Beyonce

In a desperate bid to save husband Jay Z's struggling TIDAL music streaming app, Beyonce released a new track, "Die With You," exclusively on TIDAL.

The track with its tempting lyrics sang over lifeless piano chords was released on Saturday to coincide with Beyonce and Jay Z's seventh wedding anniversary.

"I wake up just to sleep with you / I open my eyes so I can see it's you / And I love so I can die with you," she sings.

"Die With You" caused a frenzy on social media on Saturday. But it didn't result in a tidal wave of new subscribers for the $20/month app that Jay Z and Beyonce had hoped for.

Jay Z desperately needs millions of signups to compensate his silent partners for their $54 million investment in TIDAL.

Not everyone was impressed with Beyonce's new song.

The NY Daily News music critic writes:

As a song, 'Die" feels like a throwaway — more gesture than anthem. As a piece of advertising, however, it effectively underscores Tidal's mission to make its subscribers feel like they have a closer connection to its artists.

Like some audio answer to an Instagram shot, "Die" got our attention, but, in doing so, it just makes us hungry for something more substantial.

Jay Z teamed up with numerous big name stars to relaunch the TIDAL app last week. But one celebrity who wasn't invited to participate was singer Jennifer Lopez. She had nothing nice to say about TIDAL -- mainly because she's never heard of TIDAL.

When the dust clears, TIDAL will be a huge failure and Jay Z will have only his over-inflated ego to blame.

      I thought that song was just her gift to him. I didnt think it was a commercial for Tidal. Look at her outfit vs what she wore to the meeting. They prolly just had anniversary :hunching: she still afterglowing. Hair aint even did :lolsign:

      Beyonce looks cute in the video. I can't hear it at work and couldn't muster up the give a damn to check it out over the weekend. Never have been a big fan of her music. Not down with music streaming either. I still buy music to old fashioned what for the most part. I like to be able to touch my music collection. But good luck to them.

      @user
      I saw your response about Success Academy. there's a long ass article in the NY Post - pros and cons - and I was curious about your opinion since you're in NY and have school-age children. Saturday anything gets a big NO from me. if it ain't an extracurricular activity like sports or some school club, ain't no way in hell I'm getting up early for "fun day". not happenin. and yes. the former teachers that commented all had issues with the number of parent meetings and harsh teaching/disciplinary tactics.

      It is $10 for basic and $20 for HiFi with exclusive content like this video and Rhianna new song.
      People are "mad" cause it isn't free. It has been explained how the apps that offer free and paid content (like Pandora if you don't want ads) pay the artist very little for their music. No one cares cause it isn't free and why should you have to pay for someones music when Pandora and em are giving it away for free

      Really? Why? :popcorn: what kinda looks did she exclude?

      I think its a good school for kids who are easily tamed (for lack of a better term) and if they start from kindergarten. I think starting in 2nd grade was a bad idea plus we (my kids & I) are too free spirited (or something?) for all of their nitpicking.
