Over the weekend TIDAL's head of marketing claimed Rihanna's new album Anti was accidentally leaked due to a TIDAL systems error [click here if you missed that].
TIDAL now blames the leak Universal Music Group...
Tidal execs tell Spin,
"In regards to TIDAL’s “systems error,” Kim is “referring to a system error caused by Universal Music Group. The error was not something TIDAL caused.”
"In regards to Kim’s comment that Billboard and Nielsen are not counting ANTI’s sales on TIDAL toward their totals, TIDAL has clarified with the following statement: “Billboard and Nielsen are counting ANTI’s sales on TIDAL towards their totals, [but] they aren’t counting the Samsung/Rihanna download code gift to fans. The 400k+ sales ofANTI via TIDAL will be counted by Billboard.”
