So, Beyonce and Sony weren’t so stupid after all.
The exclusivity to Tidal for streaming “Lemonade” ends tonight at midnight. The New York Times reports that iTunes will get the CD for downloading then. Beyonce won’t have to smash any car windows.
Presumably, Spotify and Amazon will follow. Beyonce didn’t make that album for a small audience. On Friday she wants to be number 1. There’s only oen way to get there: be available on all platforms.
Kanye West and Rihanna regret no doubt their Tidal exclusive.
Maybe Sony will even issue a proper physical disc. Stay tuned…
