If you’re a Jay Z fan who prefers deep cuts to brushing dirt off your shoulder, the rapper’s upcoming concert could be a dream come true—as long as you sign up for his streaming service Tidal.
Just a few days after going on the defensive about his Spotify rival, Jay announced its latest promotion: a b-sides concert whose setlist will feature material that hasn’t been performed in a decade, or ever. (As for that rumored Jay Z-Beyoncé collaborative album for Tidal, well…we’re still waiting.)
The concert, set to take place on May 13 in an “intimate New York City venue” according to the announcement, will be live-streamed on the Tidal website for subscribers. But fans can win tickets to the event by curating a playlist on Tidal and sharing it on Twitter with the hashtag #TIDALXJAYZ. The winners will be chosen based on the quality of the sequencing and the diversity of genres and artists, which means its time to put those mixtape skills to work if you want to get close to Hov—or, if you’re lucky, any of the other famous Tidal owners who could probably be persuaded to make a special appearance.
