Seriously popular popstar, Rihanna’s former aide has blasted Jay Z’s streaming network Tidal saying: “It’s an embarrassment.”

Record producer Jonathan Hay, who worked with RiRi in 2005, says that Rihanna was “upset” when her latest album Anti sold just 460 copies in the first week after it was given away for free by Tidal.

Jonathan, 42, explains:

“Tidal is lame. It’s embarrassing for Jay Z. And now to see Kanye West do the Tidal album and his record doesn’t chart, and then Rihanna’s first week, it was a disaster.For Jay Z to make his artists do this is so bad because this is affecting their legacy.It’s really crazy and I know for a fact Rihanna is upset about the Tidal thing and you can see it when you go to her Twitter.

He continued:

“She is a Tidal owner, but on her Twitter to pick up her album, she uses a Google plus app not Tidal. That’s her shooting back because Jay Z is just making a mistake. “The rollout was sloppy, the rollout was bad, to go on Tidal exclusively and eliminate Spotify and Apple is absolutely mad.
“Thirty years from now, people will just see her first week was a flop. Kanye has now been called a flop. And it’s all because of this Tidal s***.”

In 2005, Jonathan helped publicize Rihanna’s debut album Pon de Replay and spread the false rumour that she was dating Jay Z when he was with Beyonce.

Jonathan adds:

“Just imagine if Adele came out with a Tidal exclusive, it would be weird, it just needs to go away because Jay Z is affecting his artists’ brands. I fear Rihanna is losing and she is going to start going down.”
