With a little help from my friends – Jay Z’s Re-launch of Tidal
You may have already heard of the music streaming service Tidal, but you are definitely about to hear a whole heap more! Jay Z’s recent acquisition of the $56.2 million Swedish company Aspiro, and its streaming site Tidal is causing a stir all over social media.
With a little help from his friends, Jay Z is re-launching the subscription only platform, which will set you back £19.99 for a monthly subscription to ‘Tidal HiFi’, but you can get the basic ‘Tidal Premium’ for £9.99 per month which now matches it’s competitor Spotify.
However the ‘basic’ Tidal gives you standard quality audio, if you want the “lossless high fidelity” sound that Tidal prides itself on, you’ll need to purchase the £19.99 “Tidal HiFi” membership.
Along with a host of wealthy artist friends, the rapper Jay Z has vowed to create the first major artist-owned streaming service. Announcing Madonna, Kanye West and Rihanna as joint Tidal owners, along with a long list of other well know pop stars.
