Probably from the contract that bears his and P's signatures...

Fingers crossed for newer non warners stuff - maybe phase three? The word ‘compiling’ is a little worrying - sounding as if there isn’t something that was kinda ready to go. Really hope for Black is the new black but isn’t that rumoured to be with bluenote. But this could be good news. New stuff - which I would prefer from tidal and historic old stuff from Warner’s.

They should fall out and try to outdo the others release. 2019 tho. That’s a bit of a wait!

Black is the New Black is a bunch of instrumental fusion isn’t it? I’d much rather have almost anything else.

Looking forward to this collection.
Here's hoping Jay-Z & Tidal pick some great material.
Fingers crossed.

ALRIGHT!

MORE PRINCE!

Even so...we could take even more Prince! Get it Prince Estate?

Monthly or weekly DAMNIT!

Hurry up and get the music and video to us! We haven't heard any arrangements about the release of more Prince video, besides the 'Nothing Compares...' video.

Now, we want more information on the video front and we'll be happy...or happier, at least. Not truly happy, since P is gone but you get the idea...

Oh, FFS. I'm nowhere near a JAY-Z stan, but let's look at it pragmatically (and leave the "bloated streaming statistics" allegations out of this particular situation):

1) Prince had an exclusive streaming deal with Tidal before his passing, barring WB-era stuff.

2) upon Prince's death (whether it was right or wrong), Tidal released almost all of '96- (then) present-day released material. Tidal didn't get that audio out of thin air, especially the NPGMC stuff in the quality that was streamed. Prince provided it to them somehow. The fact that Tidal may or may not have released it without consent is of no consequence because we don't know what the actual contract or agreement stated. It very well could have been a handshake deal where P told Jay that he very well could have done whatever he wanted with the music in terms of streaming at a certain time. I have my suspicions that the plan was to release the discography on Tidal June 7, 2016 as a birthday surprise - even though he didn't celebrate, but actually "celebrated" at Paisley from time to time.

3) There were also deals in place to release P&M and BITNB (most likely on Tidal initially), so obviously P trusted Jay and Tidal.

The only ones that complained about the deal with Tidal were the ones that are currently fighting among themselves, while putting out their own ego-driven material (as much as I may have somewhat enjoyed John L's album, let's keep it real: no one would care about a Joseph Jackson album - even if it were produced by Tito) and hiring other singers to perform their brother's music.

Did anyone see the 5/9/18 Forbes article claiming Tidal inflated Beyoncé and Yeszy streaming numbers? And the estate just settle with him. Sad

If you think TIDAL is the only streaming company allegedly doing that, you're fooling yourself. Sales generally don't mean anything anymore - clicks and streams do.

This is great news. If this and the WB album go ahead as planned, then this could be the beginning of a constant stream of vault material.

Me too! Even better if we are served an album of unreleased Warner Brothers material in September as an appetizer.

Exactly. The more support Tidal receives for this the more likely we will see further post-Warners vault material released on the service.

Tidal were Prince's only choice as a streaming platform during his lifetime after all.

Makes me sad to know so many hands have hold of his work. If anything is released I would prefer it to be compiled considerately by an individual or individuals of expert opinion and great knowledge surrounding his work. Releases which are sympathetic to eras and work he was producing during that time.

Jay z choosing songs to put on an album? Man. His legacy deserves more.

Hmmm.. since Prince chose a partnership with JayZ over any of the major streaming services seems Tidal would be the better he deserves.

Why the hate for JayZ?

Of course I'm always excited to get new Prince music. The only thing I find worrisome, and slightly nauseating, is that Jay Z is involved in compiling the tracklist. I don't think he should have access to the vault.

Good. Hopefully this finally resolves speculation here about any wrongdoing on Tidal's part. Far from having to remove music or be penalised, Tidal are receiving an additional album of unreleased music.

yeahthat That was also my first thought.

I disagree. Prince trusted JayZ, and I do, too.

co sign....

But nt just becasue Prince Trusted him

Becasue I have seen JAYZ Grow and mature as a man and a Person..

Im proud of the way he literlally grew UP and OUT of the Gutters...

Tidal only gets to stream this album for 14 days.

I can wait.

It resolves both the Estate and Federal lawsuits.

Settlements = compromise.
