Beyonce may have directed some f-bombs at anyone who thought she cares about streaming numbers, but her surprise album with husband Jay-Z is available to stream pretty much everywhere two days after it dropped on Tidal.
Tidal's exclusive on Beyoncé and Jay-Z's album Everything is Love lasted about 48 hours -- a quick turnaround for a service positioning itself as a velvet-rope home to exclusive content from its megastar owners.
Jay-Z and Beyoncé, along with a host of other marquee music stars, launched Tidal three year ago on the premise it was a music service by artists, for artists -- and would unlock material from those big-name stars that you couldn't get anywhere else.
So when the Carters (Sean Carter, aka Jay-Z, and Beyonce Knowles-Carter) released Everything is Love on Saturday, one thing that came as no surprise was that it was exclusively on Tidal.
In the album's track Nice, Beyonce raps: "If I gave two fucks about streaming numbers / would have put Lemonade up on Spotify."
But two days later, this newest record is on Spotify and many other streaming services Monday.
