He has sold his majority stake of the company, meaning all our girls cash in on their piece of the pie.

Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey, is scheduled to buy Jay Z‘s streaming platform, Tidal. In a $297M deal, Dorsey, who is also the CEO of Square, has acquired a majority stake in the service in a bid to expand his mobile payment company’s tools to emerging and established artists, and Tidal will now operate independently within Square.

Additional components of the deal are, in very Jay Z-esque fashion, Jigga joining Square’s board of directors, which will coincide with the recent fund he and Dorsey launched in February to “make bitcoin the internet’s currency.”

  • Neither of our girls have publicly addressed the sale, but we’re sure they have something up their sleeve to celebrate this investment. Rihanna is coming off of a March 1 Savage launch, Nicki is dealing with personal issues while balancing being a new mom, and Beyonce has us all waiting by the mailbox for our Ivy Park boxes.

But personally, of the streaming wars, I’ve always rocked with Tidal (because it belong(ed) to the black guy), so I’m excited to see the direction it goes from here!
