so what you’re saying is get spotify even if it pays crap. which is what i’ve been saying and posting links about.
as for youtube— true, true, true. a lot of people use it as a music player.
I’m not saying that. I’m saying I’m not sure what I’d say. If I were in an active band I might try to subvert this shit. I’d probably use bandcamp exclusively actually. But my friends who are in bands are — mostly — on all of the services except for Tidal, which is weird, right?
Yeah Tidal is the Jay-Z thing. I don’t think Madonna had anything to do with it, but could be wrong. Founded by Jay, with Daft Punk, Beyoncé, Coldplay, Kanye, Lil Wayne back when he was still semi-relevant, and a few others. At this point it’s basically just a “4:44” app. I dunno. I had it when the last Kanye album was exclusively available through it, and I got it again when 4:44 was exclusively available through it. Deleted my account in short order both times. It’s expensive. Apple should buy it.
I don’t know about YouTube Red, the music exclusive player thingy. Maybe that’s better. Maybe it pays more than YouTube did. Shrug.
