Jay Z announced a massive charity concert to celebrate 1 million subscribers on Tidal and the lineup is sick
“Nothing real can be threatened, nothing unreal exists” Tidal is platinum. 1,000,000 people and counting. Let’s celebrate 10/20 Brooklyn.

Jay Z took to Twitter, rvre enough an event itself, to announce that his Tidal music streaming service had reached the 1,000,000-subscriber threshold. Amid all the negative chatter about the service, Hov felt it was time to celebrate. To mark the occasion, he announced a one-day festival inside the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. The lineup is fucking insane, because Jay likes to flex even when he’s curating. The artist formerly known as The Artist Formerly Known As Prince is going to be there… Prince. Also, Beyonce, Lil Wayne, Usher, and the list goes on. Does Jay Z say lit?
