The video teaser for the app features cameos from big name artists like Beyonce, Madonna, Daft Punk and Kanye.
During the press release it was announced that many of these artists also including J. Cole, Rihanna, Alicia Keys, and Nicki Minaj are co-owners of the company.
This is major for the music world as it was recently reported that album sales made 1.85 billion compared to music streaming services that made 1.87 billion in 2014.
It will be interesting to see how artist involvement with the app and these numbers play out.
Taylor Swift is one of a few artists who pulled their music from Spotify due to the sales issue that comes with streaming, but has her music available on the Tidal app.
Just like any subscription based service, the app is free, but you do have to pay a monthly fee.
After a 30-day free trial Tidal is 9.99 for its premium services and 19.99 for Hi-fi.
