A new high-fidelity streaming music service by Jay Z launches Monday. TIDAL was acquired by the rapper last month as part of a $56 million dollar deal with the Scandinavian platform Aspiro.
Full details of the service will be announced during a press conference on Monday. However, according to TIDAL’s website, it’s “the first music streaming service that combines the best High Fidelity sound quality, High Definition music videos and expertly Curated Editorial.”
There are two paid subscription options: $19.99 a month for high-fidelity audio, and $9.99 for standard quality audio. TIDAL can be streamed on the web, and downloaded for iOS and Android devices.
Several artists have already thrown their support behind TIDAL, changing their Twitter icons and Facebook Profiles to light blue and tweeting the hashtag #TIDALForAll. Among them, Rihanna, Calvin Haris, Kanye West and Jack White’s Third Man Records.
Kim Kardashian can be seen straddling her fiancé topless while he steers a motorcycle through the desert for his ‘Bound 2’ music video.
This music video is “Bound 2” embarrass their 5-month-old daughter one day.
Kanye West takes fiancée Kim Kardashian for a wild, naked joyride in his new “Bound 2” music video, in which the 33-year-old reality star straddles her fully-clothed man while he steers a motorcycle through a desert.
The 36-year-old rapper debuted the provocative clip featuring the mother of his child on an episode of Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show ”Ellen” Tuesday.
The video starts by showing off the sexy silhouette of Kardashian’s post-baby body as she is sprawled across the bike.
When West belts out the lyric “one good girl is worth a thousand bitches,” the parents of infant North West engage in a steamy embrace and start making out.
A source gave an advance tease on Kardashian’s vixen role in the video to Us Weekly on Monday, calling it “really sexy.”
“Kim looks beyond gorgeous,” the insider said. “It’s very artsy, very beautiful.
“The imagery is very colorful and light,” the insider continued. “Nothing about it feels pop or urban. She looks incredible.”
DeGeneres questioned the notoriously erratic rapper whether being a new father has made him more conscious of how he expresses himself in public — then went one step further, asking if he thinks the video, directed by Nick Knight, comes off as “dirty.”
“No, I’m not as concerned with the idea of profanity or nudity,” West said. “It’s more the messaging behind it.”
The narcissistic superstar, who was set to perform at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn Tuesday, said his daughter will get a healthy dose of tough love.
“She is going to be in the real world, so she’s going to hear things and see things,” the “Yeezus” artist said. “I think she’s gotta be prepared for that.”
The singer went on to gush about how “awesome” his bride-to-be is, and why Kardashian deserved the lavish, baseball stadium-sized proposal at AT&T Park in San Francisco on her birthday last month.
“She’s an important person, (and) when I was at my lowest moments I could get on the phone with her and she would make me feel like, you know, I was here for a reason. And I was,” he said.
“It’s incredible to have a woman like that, that you know is not using you for money,” he continued about his relationship with his famous fiancée.
“Her personality is so calming. And I don’t know if that’s the way people would describe my personality,” West, who has been involved in several anger-filled public incidents, told the daytime host.
“I’ll tell you, they would not,” DeGeneres quipped.
Then West brought up another brazen celebrity who proclaimed his love on air — before their relationship crashed and burned.
“It’s almost like people make fun of me for like how in love I actually am. I’m trying to avoid the jump-up-on-the-couch moment, but yeah it’s just, it’s good,” West explains, referring to Tom Cruise’s infamous declaration of his love for Katie Holmes during a 2005 Oprah Winfrey appearance.
Sunday’s Keeping Up With the Kardashians season finale featured the arrival of Kourtney Kardashian‘s daughter, Penelope Scotland Disick, and while Kourtney celebrated her birth, sister Khloe continued to struggle with fertility woes.
Following her visit to a fertility clinic on the September 9 episode with sister, Kim, Khloe learned that she has not been ovulating, thus delaying a possible pregnancy for her and husband of three years Lamar Odom. “What I’m trying to figure out with my body is very frustrating and it doesn’t feel good,” Khloe, 28, reasoned after undergoing another round of ultrasounds and beginning a series of hormone injections.
Kim was sympathetic to her sister’s struggles, but Khloe wasn’t entirely up for discussing her situation with her, Kourtney or their mother, Kris Jenner. “I really appreciate Kim trying to be so positive, but what is this medicine going to do to my body? It’s a lot of stress and pressure — nothing is f–king happening!” she lamented on Sunday’s show. “What I’m going through, it’s not something I have fun talking about over and over and over again and I don’t think my family knows how hard it is for me to talk about it too,” Khloe admitted. “It’s hard for me to be the one of the sisters not to have babies.”
As Khloe continued to struggle, Kim. 31, decided to be proactive in her own family planning and chose to freeze her eggs. Admittedly scared of the procedure — which including giving herself hormone injections — Kanye West‘s girlfriend later realized it was for the best. “I’m glad that I’m freezing my eggs. I can be proactive and I can be prepared when the time comes,” said Kim. “I want to be safe.”
Jenner, 56, remained supportive to all three of her daughters, including Kourtney, who welcomed Penelope, on July 9.
“Looking at Penelope and watching my daughter give birth reminds me it doesn’t get any better than this,” said the Kardashian-Jenner family matriarch. “All I really want at the end of the day is for all my daughters to experience that joy in life.”
That’s how Kanye West has described his large-breasted fake girlfriend, Tweeting confirmation that the track “Perfect B*tch” – which he debuted during a performance in New York City last week – is, indeed, dedicated to this reality star.
Simply put, “I wrote the song Perfect B*tch about Kim,” West wrote on his social networking account.
No word yet on when the song will be officially released, but a Kanye insider tells The Daily News its lyrics are “about his search for the perfect woman and how he has now found the ‘perfect b*tch.'”
