprehends also trial accounts while this graphic (the one about TIDAL share) don't.
