Jay Z Launches Streaming Service With Beyonce, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj And Others

Jay Z

The 'Holy Grail' hitmaker acquired Tidal earlier this month and confirmed at yesterday's launch party that it will stream music of at least 16 top artists.

Jay Z has launched his own music streaming service with huge support from stars like Rihanna and Nicki Minaj.

The 'Holy Grail' hitmaker acquired Tidal earlier this month and confirmed at yesterday's launch party that it will be the home to streamed music from no less than 16 top artists, who will also partly-own the service, including Beyonce, Kanye West, Coldplay and Madonna.

Speaking to Billboard magazine at the event, he said: 'People are not respecting the music, and devaluing what it really means.'

'People really feel like music is free, but will pay $6 for water. You can drink water free out of the tap and it's good water. But they're OK paying for it. It's just the mindset right now.'

Like its main rival Spotify, the service will be subscription-based.
