Beyonce’s Lemonade album has been quite the hit but it was not possible for fans to stream it on Apple Music. The album has long been an exclusive to Tidal, the music streaming service co-owned by her and her husband, Jay-Z. However, the album is now making its way to other music streaming services like Apple Music and Spotify.
Tidal has often used exclusives from some of the biggest names in music to draw in more subscribers. It has a strategy that has somewhat paid off for the fledgling music streaming service. However, the strategy hasn’t been enough to put Tidal in the same league as Spotify and Apple Music, which remains the two widely used music streaming services on the planet.
Some of the biggest stars including Nicki Minaj and Rihanna have offered their music exclusively on Tidal. Beyonce’s album was perhaps one of the biggest exclusives on Tidal for a long time. Lemonade makes its way to Tidal’s competing music streaming services three years after it was first released.
The singer’s latest live album, titled Homecoming: The Live Album, has already dropped. It features 38 of her hits in addition to two bonus studio tracks. The live album is already available on music streaming services other than Tidal.
