TIDAL is reimagining the artist-fan dynamic with the launch of their Direct Artist Payouts Program; an innovative program that allocates up to 10% of HiFi Plus tier subscribers monthly fees to the artist they listen to most. In alliance with TIDAL’s mission to empower creatives, Vydia has partnered with TIDAL on this initiative by allowing direct access to this feature through our robust platform, at no additional cost and with no associated fees. The artist will earn 100% of revenue earned through this program, allowing them to benefit directly and significantly from the support of their fans. 


Of the program, Vydia CEO and Co-Founder Roy LaManna says, “TIDAL is consistently pushing the boundaries to best provide opportunities for both artists and their fans. Allowing direct artist payments is the future of streaming and creates a more fair payment system which will directly benefit the independent community. Moves like this directly align with Vydia’s mission of empowering the independent artist and label and we’re excited to be part of this launch.


Artists can now earn money directly from their loyal fans, and fans can play a larger role in the success of their go-to artists.
