Jay Z Launches $20 A Month Streaming Service With Help from Pals Madonna, Kanye, Beyonce, Nikki Minaj
Remember: I told you that Jay Z had a summit meeting back on February 6th in Pasadena. Madonna, Kanye, Beyonce, Nikki Minaj, Coldplay, Rihanna, Jack White and others signed on to help him launch Tidal, Jay’s new streaming service.
Tidal debuts today with high def music– and the sound is very good. However, when I signed up for the one month free trial I immediately got my first bill for $20– giving me a one week free trial instead.
Hmmmmm…Will customers switch from Spotify, which is free or $9.99 a month? Or YouTube, which is free? Jay has to charge something. He paid $56 million to buy the service from Swedish investors.
Meantime, all those stars are using social media today to promote Tidal. All their Twitter feeds are sending fans to Tidal.
