Jay-Z's TIDAL Accused Of Inflating Beyoncé And Yeezy Streaming Numbers
Jay-Z’s music streaming company TIDAL has been accused of fabricating Beyonce and Kanye West album where the pair album having a high suspicious rate when it comes to stream.Many people are wondering how the album should be streamed beyond limit although there shouldn't be a limit but the company showing more than what is expect can be prove about the 250 million for The Life of Pablo in 10 days, and 306 million for Lemonade in 15 days – considering TIDAL’s claimed subscriber-base is only 3 million users.



The Center for Cyber and Information Security (CCIS) has made it research after they found out what was going and has allegedly validated the suspicions of inflated numbers.While the DN, Midia and CCIS obtained and analyzed streaming data for numerous subscribers, who appeared to have artificially high listening rates for the two albums on the platform,subscribers has been interviewed about the leaked secrete where many of them don't believe that the Kanye West and Beyonce album was fake and that's not possible.

In a series of interviews with some of those subscribers, DN reveals disbelief at the data, with listeners claiming they could have not possibly generated such statistics (like listening to Lemonade 180 times in 24 hours.) CCIS’ analysis shows that numerous methods were allegedly used to enhance play counts at specific times for those two specific albums. For The Life of Pablo, TIDAL is accused of duplicating plays for over 1 million subscribers at the same two time points. For Lemonade, the pattern is more complicated, but still consistent with automated behavior.

If the accusations find enough grounding, it is possible that TIDAL executives could be sued for causes of action such as collusion and/or fraud. Illegal cooperation between parties, internal or external, to inflate streaming numbers and thus increase royalty payments for certain artists is clearly illegal and fraudulent. Although there is no precedent, if TIDAL is found to have manipulated numbers, then Sony and Universal would probably be required to pay back some funds plus a possible penalty, similar to a clawback.What do you think.
