Watch Jay Z Meet With Kanye, Madonna, Daft Punk, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj & More For TIDAL Launch

Jay Z’s rumored Illuminati meeting of the music heavyweight minds was real after all. Jay Z released the above teaser showing the industry’s top artists all descend on a mutual meeting spot to join forces with Jay to take control of digital music. AS Jay told Billboard:

“People are not respecting the music, and devaluing what it really means,” Jay Z told Billboard. “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 okay paying for it. It’s just the mindset right now.”

Jay wants people to get back into the groove of paying for music, thus raising the quality of the product and making sure everyone at each level of the process is paid properly:

“I talked to everyone one on one about music and about what they would like to see in a service. I wanted to know if they were willing to take a chance, since everyone’s names are attached and their reputations, too.

I can go on tour. But what about the people working on the record, the content creators and not just the artists? If they’re not being compensated properly, then I think we’ll lose some writers and producers and people like that who depend on fair trade. Some would probably have to take another job, and I think we’ll lose some great writers in the process. Is it fair? No.”

Hit the flip for more…


Before releasing the full teaser for his new venture, Jay released the below clip on Instagram to build anticipation…

This could really change the music game for good. Will you be using TIDAL?
