Jay Z-Kanye West: Tidal Wave Goodbye Follows Money Feud

The first problem with Tidal is the release of Saint Pablo, which resulted in 1.5 million new subscribers to Tidal, for which Kanye West is reportedly supposed to get a bonus but, the company has not paid.

It has since emerged that Kanye had demanded upwards of $3million from TIDAL in compensation for new subscribers that he brought to the service through the release of The Life of Pablo and music videos for singles from that album.

It gets complicated though, because Tidal say that Kanye "didn't deliver the videos required by contract", and furthermore, are threatening to counter sue him if he uses another streaming service, since they have an "exclusive contract".

TMZ later said, citing anonymous sources "with knowledge of the conflict between Kanye and Tidal", that West is no longer interested in being exclusive to any one streaming service.

In 2015, Kanye West joined Jay-Z and several prominent artists such as Prince, Madonna, and Nicki Minaj to announce the relaunch Tidal. Music Video sales for West's songs were also left unpaid by the company. The issue was not resolved amicably, apparently, and Tidal has now threatened to sue him for breach of contract.

Yeezy is also reportedly waiting for a bonus check from Tidal following the one-and-a-half million new subscribers he secured for the company thanks to his Life of Pablo album release a year ago, along with music video reimbursements.

Jay-Z's "4:44" album predates the feud, in which the rapper also disses West.

Now, adding fuel to the fire, TMZ reports that West is leaving Tidal over a $3 million dispute. However, Kanye West started the money dispute against Tidal before 4:44 even saw the light of day.

He rapped: "You dropped outta school, you lost your principles/ I know people backstab you, I feel bad too/ But this fuck everybody attitude ain't natural".
