TIDAL Accused Of Failing To Pay Record Labels On Time

How can this be? I thought Jay-Z said he was going to treat artists better than Spotify when he took over? And isn't he a billionaire? Seems odd someone that rich can pay bills.

And today, fresh revelations from Dagens N√¶ringsliv suggest that TIDAL is significantly behind with its royalty payments to music industry rights-holders.
