The biggest event in Tidal's short history is going down tonight in Brooklyn, as Jay Z is gathering his squad for the Tidal X 10:20 Festival at Barclays. The lineup is stacked from top to bottom, with Hov, Beyoncé, Nicki Minaj, Usher, Travi$ Scott, Meek Mill, Rick Ross, and many more slated to perform. Unlike past Tidal shows, anyone can stream this concert from start to finish. Tickets for the show sold out in minutes, with all proceeds of the concert going to various charities via the New World Foundation.
During the show, Angie Martinez announced Damian Marley as the newest "artist owner" of the platform ahead of his short performance. Not long after, Hit-Boy brought out Drake's famed "ghostwriter" Quentin Miller during a set that also featured a new song premiere.
Later in the night, Rick Ross and French Montana made an interesting song choice by performing their collaborative hit "Stay Schemin," which also features Drake, while Meek Mill was still onstage. Montana also gave an extended shoutout and tribute to his recently passed Coke Boys collaborator Chinx during the set.
Hov and Lil Wayne linked up for a live performance of "Hello Brooklyn 2.0" before Nicki and Beyonce shared the stage for "Feeling Myself." Jay Z and Beyonce followed with "Holy Grail" before the man-of-the-hour closed the showcase with "Empire State of Mind."
