Jay Z’s streaming music service, Tidal, has been subject to lots of criticism here and around the music industry. And while we can’t imagine anyone subscribing to the service just for exclusives that always end up leaking, somebody out there is using it. Business Insider reports that Jay Z has been calling these people to personally thank them for using Tidal. According to Tidal and Roc Nation exec Vania Schlogel — the woman who opened up that ridiculous press conference — Jack White and some of the other Tidal stakeholders have been calling fans too:
Musicians involved in Tidal are given their own accounts on the site which they can use to monitor who listens to their music, and to see statistics about how their albums are performing. Schlogel says that part of that system is the ability to see contact information of users so that musicians can get in touch with them directly.
So I guess if you’ve been really desperate for a phone call from Win Butler, now you know how to get it.
