Apple Music Reportedly Threatened Tidal With A $20 Million Lawsuit Over A Drake Performance!
Complex – Apple Music just upped the ante in an ongoing streaming war with Jay Z’s Tidal. According to PageSix, Apple Music threatened Tidal with a $20 million lawsuit over a potential Drake appearance at Lil Wayne’s Lil WeezyAna Fest in New Orleans tonight (August 28). PageSix reports that Drake planned to make an appearance at the concert, a benefit for Weezy’s Tha Carter Fund on the tenth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, and Apple Music executives threatened legal action due to the show being streamed on Tidal. While Drake’s exclusive deal with Apple Music isn’t public information, the site hints that the Canadian rapper’s cross-platform performance on Tidal would constitute a breach of contract.
