Jay-Z's Tidal under investigation over streaming numbers

Tidal, a subscription-based music and video streaming service owned by rapper Jay-Z, is being investigated in Norway over allegations of falsely inflating listening numbers.

The investigations follow ongoing reports by Norwegian newspaper Dagens Næringsliv that the music streaming service had inflated its listening numbers of artists such as Beyonce and Kanye West. [Bloomberg]

Nope. It is done by deflating numbers of all others, as total numbers can be easy verified. See in my post, completely disgusting.
