Rihanna is said to have be deeply unhappy with her label boss Jay-Z.
The record producer Jonathon Hay worked as the star’s publicist after she was signed to the Def Jam-led label Jay-Z.
Alas, over a decade after their split, Hay now says that he has learned that Rihanna is upset with the way in which Jay’s Tidal streaming service and the exclusives she has given it has affected her album ‘ANTI.’
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. ‘ANTI’s rollout was sloppy, the rollout was bad, to go on Tidal exclusively and eliminate Spotify and Apple is absolutely mad.
Rihanna is yet to respond.
Unfortunately, Hay’s claim may hold some weight.
For Rihanna’s label, the Universal Music Group, had something similar to say about her relationship with the streaming service.
