Parents will do anything to protect their baby.

In February, we reported that Jay Z and Beyoncé might be recording an album together — a rumor that seemed way too good to be true.

This week, it's been reported the power couple's album is still underway. And it will be exclusively available on — you guessed it — Tidal!

Fuse host DJ Skee reported on Wednesday that Jay and Bey's record is nearly done and will "be released exclusively" on Jay's streaming service, which promises to be a better royalty deal for artists.

This highly anticipated album might just be what Tidal needs to give it an extra wind, as the company has sunk down out of the US iPhone top 700 download chart since its debut in March!

This joint project with his wife will mark Jay's fifth collaboration album, the most recent being 2011's Watch The Throne with bestie Kanye West — who, by the way, has recently deleted all of his social media support of Tidal. Inneresting…

No official announcement has been made yet from Blue Ivy's parents on the collaboration album, but if Tidal is at stake, they'll do anything they can to save their baby business!

Jay Z made big waves announcing the launch of his streaming service Tidal, which aimed to make streaming music a better deal for artists and a pricier deal for consumers.

Tidal's social media push included a star studded spokes-panel of Mr. Carter's friends. Beyoncé, Kanye West, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj and more of the industry's wealthiest artists urged users to switch to Tidal because of it's "high fidelity" sound.

But the public didn't seem to buy into the spectacle. After a couple of weeks into its release, the streaming service made less of a splash and more of a doggy paddle, barely competing with their streaming nemeses Spotify and Pandora.

Tidal cracked the US iPhone top 20 download chart for two weeks before it sunk all the way down out of the top 700! And they've only made their enemies stronger — Pandora and Spotify took the No. 3 and No. 4 positions of the US iPhone revenue chart!

It looks like the company's anti-Spotify movement only increased the public awareness of the streaming service!

Tidal is now scrambling to recover. They replaced their CEO in a "streamlining" move, but we're thinking it might be too late for Jay's baby business to stay afloat.

Do U think it's too late for Tidal?

Tidal released a statement on the big change, saying:
