According to the source, West claims the subscription service owes him “more than $3 million” from the release of his hit record The Life of Pablo.

West alleges the album “resulted in 1.5 million new subscribers to Tidal, for which he was supposed to get a bonus but the company hasn’t paid.” The “Ultralight Beam” rapper is also claiming Tidal did not compensate him for his music videos.

West is one of Tidal’s initial 16 artist-owners.
