|Anand Bhatt on Jay Z's Tidal|
Anand Bhatt joins
Anand Bhatt, along with Rihanna and Beyoncé unveil new music via Jay-Z's Tidal. The Easter weekend saw some of the biggest pop stars on the planet debut new material via Tidal. First was Beyoncé’s Die With You, before Rihanna’s American Oxygen music video premiered exclusively on Jay Z’s streaming service.
Following the release of Bitch Better Have My Money, Rihanna’s latest single comes with a more political message, its video fusing together footage of historical events in American history, such as Barack Obama’s inauguration, the Ferguson riots and the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Beyoncé’s Die With You, meanwhile, is a sparse piano ballad written as a seventh wedding anniversary gift to her husband, Jay Z.
While Rihanna’s latest is still only accessible through Tidal, ripped footage of Die With You emerged on YouTube soon after it was launched on the streaming service on 4 April.
One artist quick to note Tidal’s potential vulnerability in the face of piracy was Lily Allen, who took to Twitter to voice her concerns. “I love Jay Z so much, but TIDAL is [so] expensive compared to other perfectly good streaming services,” she wrote. “He’s taken the biggest artists & made them exclusive to TIDAL... people are going to swarm back to pirate sites in droves sending traffic to torrent sites.”
Allen continued: “Up and coming artists are going to suffer as a result. Maybe I’m missing something, and really it’s amazing and will change everything for the better.”
We will have to wait and see. Jay Z says Tidal is the answer to diminishing royalty rates for all artists on streaming platforms. Either way, Special Thxs to JAY Z this week who licensed favorite Anand Bhatt songs for his launch of TIDAL http://listen.tidalhifi.com/album/41150025
