TIDAL Is Undergoing a Criminal Investigation in Norway for Falsifying Streaming Numbers

JAY-Z’s TIDAL streaming service is currently undergoing a criminal investigation in Norway for allegedly “faking” streams for Beyoncé’s Lemonade and Kanye West’s The Life of Pablo.

Last year, TIDAL was exposed by Norwegian newspaper Dagens Næringsliv, who obtained a hard drive containing tampered data. Roughly 1.3 million fake accounts were supposedly used to stream the albums, with the streaming service paying out increased royalty fees to the artists and their respective record labels.

After allegations surfaced last year, four police complaints were filed by the Norwegian copyright association Tono SA, the artist organization Gramart, Fono, and the Musicians’ Union in Norway.

On January 14, ØKOKRIM (The Norwegian National Authority for Investigation and Prosecution of Economic and Environmental Crime) confirmed that it has launched a formal criminal investigation regarding the allegations against the company.

In 2015, Norwegian technology company Aspiro was bought out by JAY-Z’s Project Panther Bico Ltd.. Aspiro currently maintains TIDAL.

Make sure to keep your eyes peeled as the story unfolds further.
