At 5p.m. EST, Jay Z is expected to announce the relaunch of music streaming app, “Tidal”. Jay Z bought the company for $54 million. Jay Z is expected to reinvent the app to compete with other popular music streaming apps like Spotify. Services on the app can be bought for $9.99 for standard definition and $19.99 for high definition. Time will tell if this will be a relevant, profitable step towards what some artists call not enough financial profits from streaming music platforms.

He’s done it! Drake has pulled a Beyonce! I hope this trend continues in music. I’m curious to see how much it sells and if he can match or beat Beyonce’s numbers. Listen to the iTunes preview here.
Backstage, after almost repeating the stunt he pulled on Taylor Swift on rocker Beck, Kanye West called the Grammy voting system “flawed”. Basically, Grammys are awarded based on who the academy votes for from the vast list of nominations. Nominations that most of the general public haven’t even heard of. Although I do not claim to be an expert on how Grammys are handed out, there is some truth to this. Such a small group of people, who have been a part of the academy for a long time, should not have a monopoly on how the vast number of awards are decided. Perhaps the voting should be handed to the people like the People’s Choice Awards? Who knows if there will ever be a change?
