Jay will run through rarely performed songs from his catalog on May 13. Tidal users must submit a playlist to the service for a chance to win tickets. The concert will stream live on the platform.

The company’s co-owners Jack White and J. Cole recently held their own live streamed concerts via Tidal. Other exclusives have included video premieres by Beyoncé and access to the Erykah Badu film “They By Dawn.”

Since its star-studded relaunch in March, Tidal has struggled to gain traction. According to Jay, the service now has over 750,000 subscribers, but the company’s application has fallen out of the top 700 on Apple’s App Store chart.

The “On to the Next One” rapper claims certain companies are running a smear campaign against Tidal, and other sources have alleged Apple is actively trying to sabotage the success of the platform.
