:: Out of all of the musicians turning their back on Tidal, Grimes is one of the few (not invested in the company, of course) to defend the streaming service. The singer, who is fittingly managed by Jay Z’s Roc Nation, stated in a since-deleted Instagram post: “People have characterized tidal negatively but I promise it’s 100% artist friendly, and fan friendly since yall have the option to pay the same rate as other streaming respect to everyone involved for doing the right thing for struggling artists – this kind of thing is so important, especially for indie music!” [The FADER]
