Tidal came to the market to try to become a reference in the streaming music sector offering the same quality offered by other streaming music services at the same price, but also gave the possibility of paying double the quota, 19,99 dollars, to be able enjoy music in Hi-Fi. Currently it is still the only streaming music service that offers it, although a few months ago we informed you of the rumor that was circulating about the possibility that Spotify offered the same service.
In early July, Jay-Z, one of the owners of Tidal released his new album 4:44 exclusively, an exclusive that has already ended so if we are regulars of Apple Music or Spotify and we like this rapper, we do not need to open an account in Tidal
Tidal wanted to follow the same strategy that Apple uses in this sector, but as expected, having the number of subscribers that this music service currently has, Jay-Z has not wanted to extend this exclusivity much to be able to make profitable his new album with the great ones of streaming today: Apple Music and Spotify, which together have a total of approximately 80 million subscribers.
Since Tidal was bought by a select group of artists in 2015, 3 people have already passed through the company to perform the position of maximum manager, but it seems that the owners are not very clear about what to offer or what to stop doing, and they do not give freedom to the person they hire to be in charge of managing the company. At the beginning of the year, the operator Sprint acquired 33% of this service for $ 200 million, and what at first could be seen as a movement to save the company from ostracism, six months later we see how the operation of Tidal remains the same, a disaster.
