Jay-Z, Beyoncé and Kanye unite music’s biggest stars to launch new Tidal streaming service

You know when really influential music people get together to make a difference to the world but instead find a way of exploiting the young people that want change? Yeah, that.

In case, you haven’t browsed Twitter this morning, the likes of Jay- Z, Beyoncé, Kanye West, Rihanna, Madonna and others came out to show solidarity with Tidal, a new (and very reasonably priced music streaming service for a mere $20-a-month) which boldly promised to ‘revolutionize’ the music industry.

That’s if revolutionize means making the rich, richer and the poor, poorer.

And what’s this? Oh yes, another genius quote from none other than Kanye West. He tweeted saying, “Together, we can turn the tide and make music history. Start by turning your profile picture blue. #TIDALforALL” Sorry, what?

To clarify, if you turn your Twitter profile picture blue then you’re part of the lucky ‘movement’ paying $20 a month championing already established artists.

So here’s the Band-Aid style video of the music greats coming together at last to use their influence to address social injustice…

To conclude: The only people benefiting from this service are the already insanely rich celebs while the struggle in our pockets is so real right now, we’re reduced to going on Tinder dates with guys we hardly like, just to get a free meal.
