Kanye West Has Officially Severs Ties With Tidal
Kanye West has ended his exclusivity agreement with Tidal, after news swirled that the rapper and the streaming service were reportedly squabbling over monetary issues.
Billboard reports that rights to the musician’s catalogue are no longer exclusive to the service.
“West claimed that Tidal owes him ‘more than $3 million’ after his album The Life of Pablo allegedly ‘resulted in 1.5 million new subscribers to Tidal, for which he was supposed to get a bonus but the company hasn’t paid.'”
