More bad news for Tidal!

Jay Z's music venture has been sinking since its conception, but the streaming service might be in real trouble — because they could lose one of their main attractions!!

And by main attraction, we mean Beyoncé!

It has been reported that in exchange for the rights to stream certain artists, Tidal has been asked for huge advances from record label titans Sony and Warner!

According to sources, the streaming service finalized an agreement with Warner, but have yet to strike a deal with Sony.

This means if the streaming service doesn't pay up, they could lose cornerstone artist Queen Bey — who's Tidal-exclusive content has been a huge selling point for the service, not to mention she's Jay's wife!

Tidal claims they are financially sound, so coming to an agreement with Sony shouldn't be a problem.

However, if Blue Ivy's momma abandons ship for any reason, we think it'll be safe to say Tidal won't stay afloat.

Beyoncé, Jay Z, and Blue Ivy's trip to Italy for a mini getaway recently is everything we could have dreamed!

The power family visited the countryside to catch some of the sights like Florence's Ponte Vecchio. But um, how could they not stop for a carousel ride, authentic pizza, or gelato??

Their 22-day vegan diet can wait! Sigh. We're so jealous!

Jay Z's newest tactic for trying to get you to join Tidal is… FOMO!

This weekend, the music mogul staged an exclusive "B-sides" concert for subscribers of his streaming service. Then, Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj dropped a surprise music video for Feeling Myself for — you guessed it — Tidal users only!

But it doesn't stop there! On Tuesday, the struggling music venture sent out an email to their users explaining that the first 500 subscribers would be offered a pair of free tickets to the Budweiser Made in America festival!

Jay Z was lauded by many for his performance art piece Picasso Baby.

But performance and conceptual artist Marina Abramović, who collaborated with Jay on that project, is NOT one of them.

He's not giving up, we'll give him that much!

Jay Z has had a bit of a bumpy road the last month or so with the disappointing launch of his new streaming service, Tidal. But that's not going to stop him from speaking his mind and throwing shade at all his haters!

Last night at Terminal 5 in New York, Young Hov gave an exclusive performance to Tidal subscribers and he didn't disappoint, especially when it came to smack talk. He took some time out during his set to freestyle his thoughts on how his streaming service is all about the music while showing hints of anger and frustration. One of Jay's lines he dropped was:

Did Jay Z Buy Beyoncé The Mother Of All GoT-Inspired Gifts!? Emilia Clarke Says The Pair Are Proud Owners Of Dragon Eggs!

| Filed under: TV NewsMusic MinuteLove LineBeyonceJay ZHarper's BazaarGame Of ThronesEmilia Clarke

Jay Z buy Beyonce a dragon egg from GOT

What kind of gift is fit for a queen?

Oh you know, just a super rare, super cool dragon egg from Game Of Thrones!

That MUST have been what ran through Jay Z's mind when he asked himself that very question, since we have it on pretty good authority that he bought one for Beyoncé!

Like an actual one! We're talking eggsactly-as-seen-on-TV level!

At least that's what Emilia Clarke said. And she should know. She does play Daenerys Targaryen on the HBO hit! She told Harper's Bazaar:

"Apparently Jay Z bought one for Beyoncé, or something. I don't know."

Okay, so maybe she doesn't know. But if Jay DID grab this eggsellent gift for the mother of dragons Blue Ivy, then there's a possibility it broke the bank. Or his back. Or both:

"They are really, really, really expensive. And they are really f–king heavy and serious works of art."

If he went through with it, this marks just another of the rapper's pricey purchases in the name of love.

If he didn't, well, it wouldn't be the first time rumors started flying about Jay's elaborate expenses.

And we'd be pretty bummed, too.
