Following allegations by the New York Post late last month, it would appear that Samsung is not in fact planning on buying out Jay Z’s TIDAL streaming service. Of course, such an influx of capital would be considered a much-needed aid to the somewhat failing project, despite the streaming service having played host to the exclusive launch of both Rihanna’s Anti and Kanye West’s The Life of Pablo.

Stay tuned for further updates.
