It hasn’t been the greatest of starts for Jay-Z’s streaming platform, Tidal, and it could be about to get a lot worse for him.
Mainly because all of his wife’s music could soon be stripped from it following some serious issues with Sony – who are demanding a significant amount of money in order to feature their music.
Beyonce is the co-owner of Tidal and one of the major artists on the platform, to boot. This will be a massive blow for the company if negotiations don’t go to plan.
As a label, Sony controls Columbia Music, RCA and Epic Records to name a few, so the pressure is on for Jay and Bey. Losing them could be the straw that broke the camels back.
