jay z tidal streaming service

Already dropping exclusive music and videos via Tidal, Jay Z is taking another step towards making the streaming service a success by personally calling users to say thank you for signing up. According to a report from Business Insider, musicians (stakeholders) involved in Tidal are given accounts on the site to check who is listening to their music and can keep tabs on how their albums are performing numbers wise. Tidal executive Vania Schlogel says that musicians who have these accounts can access users' contact information and get in touch with them directly. "[Jay Z] called some of his fans and one of them made the funniest comment," said Schlogel. "He said, 'This is the best customer service I've ever received!'"

Tidal claims to have over 500,000 subscribers across 35 different countries, which means Jay Z could be racking up a huge phone bill. To compete with other entities like Spotify and Beats, these are the steps Tidal will have to take. While some may view the tactic as desperate, you can't deny that receiving a phone call from Jay Z would be pretty damn cool.

Tidal is currently offering other exclusive giveaways to users. The five top NYC Tidal users who stream the most J. cole music between April 11-April 20 will be selected to attend a private J. Cole show. A win-win for everyone involved. J. Cole gets paid and listeners get a rare chance to see one of their favorite artists up close.
