Newly taken over by the multimillionaire rapper as part of a $56 million deal for its parent Aspiro, Tidal now offers users the entire music catalog of Taylor Swift… almost. Despite showing its image and songs on the website's service, Swift's multi-platinum selling album, "1989," will not be available to its users.
Tidal is a premium music streaming service, which requires users to pay out $19.99 every month, if they want to experience "high fidelity sound quality, high definition music videos and expertly curated editorial." Her music is also available on streaming platforms Beats Music and Rhapsody, which requires payment like Tidal.
This backs up comments Swift made throughout last year, saying that musicians should be compensated appropriately for the music they produce.
"It's my opinion that music should not be free, and my prediction is that individual artists and their labels will someday decide what an album's price point is," Swift wrote when talking about the value of music, in an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal, last July.
