Jay Z is selling one-third of his Tidal streaming service to Sprint for $200 million, according to a report released earlier today by Billboard.

As part of the deal, Tidal will become available to Sprint's 45 million customers;  Sprint's CEO Marcelo Claure will join Tidal's board of directors. Jay Z and the artist who invested will retain stakes in the company; the agreement also calls for a $75 million fund dedicated to musicians' exclusive releases.
