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?
Because TIDAL is a “high fidelity music streaming” service that charges users $19.99 a month. We bet the artists receive higher and more frequent payouts.
With Spotify still having a free option, we hope Taylor’s music is enough to draw people to Jay’s TIDAL.
Mainly because he paid $56 million for the service earlier this month!
Good luck, Jay! If anyone could draw a crowd, it’d be Taylor Swift!!
