Jay-Z’s coveted TIDAL streaming service is in a bit of a mix up, but no worries. We have the answers!
Allegedly, TIDAL is responsible for faking streams of Beyonce‘s Lemonade and Kanye West‘s The Life of Pablo. But According to sources, it is not TIDAL under investigation. And the newspaper in question is false.
It seems as though, we are living in an interesting social climate where fake news reigns supreme. But distinguishing what’s real versus falsified information can be tricky. Dagens Naeringsliv, a Norwegian newspaper allegedly contained a hard drive that contained tampered data. But, thanks to a credible source, we can kill that noise!
“Tidal is not a suspect in the investigation. We are communicating with Økokrim. From the very beginning, DN has quoted documents that they have not shared with us in spite of repeated requests. DN has repeatedly made claims based on information we believe may be falsified. We are aware that at least one person we suspected of theft has been questioned. We cannot comment further at this time and refer to our previous statement, which still stands.”
TIDAL CEO, Richard Sanders also released a statement in May of 2018:
“We reject and deny the claims that have been made by Dagens Næringsliv. Although we do not typically comment on stories we believe to be false, we feel it is important to make sure that our artists, employees, and subscribers know that we are not taking the security and integrity of our data lightly, and we will not back down from our commitment to them.
When we learned of a potential data breach we immediately, and aggressively, began pursuing multiple avenues available to uncover what occurred. This included reporting it to proper authorities, pursuing legal action, and proactively taking steps to further strengthen our stringent security measures that are already in place.
Additionally, we have engaged an independent, third-party cyber-security firm to conduct a review of what happened and help us further protect the security and integrity of our data. We are proud of the hard work, devotion to our artist driven mission, and tremendous accomplishments of our over one hundred employees in Norway and fifty more in the United States. We look forward to sharing with them, and all of our partners, the results of the review once completed.”
