Jay Z launches Tidal

Well, it's official!

Today, some of the biggest titans of the music industry have been gathered by Jay Z to celebrate the re-launch of Tidal — the streaming service that's supposed to change the way we listen to music!!

The 45-year-old rapper assembled quite the squad to commandeer the event: Beyoncé, Kanye West, Madonna, Rihanna, and Nicki Minaj were all present.

But it didn't stop there! Alicia Keys, Usher, J. Cole, Jack White, Arcade Fire, and Daft Punk were some of the other artists present for the launch to sign a declaration.

Tidal will offer CD-quality audio and video but uses no free ad-supported service. The streaming service will offer monthly subscriptions — $19.95 for high quality streaming and $9.95 for standard quality.

The service has deals with all of the major record labels. And Mr. Carter has already coaxed artists to sign over their songs, even the anti-Spotify Taylor Swift!

Here comes the next spring break party anthem!

Martin Garrix is electronic dance's fastest rising artist, and he joins forces with Usher for his brand new single Don't Look Down!

The video takes place at The LeGarritsen Country Club, where a pool boy pines over model Natalia Bonifacci. To win the beauty over, the pool boy ditches his uniform and performs some jazzy pool dancing — he even summons a giant seahorse!

But is that enough to win the model's affections?

Usher Wonders If It's Magic With Surprise Guest Stevie Wonder During His 2015 Grammys Performance! Watch HERE!

| Filed under: UsherGrammys

We're always happy to see Usher back up on stage.

And he certainly showed up for his 2015 Grammys performance of Stevie Wonder's hit If It's Magic!

It certainly wasn't the smooth dancing Usher we're used to, but it was definitely soulful…

…especially when Stevie showed up on stage!

Playing the harmonica, he was obviously the perfect addition.

Watch the performance (above)!
