With the coronavirus pandemic forcing artists across the board to improvise, TIDAL’s pivot to virtual concerts has allowed fans to still enjoy rappers’ performances in a safe environment until in-person concerts return hopefully by 2022.

Oculus is a brand of Facebook and the division produces virtual reality headsets, including the Oculus Rift and Oculus Quest lines.
