Taylor Swift further snubs Spotify, joins Jay-Z’s streaming service
Taylor Swift has signed on to Jay-Z’s newly acquired streaming service, Tidal, after very publically pulling her music from popular music service, Spotify, late last year.
Jay-Z acquired Tidal after paying $56m for its Scandinavian parent company Aspiro, and likely offered Swift a higher royalty payout than Spotify did.
However, the site will not feature Twift’s most recent album ‘1989.’
Unlike streaming services that get most of their revenue from advertising, Tidal charges users $25 monthly.
The site will be relaunched as Tidal HiFi at an unknown later date.
