“After one meeting, it was obvious that Jay Z and the team he has assembled at TIDAL recognize and applaud the effort that real musicians put in 2 their craft 2 achieve the very best they can at this pivotal time in the music industry. Secondly, TIDAL have honored us with a non-restrictive arrangement that once again allows Us to continue making art in the fashion We’ve grown accustomed 2 and We’re Extremely grateful 4 their generous support“, the statement read.
It concluded saying, “and lastly, in the tech-savvy, real-time world We all live in 2day, everything is faster. From its conception and that one & only meeting, ‘HITNRUN’ took about 90 days 2 prepare its release. If that’s what freedom feels like, ‘HITNRUN’ is what it sounds like“.
