the irony of Kanye delaying his album on Apple Music to be exclusive with tidal
cc @andygreenwald Does Doug have a comment?
get the money jigga
I thought Tidal went bankrupt
That's not true. It has actually gotten 3-4 million subscribers in less than 2 years
so they could add commercials in between my tracks? Na

all your black owned companies are belong to us!!!
Lol RT @CNBCnow: BREAKING: Apple in Talks to Acquire Tidal, Jay Z's Streaming-Music Service - Dow Jones
didnt we fuckin call this bro?
COMICAL how predictable this shit is
I can't wait to see the valuation lol
same, it'll be outrageous.
I'm gonna say 750m to 1 bill. Annual revenue is around 650m so adjust val for asking to acquire
I'm changing my prediction...1.5billion
yeah approximately
+@CNBC Someone who already won't need to work a day in their life,.. will soon reassure that. #philanthropy #dreamagain
most artists on tidal make their way over to Apple Music. Why waste money?
We all saw this coming...RT"@CNBCnow:BREAKING: Apple in Talks to Acquire Tidal, Jay Z's Streaming-Music Service - Dow Jones"
dude just tried to convince me this proves Jay is a smart businessman 😐
for the rights
artist exclusive rights
Tidal's music quality is amazing
what a retarded business decision. Nobody uses Tidal. They are not a threat
You may not know how this works.
Kanye is Exclusive to Tidal so it is a threat. Beyonce too.
I know Beyoncé is exclusive, but isn't Pablo and other Kanye albums on Spotify
let's say they're buying it for the exclusive artists on there. Finish.
though there still is a huge advantage by monopoliesing a market
iight I need a quick survey cuz my mentions are blowing up. Does anyone here use Tidal?
Putting your competition out of business, no matter how small a threat, is always a positive
jay z blueprint series and reasonable doubt are on tidal only. Kanye was for 6 weeks. Beyoncé lemonade still is
Actually I thought the same until I researched the numbers. You think Apple is stupid with no team of researchers? Lol
true. I had no idea it was growing so much
Haha and they also have rights to many artist's exclusives
I fuck with tidal heavy
what's tidal
I use Tidal and I love it. It took some time but it's a good service.
problem is the initial negative publicity really hurt them. Now ppl like me have negative perception without knowing the truth
Exactly. It fed right into Apple and Spotify's hands. The proceeds go to the Artist and not some business exec.
Apple wants those exclusive tidal artists. They could care less about the subscribers
eliminating competition for Apple and more money for Jay Z
"Nobody uses Tidal..." LOL!
well, in my personal experience, I rarely if ever hear people say, "I use Tidal"
I use tidal, it's pretty good
problem is the initial negative press turned off so many people. Ruined my perception of Tidal
very true. The reason I got it was for TLOP and I ended up really liking it
then again, I'm biased because I love Spotify. Love their student discount ($4.99 a month)
Tidal's student discount is 4.99 a month too.
Tidal needs better advertising. I did not know that. The bad press really killed them in the beginning
and that's exactly the problem. People talk a lot of shit but don't actually know anything about it. They never gave it a chance
well said! It has become "cool" to mock Tidal. I'm guilty. Issue is, I was already loyal to Spotify, so I had no reason to switch
Just because you don't hear folks say that doesn't mean nobody uses it though.
Andy G you have no idea about what lies underneath. It's not about a threat it's about assets, both audio and video.
well said. They don't care about the platform. They want the rights, exclusives, etc.
artist exclusive are huge deal though.
true, that's what I'm thinking. Also, love your avi. Great movie 👌
they're doing it to get the exclusive artists that are on tidal.
Look at the top 10 streamed music on Apple Music, it's all Hip Hop. Tidal is easy target with better UI
exactly... Which makes sense
that's what I was thinking. But who's exclusive on Tidal? I mean, Kanye is also on Spotify
prince is exclusive on tidal
beyonce,kanye,rihanna prince nicki minaj madonna calvin harris jcole deadmau5
jay z & Beyoncé are exclusive ppl for tidal. Also A percent of Rihanna , Nicki , and Alicia keys I believe
I mean, Jay Z is also on Spotify
none of Jay Z's old albums are there 😔
also if apple does buy, they better add some of tidal's features that let u instantly update an album
his music isn't on Spotify. He may have an account bt none of his discography from 96-2006 are on there.
not all of his nor most Tidal artists catalogs are tho.
not all his albums tho
Prince's entire catalog is exclusive to Tidal.
fair enough. The rush for Prince's music will die off over time
short term mtv generation thinkers :jayhah2:
along with half of jay z catalog, lemonade, new English, and a few more.
i mean Jay Z Beyoncé Kanye and basically anyone on GOOD music all have 2 week exclusive time on tidal
idk why 2 weeks would be worth buying it but idk
Most buzz (and sales $$$) for albums happens first two weeks.
great point!
Now we'll see if Jay Z & Co. meant it about artists keeping music their own... or just about the $$$
because Beyoncé new album is only on Tidal. Prince & some of Jay's albums are also exclusively on Tidal.
and Prince's entire music catalog is exclusive to Tidal
for the exclusive album drops: Lemonade, TLOP, twenty88
It's because the music quality is amazing. I have Tidal
jay isn't going to do it sorry 🙌🏻

-- @LondellMcMillan hurry up and settle #Prince's estate because this is some BS. #Tidal #AppleMusic
this is stupid. I don't know anyone that has Tidal
RT @CNBCnow BREAKING: Apple in Talks to Acquire Tidal, Jay Z's Streaming-Music Service - Dow Jones
Drake is unstoppable
it's says tidal declined
"IN TALKS" doesn't mean Jay Z will say YES. TIDAL's doing very well thanks to massive exclusives like Beyoncé's Lemonade & Prince!
I'll be cancelling my subscription. “@CNBCnow: BREAKING: Apple in Talks to Acquire Tidal, Jay Z's Streaming-Music Service - Dow Jones”
back then they didnt want me.....lol
It's smart. They acquire exclusive artists, intellectual property and a new audience that previously avoided Apple Music.
+@the_AndyG Prince is exclusive to tidal..
I have to admit I LOVED my Tidal trial... If I wasn't already on another streaming service, I would have kept it...
+@WallStChatter Why ?!?! I could understand buying Spotify but why that piece of junk ?!
A scud for a dud. Who throws money at such crap? APPL must be soooo desperate. Cook is completely cooked.
