Things are moving super fast! A little too fast! We can’t keep up with all the good stuff that drops every day on the interwebs. While we try post every new track, album, mixtape, video, and MP3 download that we love on the site, it’s impossible to post everything, which means some quality newness gets missed. So, we serve up The Leftovers.

This week Jay Z relaunched Tidal backed by a slew of A-list friends. Kanye West, Rihanna, Coldplay, Madonna, Alicia Keys, Beyoncé and more threw their weight behind the rapper at a press conference on Monday where he unveiled the new look. “Tidal Premium” now matches Spotify’s Premium price at £9.99. That’s a full 50% price cut, and it puts one Tidal tier in-line with its main competition. But that low price comes at a cost: inferior music quality. The new subscription offers only “standard” quality audio: to get the “lossless high fidelity”quality streams, the company charges a monthly subscription of £19.99 – double its rivals. It is available in 31 countries, with six more to follow by the end of June.
