I wasn't buying the argument that we should support Tidal, which is mostly owned by JP Morgan Chase, because it's the black-owned streaming service, and I was only strengthened in my resolve when I saw a picture of the people who actually work there.
Arguably, anyone dumb enough to partner with the streaming service deserves to have their royalties stolen and given to Beyoncé and Kanye West.
If you're just some poor bastard whose songs are on there, who's also being ripped off, you might consider removing them. Tidal supposedly pays a higher rate than some of the other streaming services, but what difference does it make, when hardly anyone uses it?
According to some newspaper in Europe, which got their hands on one of Tidal's hard drives, the streaming service overstated the numbers for Beyoncé's Lemonade and Kanye's the Life of Pablo, to the tune of hundreds of millions of plays, thus wildly overpaying them with money that rightfully belonged to other artists.
I know they promised Kanye (and maybe also Beyoncé) a huge bonus for making his album exclusive for like a week, and they probably didn't have the money to pay it, because very few people pay to use Tidal. Jay Z could have just given Kanye the money from his own pocket, but that's not how he got so rich.
Because Tidal is based in some country I probably couldn't pick out on a map, I'm not sure whose jurisdiction this is, but Jeff Sessions might want to have a look. I know he doesn't fuxwit black people anyway.
