Chrissy Teigen Just Poked Fun at the '4:44' Tidal Streaming Kerfuffle

Tidal claims to pay more royalties and was set up as a co-ownership with Jay-Z's artist friends like Madonna and Coldplay's Chris Martin.

The Life of Pablo, released in February 2016, was streamed exclusively on Tidal for a month and a half, and Kanye West got furious over the platform not blocking its competitors from streaming his music for such a long time. "But you know what, I don't got Tidal, so a n-- had to bootleg it to me".

His leaving the company also supposedly pre-dates JAY-Z's new album 4:44, which features a Kanye diss on the track "Kill JAY-Z", in which JAY raps "you lost your principles".

TMZ's sources say that Tidal has sent a letter to West, reminding him that he is under an exclusive contract with Tidal, and that the music streamer will take him to court if he signs with another music streaming company.

We're told Kanye had no idea Jay would go after him on 4:44 and when he heard it he was "shocked".

West said that his album Life of Pablo resulted in Tidal earning 1.5 million new subscribers, and West said he was supposed to have received a bonus for this.

Music mogul JAY-Z's issues with Kanye West are deeper than a TIDAL dispute.

Sources claim that West's lawyers have sent a letter to Tidal over a month ago, saying their contract was breached and that it has been terminated. Both parties are threatening to file suit against each other.

"Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star #Kim Kardashian is reportedly anxious about her husband #Kanye West's emotional and #mental health over his feud with Jay Z.

The rift between the pair reportedly started a year ago when Jay-Z failed to contact West following his wife Kim Kardashian's robbery at gunpoint in Paris.

Neither Tidal nor West has spoken publicly about the contract termination. West also claims Tidal has not paid him for music video sales.
