Jay Z

In yet another desperate move to attract subscribers to his Tidal music streaming app, hip hop mogul Jay Z is pulling his albums from Spotify.

According to published reports, Jay Z and his silent partners are worried sick that his much-hyped, $54 million music service is skipping a beat after its launch last week.

Almost from the start the Tidal app has been maligned and ridiculed by Jay Z’s fans who balked at paying $20 a month for a service they can get for free or for $9.99 a month on Spotify.

So Jay Z made a desperate move by pulling his classic 1996 album Reasonable Doubt from Spotify.

As for now, the rest of Jay Z’s catalogue is still available on Spotify, but not for long.

Sources say he is working on pulling his entire catalogue from Spotify and other music services.

Jay Z’s bold name celebrity friends are also pitching in to help him save the service from certain failure.

In the past 48 hours, Jay Z’s wife Beyonce and his protege Rihanna have released new music on Tidal. And washed up singer Erykah Badu also released a video on the music app.

All exclusive music releases on Tidal can be found within minutes on YouTube or via a Google search. Savvy music consumers who are pinching their pennies in an uncertain economy see no reason to spend an extra $20 a month just to fatten Jay Z’s already swollen pockets.

      I wld guess this was his plan from the start but it’s still cheaper to just download the album for a one time fee and listen to it as much as you want.

      These artist better be careful because this can backfire in their face. If your music is being uploaded on a site that nobody cares for then your music will die out (Tree in Forrest). I mean fans don’t even buy your cd’s what makes them think they’ll get with this? did Nicki go Platinum yet?

      I get what Jay is trying to do and I do feel like artist should be paid for their craft. However, I think this alienates a lot of fans. I’m thinking that Ye and Rhianna’s new album is gonna drop exclusively on Tidal. Which isnt fair to the rest of us who doesnt want sign up to Tidal. We gonna have to wait for however long until their album drops on Itunes or whatever. Its like he wants us to be apart of this exclusive club, that most folks aint interested in joining.

      If Happy was streamed over a million times on Spotify and Pharell only got like $2700, they are not getting paid for their craft. Most artist get money through endorsement and touring.

      Jay doesn’t fully run this, he’s just the face, so I’m not sure if this is “black business” per se

      But, there’s still plenty of time to see how this will do. somebody made a good point stating that he should have came into the streaming game quietly as an even competitor and THEN started to release exclusive content, kind of like Netflix did. I don’t think people like feeling left out of something right off the bat…

      Spotify and Pandora and ’em did not want to let them in and it is their HARD WORK. If they wanted to share, Pandora could have been doing exclusive deals with artists and chi,t could have been dropping exclusively on Pandora or Spotify or any other format like that. These other streaming sites wanted your money and the ad money and said phuck the artist.
      Those big and not so big have followings so when Rhi drops her new song and video on Tidal, like she did over the weekend, the Navy is here for it. Pandora and ’em could have done the same and revolutionized it, now they run the risk of being shut down completely if more and more artist start pulling their work.

      Thanks guys I try to always be positive and not let stuff get to me. Surprised :blink: Never let them see you sweat. Be strong for my friends, family and kids. I am usually the listening ear. But today was tough. To keep smiling and be strong for everyone else when you are tired. But God I still thank you for it all! :pray: I am shaking it off. Gangstas don’t stay down long. Besides I am at work and I will not let them get to me :nono: Kid don’t need to see me down either.

      I don’t see this any different than Amazon freeing authors from the traditional publishers. Someone is going to get the money, why not the people actually creating?
      I will say that $20 a month is a bit steep to start out knowing that prices only go up.

      I guess people are missing the whole point of Tidal. For one the regular streaming service cost the same amount as Spotify. There is a Premium tier that cost 20 which provides a higher quality audio than the regular service. Thats one of the differences in Tiday and spotify other than it providing Videos. Also the average consumer doesnt understand royalty rates and such. Streaming services actually pay less than radio but is consumed at a higher rate which means the artist lose out in the end. You may look at it as the rich getting richer but as people buy less and less albums services like spotify and tidal become more important as the revenue stream. They become popular because most people spend more than 10 bucks a month on garbage but balk when it comes to spending it on music when we are driven by music more than any other art. and 10 bucks or even 20 is about what you would spend on one or two cds in a month but gives you access to hundreds of thousands of albums at any given time with out having to go through trying to upload them or even store them. you can just pretty much access them at anytime. I personally think its a great thing for all artist not just jay-z that they getting together to control how their art is distributed to the masses.

      Jay pulling his albums is not goin to work if u are a fan u already have these albums! These music services are jus a matter of convenience. The beyonces and rhiannas and other top artists fans already have all thier albums its jus convenient to have them all in one place but not convenient enough to pay 240

      dollars a year
