    Dan Rys, writing for Billboard, on TIDAL’s recently released streaming and subscriber numbers. Apparently Kanye West‘s The Life of Pablo was streamed 250 million times in the first 10 days of release.

    Tidal also finally released numbers for Kanye West’s The Life of Pablo streams for the first time, after West requested the service withhold the numbers when the album first became available in February. According to Tidal, Pablo surpassed 250 million streams in its first 10 days of release. Pablo, which West previously said would only ever exist on Tidal, has been going through some changes in real time of late as the artist updates certain tracks, and just yesterday made the single “Famous,” featuring Rihanna, available on both Apple Music and Spotify, ending his Tidal-only crusade.

    If Jay-Z has said that Tidal were inflating subscriber numbers, is it possible they are doing the same here? I love this album, but I cannot see it being streamed that many times in 10 days. 100mill would be more believable imo...
