*Jay Z is reaching deep into his bag of tricks to get his Tidal music streaming service off the ground.
According to ET Online, word has it that he’s planning a duet album with wife Beyonce that will only be available to Tidal subscribers.
Fuse host DJ Skee reported Wednesday that the album is nearly done, and that he’s been talking about this project since September.
Rap producer Detail, who won his first career Grammy this year for the pair’s duet single “Drunk In Love,” has also implied that Bey and Jay have been collaborating on a project.
“I’m working with a couple of new projects that I don’t want to unveil, and then me and Beyonce and Jay Z are actually doing something together this year,” Detail told Billboard back in February. “When you think of Jay and Bey together, you think ‘album.’ You should already know.”
As previously reported, Tidal is having a slow start despite a business plan that promises exclusives from top tier artists. The streaming site’s two major exclusives thus far — Rihanna’s new song/video “American Oxygen” and Beyonce’s “Die With You” home video — were both leaked elsewhere within minutes of being posted.
