TIDAL steps their game up this morning, with the release of a new exclusive from Usher, featuring Nas and "Bitch Better Have My Money" songwriter Bibi Bourelly. Finally, they've allowed non-TIDAL subscribers access to the exclusive, releasing the record to the public in a unique player. There's a catch. You need to keep the tab open in order to play the cut, as well as activate your webcam. If you look away or change tabs, the song stops playing. By forcing you to watch the screen, you'll see various victims of police brutality and a description of the related incident appear on the screen, including highly-publicized cases like Trayvon Martin, as well as lesser-known ones, including victims like Ramarley Graham.
It's a bit unsettling that they need to access your webcam, however the site claims that they won't be taking or storing any photso/audio of you. You'll want to stay til the end, cause that's when Nas' verse comes through.
I am Sugar Ray Robinson, Booker T. Washington
W. E. B. Du Bois, I'm the modern one
Yelling at Senators, Presidents, Congressmen
We got a problem that needs some acknowledgement
I am no prison commodity, not just a body you throw in a cell
For any reason, just to bother me
Just for your quota, so it's rest in peace to Sean Bell
