TIDAL and Apple Music keep throwing punches at each other.
Over the weekend, TIDAL said Apple was not letting them livestream Drake’s performance from a charity concert put on by Lil Wayne. TIDAL broadcast the rest of the concert, but said Apple threatened to sue them if they showed Drake’s performance.
Drake’s manager Future the Prince tells Buzzfeed that TIDAL is lying.
He says he made a business decision to not stream Drake’s performance because of lack of control of over the aesthetics of the stream. He also says:
“I don’t understand. If you’re going to say something about the situation publicly, you should tell the truth. They saw the opportunity to take a situation and spin it in their favor as a publicity stunt.”
In response, TIDAL said:
“We have all the email receipts and written correspondence that took place with said, blocked performance. That being said we choose to keep it classy.”
But where are the emails, TIDAL?
And tweeting complaints about a rival company doesn’t really come across as classy…
