A new streaming music service by the
name of Tidal has been re-launched in the
music industry by rapper and producer Jay Z who recently
bought the service for $56 million. Competing with Spotify, Google, and Apple, this service is
introduced as a high-fidelity audio service. Unlike many
competitors, Tidal provides songwriters songwriter credits
within track info and is also a subscription only service.
