Jay Z performs onstage during TIDAL X: Brooklyn at Barclays Center of Brooklyn on October 17, 2017, in NY.
Still, Tidal is not alone when it comes to losing money in the streaming music game.
For comparison, Spotify is killing the competition with an estimated 60 million subscribers, while Apple Music has more than 30 million - light years ahead of Tidal, even if the 3 million subscriber count is even close to being accurate.
JAY-Z's Tidal may be on the verge of sinking.
The claim is seemingly based on a comment made by the president of the sports side of Jay-Z's Roc Nation business - Juan Perez - back in January, after Sprint took a 33% stake in the streaming service.

A 2016 Dagens Næringsliv report also claimed that JAY-Z was inflating user numbers - Tidal said previous year it had hit 3 million subscribers, but the newspaper claimed the number was closer to 1 million.
Tidal has had its moments. He said at the time that the deal gave Tidal "sufficient working capital for the next twelve to eighteen months".
Tidal is far from the only streaming service to lose money a year ago.
That didn't stop Jay Z from saying that the service had 3 million users half a year later, when in fact the real figure stood at 850,000.
Since then, West left Tidal and the two have traded legal pleasantries about their future, according to a report from TMZ.
