Tidal vs. Spotify: Indie hip hop producers release album on both and declare a surprising winner

Tidal seemed like a service with such promise, but a botched launch caused the iPhone app’s popularity to plummet soon after it was released. Jay-Z’s music service was supposed to be a haven for music fans and artists alike, giving fans access to higher-quality premium tracks while ensuring that artists — independent artists in particular — make more money in the process. Then, to promote Tidal to the world, the service paraded around a bunch of multi-millionaires no one wants to support.

However, to achieve files sizes that average about 1 MB per minute of audio, MP3s drop a good deal of quality.
