Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter and Tidal are currently facing a class-action lawsuit from Yesh Music, LLC and John Emanuele for their band American Dollar and the music streaming service’s failure to pay the band any royalties.

Tidal streamed 116 of the band’s copyrighted songs without paying back any royalty payments in the process. Not only that, but the suit also claims Tidal used faulty numbers to make payments to artists and may have undercut the money they owed to artists by as much as 35 percent, since they don’t provide streaming stats to the public or artists themselves.

In recent weeks, it’s been reported that both Spotify and Samsung have been in talks to buy Tidal from Jay-Z.
