Kanye’s latest album The Life of Pablo was released as a TIDAL exclusive earlier this year. That project, along with exclusives like Beyonc├®’s LEMONADE and Rihanna’s ANTI, helped the streaming service gain ground on Apple Music and Spotify.

For its part, Apple also has a team of stars on its roster. That list includes Drake, DJ Khaled, Future, and Chance the Rapper, who’ve all released exclusive projects this year.
