UPDATE: Kanye West tweeted about Tidal again.
EARLIER: Kanye West had nothing but support for his buddy Jay Z’s relaunch of the music streaming service Tidal back in March. He was even one of many artists who had a 3 percent stake in the company. But anyone looking for West’s social media postings about Tidal is now out of luck.
West had been among the artists to promote the launch by changing his avatar to a picture of the Tidal logo. He also posted this tweet on March 30, the day of the launch: “Together, we can turn the tide and make music history. Start by turning your profile picture blue. #TIDALforALL.”
West’s mentions of Tidal, however, have since been deleted. His avatar is now a picture of the My Beautiful Dark Twist Fantasy cover art.
Despite the lost tweets, West has sort of remained a public supporter of Tidal. In an interview with PAPER, West defended his appearance at the relauch.
Jay Z bought Tidal for $56 million in January, and relaunched it with the support of artists like Madonna, Alicia Keys, Beyoncé, Daft Punk, Arcade Fire’s Win Butler and Régine Chassagne, Jack White, J. Cole, Jason Aldean, Kanye West, Deadmau5, Nicki Minaj, Usher and Rihanna.
