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!

When Spotify lost Taylor Swift and her entire discography last year, they suffered a pretty big blow.

She called them an "experiment" and said she feels they don't "fairly compensate" music makers.

While many maaaaany other artists don't share her opinion, like Jay Z who is totally on Spotify, one artist — who also happens to be Jay Z — scooped up her discography for his own steaming service!

Jay Z did it! He got Taylor's albums on his recently purchased music stream provider TIDAL.

Why would ol' Swifty suddenly let Jay Z's stream(ing service) touch her albums?

JB has been a notoriously bad neighbor ever since he made his mark on the West Coast. Before moving into his pimped out Beverly Hills crib last month, he threw wild, loud parties at his previous BH condo.

And at his house in Calabasas, he not only egged the pad next to him, his team allegedly called the owner an anti-semitic slur!

Yikes!

Earlier this week, the Shameless actress was a guest on SiriusXM's Sway in the Morning where she revealed she has the unfortunate position of being the 21-year-old's new victim neighbor.

Being the lady that the 28-year-old is, she tried to greet her new pal… but was denied!

Residing in El Lay comes with a lot of perks, but there are also a few things celebs could live without.

The paparazzi, for one!

Beyoncé and Jay Z probably learned that the hard way, because InTouch magazine is reporting that the power duo made a huge hassle over Blue Ivy attending school in California — and even hired extra beefy security to stand watch.

According to an insider at Blue's preschool, she practically has the same protection as the president!

They said:

"A security motorcade drops her off and picks her up from school. There are two cars and three bodyguards!"
