Wondering why some of your favorite artists, producers and musicians are changing their profile pictures to cyan blue avatars?
We mentioned Tidal earlier in 2014 in our Spotify vs Tidal, A Higher Quality Streaming Music Platform, But now The Swedish high-quality audio/music streaming service is back to open with rapper Jay Z who recently purchased the company and is coming very soon. In fact in the next 2 hours there will be an announcement. The new Tidal site is counting down towards 5 p.m., when Jay Z will conduct a “special announcement” in New York.
Beyoncé, Kanye West, Rihanna, Jason Aldean, Madonna, Calvin Harris, Arcade Fire, Coldplay, Daft Punk, and Nicki Minaj are among those who have aligned with Tidal, changing their Twitter and Facebook profile photos to cyan blue in support of Jay Z’s fledgling service.
Oh, Even Deadmau5 is on board too:
There is also en exciting trailer featuring all the icons, Promoting the new music platform streaming service in a way that will definitely grab peoples attention.
Tidal offers two price tiers: For $9.99 a month, Tidal Premium boasts standard quality sound along with high definition music videos. Tidal HiFi will cost $19.99 a month and features the Lossless High Fidelity sound quality that its competitors can’t offer, as well as the HD music videos and curated editorial. New users can sign up for a free 30-day trial to test out the service.
But the real question is, Is $19.99 too much for music streaming services in 2015?
