Kanye West has reportedly quit streaming service Tidal, alleging a breach of contract on the company’s side.
West was one of Tidal’s biggest acts, with his The Life of Pablo being one of the label’s biggest ever exclusives.
According to TMZ, West left the Jay-Z-owned service because he’s owed money from The Life Of Pablo and subsequent music videos.
The sum is a reported $3 million, and both parties tried to settle but talks broke down. Tidal is now said to be planning to sue West if he tries to sign with another streaming service.
West “has left the company over a money dispute and Tidal has threatened to sue him,” TMZ reported on Sunday. Citing unnamed sources, the publication said “Kanye has complained the company owes him money—more than $3 million.”
The news comes as the relationship between Jay-Z and Kanye West remains strained.
More bad news for the service is that Hov’s new album, 4:44 is only going to be exclusive to Tidal for one week.
