We were wondering how and why Tidal got the exclusive new track “Glory” from Lil Wayne, and now we know. According to Consequence of Sound Lil Wayne is the newest artist owner of the music streaming company. Read what senior excutive at TIDAL Vania Schlogel, had to say:
“We’re honored for Lil Wayne to join TIDAL. His eagerness to release an exclusive TIDAL track and schedule a TIDAL X performance is just another example of how passionately artists care about getting their music to fans.”
Yesterday Lil Wayne had social social media going crazy after he announced he signed a deal with Jay Z. Fans seemed to be confused if Wayne was referring to a new record deal or a deal with Tidal. Seeing how Cash Money Records won’t even release Wayne’s Carter 5 album they damn sure are not releasing him out of his contract. Wayne’s manager cleared up the rumors and confirmed he was talking about his deal with Tidal.
Cortez Bryant tells Billboard,
“When Wayne was speaking about the partnership with Jay Z, he was speaking about his new deal as an artist owner with Tidal.”
