This has been a really, really good week for - some - Nicki Minaj fans. Not only have we had the mind-blowing video for Beyoncé team-up "Feeling Myself", but a visual for dance anthem "The Night Is Still Young" dropped on Friday too - both on TIDAL, of course.
Between the B Sides concert and that Nicki/Beyoncé video. Tidal subscribers been feeling like royalty all weekend.— Charlamagne Tha God (@cthagod) May 18, 2015
"Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj released a new video..." Me: *screams* "...exclusively on TIDAL!" Me: No.— Alex Goldschmidt (@alexandergold) May 18, 2015
So as you can imagine, Barbz that can't fork out the monthly subscription fee are feeling a little left out.
If Nicki "knows what we can afford" why is she releasing a music video she knows we all wanna see on an app that costs $20 a month to use— katrina (@dinahsfather) May 18, 2015
And while the criticism is pretty valid, Nicki stans are finding that their comments are... less than appreciated.

"The woulda’s and coulda’s all day are going bye bye," Nicki declared in a (since deleted) Tweet, before going on a spree that would result in a lot of anti-TIDAL fans suddenly seeing a lot less Nicki in their timeline.
because i told her i can't afford tidal and i asked her to put the videos on vevo.— ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ (@MinajGoesHard) May 22, 2015

What do you think: is Nicki right to keep the negativity out, or should she be more considerate of the fans without TIDAL? Let us know your thoughts below.
