DJ Skee recently broke the news that Jay Z and Beyonce will be putting their joint album out through TIDAL.
A new report from DJ Skee suggests that Jay Z and Beyonce's rumored joint album is "nearing completion" and it'll be offered as a Tidal exclusive upon release. Such a move would easily be the biggest thing the service has offered, but whether it will pay off is yet to be seen.
Tidal itself isn't doing as well as predicted.
Two weeks after Tidal briefly cracked the U.S. iPhone top 20 download chart, the app has crashed out of the top 700. Apparently American consumers have limited empathy towards Beyonce and Nicki. Soon after the launch fiasco, Tidal’s CEO was kicked out in a “streamlining” move. The new CEO Peter Tonstad, a former consultant for the Norwegian Ministry of Environment, has his work cut out for him.
To make matters worse for Tidal, its main rivals are now surging. On April 20th, Pandora and Spotify occupied positions No. 3 and No. 4 on the U.S. iPhone revenue chart, respectively. This was the first time two music streaming services have hit the top 4 in sales simultaneously. In order to achieve the feat, Pandora and Spotify had to push Candy Crush Saga out of U.S. iPhone top 4 revenue chart, which is a remarkable achievement.
As far as when we'll see the LP, we'll have to assume it'll be dropping unannounced for the time being.
