Clouds pile up on the paid streaming service. As reported by the economic newspaper Dagens Naeringsliv, the Norwegian authorities opened on Monday, January 14, 2019, a survey to find out whether or not Tidal deceived their data. Crispy, JayZ's platform would have increased the cost of his wife's albums, Beyonc, and his friend, Kanye West.
We communicate regularly with the authorities. We are aware that at least one person was heard as part of this investigation, a Tidal spokesman confirmed. If Okokrim, the Norwegian cell of crime against the economy, was given the case, it was because an association of local artists claimed that streaming revenue had fallen because of the cost invasion. In addition, the media updated (including a Dagens Naeringsliv survey of May 2018) the possible manipulation of the number of readings, said Okokrim's promoter, Elisabeth Harbo-Lervik. At this stage, no one is suspected or accused, however, made clear the Norwegian lawyer Tidal.
Jay Z bought the platform of Norwegian origin in 2014 for 56 million francs. She never really dcoll. It alleges today three million subscribers against 75 million for Spotify.
