Sprint Purchases Portion of Tidal

Tidal is the streaming service created by Jay Z and just recently Sprint decided they wanted to be a part of the streaming service world as well. They purchased 33% of the company, allowing them to provide Tidal to their near 50 million customers.

The purchase by Sprint cost them $200 according to Billboard, but that should be worth it considering how big streaming services are these days. Jay Z as well as many of the other artists who own a portion of the company will stay on as partners.

Back in March of 2015 the two had apparently agreed upon a deal to become partners, but there were no financial obligations involved. Instead they said they were working to make both sides better in this medium.

Adele to Perform at the Grammys

The Grammys are less than a month away, so the details surrounding this show continue to pour out. The latest great bit of news we have received is that Adele will be performing at this year’s award show!

With her album being released late in 2015, she was not eligible for last year’s Grammys therefore her “25” album will be doing damage to the 2017 Grammys instead.

She has won 10 Grammys in her time as an artist and we think she’ll add to that total come February 12. She’s up for five nominations including the big one, Album of the Year. Other previously announced performers include Carrie Underwood, John Legend, Metallica and Keith Urban.

Previewing Record of the Year at the Grammys

On December 6 the world found out what albums were up for the prestigious award Record of the Year at the 2017 Grammys. We’re trying to wait patiently, but we can’t sit here too long wondering who will take home this piece of hardware!

There are five nominees for this one and all five are worth of winning. The great thing about this year’s award is that it covers so many genres of music. Adelle’s “Hello” is a classic album that will be known forever and Beyonce’s “Formation” took over the world from the minute it was released. Both were surprise releases and saw benefits from doing so.

Lukas Graham’s “7 Years” has to be the underdog in this battle, but it’s hard not to love the track “7 Years” off this one. Rihanna and Drake’s “Work” was entrancing with its music and lyrics making it the second hip-hop record up for this one. Finally, “Stressed Out” from Twenty One Pilots was not only a star in the world of rock, but also top 40 music as well.

The Grammys are taking place February 12 and will be hosted by James Carden.
