After gathering J. Cole, Jay Z, Beyonce, Madonna, Rihanna, Daft Punk, Chris Martin, Kanye West, Calvin Harris and many more to sign the declaration of what they believe will be a new chapter of music, many of the fans who tuned in to watch the press conference still had questions about what TIDAL will actually do.
Though you can download the app for a free 30-day trial, the $20 price point has many wondering, other than great sound quality, why should the leave Spotify and Pandora.
After Ebro asked what his followers thought, here’s how they responded to the launch:
@oldmanebro Im all for more beneficial platform 4 artists…not sure if its the real thing bt will be watchin.

@oldmanebro twice the price of Spotify for what exactly? A few more kbps that most of the population won’t even notice? Miss me.

@oldmanebro I think it’s about artists taking control, being in charge rather than corporations using them and not caring about their input.

The press conference was not much of a conference, as the media invited was not allowed to ask any questions. Still, the concept was dope and who knows, they may take the music industry by storm as they planned.
