What the hell is this?

So I went on Tidal this morning to check out Prince's page to see if there might be anything new as per the PR Deluxe release. Tidal had previously released Electric Intercourse as a single, so I was hoping for something similar to happen on his birthday. Instead of something by P, there was a single(credited to Prince) called "JUNKIE" on his singles page. It is most definitely NOT a Prince composition.
I'm very dismayed that Tidal would allow this. It seems in very poor taste. Does anyone have any info on why this was done?

Yeah it's there. Can't understand the words but it's talking about loving money. I don't get the point of placing a single right there.

I'm intrigued that something like that could "slip" it smacks of arrogance. Screen cap it. Date it. I'd like to hear it as well

Apparently, the folks running Tidal have gone bat shit crazy! Because that's the ONLY thing that can explain THIS:



I don't have Tidal and after this I damn sure NEVER will! But this is on FB and the person that posted it said the song that sctually plays is Prince's Money Don't Matter Tonight. mad

Relax, child. Clearly another artist is using the name Prince has as uploaded the song. Here's the cheap ass video: https://www.youtube.com/w...txnuVEdXKU

I'm sure he'll get a cease & desist soon.

Babynoz: The other thread got locked (dupe), but I wanted to reply to your comment (see below):

.

I'm not buying any explanations for one reason.....in the other thread it indicates that this trash was posted on June 7th. If that is the case then somebody got some 'splaining to do. Correct me if I'm wrong, but why that date?


It was myself and I MJcarousal, I believe who told y'all before that Mr. Tidal is shady as hell but some are still under the delusion that he was P's bff. icon_eek.gif If he was then why is it that J NEVER issued any kind of statement on P's passing? The only thing he did was boast on stage about having those masters in his hands because he thought he had it made, but he was wrong.

I didn't see him or hear his name mentioned at any of the several memorials that were held either.

And don't get me started on that end run he tried to make around the estate with the help of Pimp Hubby.

If he and J were such tight buddies then why did George Lopez literally have to put up the $$ for the cremation and wake that was held??? Why not one of his closest business associates? Someone that Prince benefitted greatly just by lending his name to Tidal.



One of the last messages that Prince left us was that image of himself with his third eye open.....everything doesn't need to be spelled out for people who heed that message.

But hey you're supposed to stand by your own. That's what they tell ya, all the frikkin' time.


Don't care about their issues with the Estate, there are means and pathways they have at their disposal to deal with the Estate. These are rich mofos. This is something that fans are dropping their hard cold cash to see and take part in, so to me this is a big azzed finger to the fans because Prince ain't feeling none of this foolishness.

Apparently the rapper's name is Prince Lawson Jr. Unfortunately if that's his government name he can use it. The original Prince's family may want to look into this. Maybe persuade the dude to use his entire name or some other name to avoid confusion in the future. However, I'm sure this is a gimmick to get some attention.

I have Tidal, but I can't say when the song was originally posted. However, Prince Rogers Nelson does not play when I click it. The rap song actually plays.

I'm not sure how streaming works. Can anyone think of other artists with the same name? I'd like to look them up to see if their music is lumped together.

I think that's a different one. Prince something-or-other or something-or-other Prince. This guy is using just one name: "Prince".

By the way, it's still up and it doesn't play a Prince song.

Hopefully this will be down quickly. I am so disgusted at Tidal. Have any of you guys been on the video on YouTube. The guy who made that crap thinks he is so hilarious well we'll see how hilarious he feels in the next few days or so.
I saw this this morning and I've been working on getting it took down since
Hopefully we see a result in the coming days.
