Did Tidal Lie About Kanye West’s ‘The Life Of Pablo’ Streaming Numbers?

Just in time for its one-year anniversary, Tidal has announced that it has garnered more than 3 million global subscribers. This adds 2.5 million to the 540K it had at it’s launch, most likely from the prior version of the service before Jay Z acquired it. Tidal also says that Kanye West’s exclusive album, ‘The Life of Pablo’ was streamed 250 million times in its first 10 days of release. Hits Daily Double says that while they aren’t math wizards, something certainly doesn’t add up.

“We took off our shoes and socks so we could count on both fingers and toes and our rough calculation is that 3m goes into 250m about 80 times. Which means that every single one of Tidal’s paid subscribers have played Pablo in its entirety eight times a day every day for 10 days, said HDD.”
