Just about three weeks after Jay-Z’s Tidal press conference, corporate leaders, fans, and business professionals have been shaming and taunting the hip-hop mogul for the horrible numbers Tidal has been doing. The streaming app was significantly beat out by Tyler, the Creator’s app, Golf Media, and even fell out of the iPhone top 700. So, what do you do when your latest gig is flopping? You announce that you’ll be dropping a joint album with your superstar wife exclusively on Tidal. Rumors have been swirling about a joint album since the dynamic duo went on tour together last year, but Dj Skeepossibly confirmed the album on Skee TV during the “Red Pill” segment. Now, what this means is that Tidal subscribers who opted to do a free one month trial on the day the app became available will most likely have to subscribe to the $9.99 or the $19.99 monthly fee once the album releases. Of course, those who have yet to even download the app will be able to begin their free trial period once the album releases. This is a very smart move on Jay’s part, and it will most likely bring in quite a few thousand new subscribers, but it’s possible that those subscribers may not be long term. It’s never enjoyable to see hip-hop artists try to venture out into other fields and flop, so good luck to Jay-Z and the other sixteen artists involved.
