JAY Z LAUNCHED HIS OWN MUSIC-STREAMING SERVICE CALLED TIDAL


Rap superstar Jay Z launched his own subscription-based music-streaming service called Tidal on Monday, with the support of other titans of the music industry including his wife Beyoncé, Alicia Keys, Chris Martin of Coldplay, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, Kanye West and Deadmau5.

The ad-free service will feature music and video and will be priced at $9.99 per month for the basic version, Variety reports. A high-definition version called Tidal HiFi will cost $19.99 per month. Users will reportedly have access to about 25 million tracks and 75,000 music videos.


Jay Z, whose real name is Shawn Carter, bought Sweden-based Aspiro — the company that created Tidal — in January. The rap mogul plans to compete with existing streaming services like Spotify, Pandora and the streaming service widely expected from Apple following the tech giant’s acquisition of Beats Music.

Other artists involved in Tidal include Usher, Madonna, Arcade Fire, Daft Punk, Calvin Harris and former White Stripes front man Jack White.
