As Artists Pull Their Music, TIDAL Faces Millions In Damages Over Fake Streams

Norwegian songwriters, composers, and music publishers have filed a complaint against Jay-Z’s streaming music service, TIDAL. The move comes after Norwegian newspaper Dagens Næringsliv (DN) published a damning report about the service — with the industry taking very serious note.

Dagens launched a massive, two-year investigation in conjunction with the Norwegian University of Science and Technology’s Center for Cyber and Information Security (CCIS). In the end, the publication found that TIDAL had massively inflated Beyoncé and Kanye West’s numbers, leading to massive payouts for both artists.

This, of course, at the expense of real, hard-working artists on the platform.
