#HNNMusic One Music Reporter's adventure with Jay-Z's new TIDAL

Tidal made a splash in the streaming music scene thanks to its celebrity-studded re-launch that included the likes of Jay Z, Beyonce, Daft Punk, Kanye West, and Madonna -- it was like a gathering of the musical Avengers.

It differentiates itself with lofty claims of high-quality streaming music at the premium price of $19.99, exclusive content from artists (including but not limited to those in attendance,) and paying artists (including but not limited to those in attendance) more royalties from streaming -- something top competitor Spotify is often criticized about.

All of that sounded good to me and I was eager to sign-up. After months of having performance problems with my current beau, Spotify, I was ready to jump into something new and improved. I was ready to move -- as Jay Z, owner of Tidal, once said -- onto the next one. As a huge music nerd, this is my personal experience with Tidal, but stay tuned for CNET's full review of the service soon.
