TIDAL may not have taken the streaming world by storm, but the Jay Z backed platform is pressing on.

Today it has been announced that the service will broadcast a live charity concert featuring Jay, Beyonce, Usher, Nicki Minaj, and more on October 20th.

Details below…

Christened TIDAL x 1020, the event boasts an all-star lineup of more than 20 artists including (in addition to those mentioned above) Prince, Lil Wayne, T.I., Damien Marley, Thomas Rhett. The Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn, New York will house the extravaganza.

Tickets will on sale for TIDAL members first today (September 30th) at 12 pm. ET, and for the general public on Friday (October 2nd) at 12 pm ET. Fans are encouraged to donate above each ticket’s face value, as all funds collected from ticket sales will be administered by New World Foundation on behalf of Tidal.

Stressing the inaugural event’s philanthropic focus, a press statement adds that all proceeds will benefit nonprofit organizations dedicated to advancing positive community relations and effecting systemic change for the development and sustainability of such societies. {Source}

Smart.

Though clearly out of their depth on the song streaming side of the tracks, it’s cool to see TIDAL diversifying into lanes that their competition aren’t pursuing as aggressively.

Could a turn-around be near?

The new single is penned by Ester Dean and is said by insiders to be the hit that will bring her career to higher levels than before. Are you ready?!

    • Faf September 30, 2015

  6. TURN IT UP September 30, 2015

      • Faf September 30, 2015

        But Taylor be in relationships tho
        S** comes with commitment

    • HailBeysus September 30, 2015

      @Faf Oh please! Taylor hasn’t held a relationship for more than a year it seems. If Kim K is a h** for having boyfriends for years at a time, then idk what the hell Taylor is. Shall we go through the list of boyfriends Taylor has had? Taylor knows no commitment! She’s just as slutty as Rihanna. At least Rihanna owns it and doesn’t try an play as a fake a** sweetheart.

  7. Taylor’s PA September 30, 2015

    AND ALL OF THOSE SERVICES ARE CHEAP SOME FREE
    .
    WHICH IS WHY MOST OF THEM RIHANNA IS THE MOST STREAMED….
    .
    TAYLOR SELLS ALBUMS LIKE NO OTHER AND TIDAL IS EXPENSIVE AND SWIFTIES BUY ALBUMS AND SINGLES SO……

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) September 30, 2015

    • TURN IT UP September 30, 2015

      Stfu you not even a real swiftie. You just another random troll looking for recognition and notoriety on a goddam blog smh. You hide behind Taylor just because she has receipts to prevent you from getting your basic ass dragged.

      • Taylor’s PA September 30, 2015

        TBH I’M SO SICK OF YOU ACTING LIKE YOU KNOW ME… HOW THE HELL WOULD YOU KNOW WHO I STAN FOR???? AND WHY ARE YOU ALWAYS ON MY REPLY SECTION?…… F** BYE

      • BAD GIRL GONE GOOD September 30, 2015

        @TURNITUP THIS IS THE FIRST TIME I MENTION SALES SO………

    • HailBeysus September 30, 2015

      Taylor’s not as big as you make her out to be 40 million albums sold and about 27 million of those are sold right here in the US LAWLZ!!! Only 13 million worldwide hahaha I’ll wait for that reply… Stop trying to push that 12 keys in a sentences holding thing on the world. Because they see through the lies!! Pure and utter TALENTLESS garbage.

      • TURN IT UP September 30, 2015

        Kii nobody even mentioned sales yet it started mentioning platinum certifications and sales see why I said it’s nothing but a fake Taylor Stan probably a navy in hiding or just a random sad kùnt

      • BAD GIRL GONE GOOD September 30, 2015

        HEY SIS I’VE CHANGED I KISS ASSs NOW….. NO NEED FOR YOU TO TRY DRAG QUEEN T
        IF THAT’S TRYING

      • Lotus September 30, 2015

        Which really sucks for Taylor. Everyone knows you’re not truly a star until you make waves globally. Tay is doing her thing in the U.S. but she couldn’t hold a stick to Bey, Rih, Katy, Gaga, etc outside of these United States.

        FYI: I don’t like the b—– her success mimicks Lean Rhimes. The fact that she bought friends make her look like a pathetic, spineless b****. What is she going to do when her sales drop? I just wish her hype would die because she’s lowered than mediocre.

  8. #justsayn September 30, 2015

    I see they pushin this tidal service thingy… Many ppl still aint buying it tho.

    Tidal can’t be saved …the chimp pig and the plastic mannequin should just hang it up.

    • BAD GIRL GONE GOOD September 30, 2015

      WHY ARE YOU MEAN?????

  16. RihYonce September 30, 2015

    Omg I can’t breathe lol I can’t wait to see Usher, Nicki & Wayne ! I hope the Queen releases new music before then because I would hate to see the same show for the 3rd time but a “feeling myself”, “love n this club (remix) performance would be great too ! I just really have a feeling Bey will release music in October but *fingers crossed*

  17. RihYonce September 30, 2015

    This just might be the Concert of the year !!

  18. Ju don’t even know September 30, 2015

    Lmaoo tidals A FLOPPPP loool

    • BEY>RIH September 30, 2015

      Your fave is a flop b**** lol.

  19. Ju don’t even know September 30, 2015

    No amount of grimy slutty ass gimmick filled Mc’s or 50 year old thieving transgender hookers can save tidaltanic..Its dried, washed up like beys career 🙁

    • HailBeysus September 30, 2015

      Lmao but Beyonce’s career isn’t dried up. She’s still selling albums by the millions. Her last big hit was number 2 on Billboard. Her last world tour revenues was over $200 million, which is her highest grossing tour so far. Not to mention the press is all over her and her family! Without any given face to face interviews with anyone in like over a year. She also manages to grace the cover of magazines without even speaking to the editor of the magazine lol! When will your fav have such a high demand.

  20. #JACKIE September 30, 2015

    People have Tidal? Like is it actually a thing? *opens Spotify app*

  21. Coolness September 30, 2015

    I’m not a TIDAL subscriber but I will be checking this out. Bey and Usher better grace the stage together! Their performance of his track, ‘Bad Girl’ in 2005 was lowkey iconic and s*xy as hell. However, seeing that they’re both older, married and more mature, I’d like to see them do something more focused on their vocal talents. Kinda like what Bey did with Ed Sheeran this past weekend at the Global Citizen Festival.

  22. MISHKA September 30, 2015

    The only thing that ruined TIDAL from the beginning was that ridiculous pompous announcement they made.

    However, there’s still room for improvement so hopefully Jay won’t throw the towel too soon.

  23. fatusankoh September 30, 2015

    You go bey and Jay I am a member good luck and more success in all you do

  24. King Mark111 /.\ September 30, 2015

    The marketing for Flopal. Co-owners changed their twitter profile pic blue, they formed the Justice League on stage, each released one music video to under performing singles, Jay Z did a flop side of a tape concert, Beyonce played chop sticks on a piano and now this. And they wonder why they only have 1 Million subscribers.
    .
    And I don’t want to hear no “White men this and Apple and others teamed up”, but they’re supposed to, it’s their competition. This isn’t the BET awards or Grammys, nothing will be just handed to Jay & Co just because they think they’re entitled.

  25. King Mark111 /.\ September 30, 2015

    And Beyonce is clinging to tours. People will get tired real quick, MARK my words. She don’t have the creativity like Madonna or Janet to keep fans coming back. (Nor the hits)

    • RihYonce September 30, 2015

      She’s preparing to drop new music , idiot she’s just building a buzz, everyone knows it’s coming soon so what are you talking about ?

  26. Alex September 30, 2015

    For Tidal to be a fairly new streaming service, having 1 million PAID subscribers is a HUGE accomplishment. Haters will always have something to say but it’s doing better than APPLE MUSIC. That’s the REAL FLOP. And it’s cheapest package is $13 a month?? Talking about power!! #Bowdown

  27. @JanetCIARA_ September 30, 2015

    I wonder if Blue Ivy will be performing.
