今年もまた、ソウル・トレイン大賞の季節がやってきました。明日、11月29日夜8時、BETにて “Soul Train Awards 2015” が放映されます。Rケリー、タイリース、ファンティジア、ブランディ、ボーイズIIメン、カメオ(え、あのCameo?)など、パフォーマンスも盛りだくさん。なんと、司会にエリカ・バドゥが抜擢されたとか。エリカ・バドゥといえば、音楽性もさながら、いつもあっと驚くような奇抜なことをすることでよく知られています。覚えていますか、突然 DJ Lo Down Loretta Brown と名乗り、クラブやイベントでスピンしていたことを……..。ホストとしてもいろいろ面白いことをしてくれること請け合い。

Jay Z Bringing Beyoncé and Prince to Barclays Center for Charity Concert

Jay Z’s Tidal Streaming Service Has Split The Music Industry Apart ……?
When Jay Z launched Tidal at a star-studded event in March, it was with the aim of saving the music business: a vow to give artists a fair share of revenue than other streaming services such as Spotify. And he wasn’t alone, either. Kanye West, Beyonce, Usher, Calvin Harris, Deadmau5, Madonna, Nicki Minaj, Coldplay, Rihanna, Daft Punk, Jack White and Arcade Fire all joined him for the bash in New York, each pledging to create a fairer system for musicians.

Jay Z and all starsSince then, though, its found itself a target of constant criticism. Mumford And Sons, Lily Allen and Noel Gallagher have all questioned its purpose and doubted whether it will ever achieve its goals. People have claimed its a model that only favours mainstream acts – the ones least at threat by streaming in general – and that it’s little more than a vanity project.

Jay Z - TidalSpotify co-founder Martin Lorentzon
“I would say that I have 99 problems but Jay Z is not one of them.”

Jay Z Bringing Beyoncé and Prince to Barclays Center for Charity Concert

Prince - TidalSo, the rapper Jay Z will have friends, family and business associates on hand at Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Oct. 20 for “Tidal X: 1020,” a charity concert to celebrate his underdog streaming music service. In addition to Jay Z, the night’s performers include his wife, Beyoncé, and a handful of Tidal’s high-profile partners: Prince, Usher, Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne and more.

The company said in an announcement that all ticket proceeds would support charities and that New World Foundation, which focuses on civil rights issues, would administer all funds, in association with Sankofa.org, a social justice nonprofit founded by Harry Belafonte. The event’s Ticketmaster page states that donations will benefit “nonprofit organizations dedicated to advancing positive community relations and effecting systemic change for the development and sustainability of just societies.”

Tickets will be available, for $74-$244.
