Fans of Hollywood badboy and owner of Yeezy Fashion Line,Kanye West has been called out by a fan of his that felt betrayed by the man’s inability to fufill his promises on his latest album release,TLOP.He pulled a fast one on his fans by backing out on a promise that Tidal would be the ONLY place to get his new album.
Kanye vowed “The Life of Pablo” would never be available on Apple or Spotify or any other streaming service besides Tidal … which of course is owned by his pal Jay-Z.
Justin Baker-Rhett says that was enough to get him to sign up for Tidal — and it worked on 2 million other Yeezus fans who also bought subscriptions. In his class action lawsuit, he says the bump saved the floundering service because the new users added $84 million to Tidal’s bottom line.As bad business would be described,’Pablo’ was up on Apple Music, Spotify and eventually Kanye’s own website too.
Baker-Rhett feels like he and other fans were tricked into “paying for Tidal’s rescue.” He clearly regrets dropping that $9.99 for the service. He’s suing Kanye and Tidal for damages.
The recent release of kanye‘s Latest Album,The Life Of Pablo,has had a tremendous effect on jay-z‘s business venture,Tidal.Tidal is a subscription-based music streaming service with over 2,500,000 paying subscriber with unlimited access to over 25million tracks and over 18 thousand high definition music videos.the recent boom in subscribers can be only traced to one source alone—kanye’s The Life Of Pablo.
Sources connected to Tidal revealed … “The Life of Pablo” and its debut at MSG has already been streamed millions of times in less than two weeks, which is a record for the service. Subscribers to the app have also been said to have doubled from around 1 million to 2.5 million.In fact,rumor has it that the album’s been so successful his team is discussing plans for another release, which may include a physical copy.
Tidal reps have been tight lipped about numbers, but they’ve gotta be happy with this: The new subscribers could eventually add up to at least $15 mil in additional revenue.
Not a bad feather in Yeezy’s cap
