Is Jay-Z’s Tidal music service failing?
Too soon to know.
Tidal, the new music streaming service from Jay Z, already looks like a wash. Less than a month after launching, it is sitting in the deep, subterranean reaches of the App Store’s U.S. app charts, at No. 664. By comparison, Spotify, the leader in on-demand streaming, is the 17th most downloaded app in America. Beats Music, which is in the middle of getting a major revamp from owner Apple, is in 58th place. “Any hot new app will see a big drop in downloads after the hype from its launch dies down, but it doesn’t look like Tidal was all that hot to begin with,” Gawker’s Jay Hathaway noted Wednesday. “It briefly peaked at #19 overall before falling out of the top 200 less than two weeks later.”
