Rihanna Passively Aggressely Shading Jay Z?


Rihanna hasn't said a word about the disastrous roll-out of her latest album ANTI [click here if you missed that], but has she passively aggressively sent a big F-U to Jay Z and Tidal..?

Industry insider Johann Hay tells The Mirror
“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."
“She is a Tidal owner, but on her Twitter to pick up her album, she uses the [iTunes] 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***.”

The entire song "Needed Me" on the ANTI album is about Jay Z. Rihanna can't do anything about it because like Kanye, she OWES Jay. And this Johann dude is shady lol

When are artist going to realize that you must pay the piper? You are owned by the record label. Find a way to get out or ride it out like Prince did.

i can believe it. and then on top of it he lets his wife come out with with her typical over promotional gimmicks right after rhi recovers from the bad rollout with work doing well on the charts giving her another number one to the point she has actually made history. that should've been capitalized on. instead her comes by with the gimmicks. i rhi rhi said she is not competing with bey but bey sure is competing with her. so strange since they on the same type in theory.

The thing about rhianna while she might not be a great singer/dancer, what is consistently said about her is that she has an ear for songs/music production. la reid also just came out and said this about her. so her strength seems to be behind the scenes. I'm sure it is upsetting to her for all of this go so badly. she probably had a vision and here come jay and bey to mess it up. jay because he doesn't know what the hell he is doing. bey because she secretly envies rhianna.

What's "passively agressly?"

I'm a fan of Rihanna for sure. However, she shouldn't suddenly turn on the person who put her on. Especially when he is married and she had no problems sleeping with him for years in order to benefit and get ahead.

She didn't turn on him, she signed to Roc Nation to appease Jay. Rihanna could have gone to any other label and got 5 star treatment but instead she went to Flop Nation. Loyalty.

Blah, blah, blah....as it says, she is part owner. Take responsibility for your chitty album and how it came out. Now she want to blame the other co-owners for her flop. I am not mad at Rihanna or Tidal, I would like for both to succeed. BUT, this album was her issue too since she owns part of the company. To give the apple app some love is absolutely stupid! How I'm gonna own Micky D's and tall you to please go buy a whopper from Burger King? Dummy...

Most of Rihanna's albums never chart 1st week at #1 anyway. This is nothing new. She's is a single's artist. Jay Z is an album artist. Just used them as an example since they're both apart of the story. They're different types of artist but each respective methods work well for them. I always love the hits of Ri's albums but never love the WHOLE album so it makes sense. Contrarily, I always love Jay's full body of work.


So anyway, my point is that Rihanna's album did as expected anyway. Especially, after here never ending rollout of the ish. Heck, I'm even sick of waiting on Drake's "Views..." because he's been promoting that ish WAY too long! Lol

@4:57 @5:39 The rollout of ANTI was SHITTY, period. No other major label would've fucked up up that bad, and that is on JAY, not Rihanna.

First of all...At this point in the game, anyone entrusting their livelihood to Jay deserves whatever comes their way. #SorryRihanna.
Jay is a good manager for Rhi & Bey (I'm sure he handles more concerning Bey's business than she'd ever like to admit), he's a great rapper (even though he's a thief), and he and Dame (mostly Dame) made the Roc business a force to be reckoned with. These are the only things I can think of that brought real success to him. Not many things or other business ventures that Jay has touched has turned to gold. Other than that he's not been a very good businessman, IMHO.
What has also brought success to him and has confused the hell out of some ppl, is he's a great puppet/representative for the elites. They put him up front and center, giving the image that he's a real businessman, when he's receiving peanuts and bragging rights of how he's rubbing shoulders and doing business with the big dawgs.
However, what I do admire is that Jay tries to keep his hands in every pot, which means he gets money (large or small amount) from different entities. It's like, whatever he throws at the wall, he's hoping that shit sticks.

(Cont.) If Jay's gonna keep doing "business" with the big dawgs, by making them richer and richer, then Jay should've been a billionaire a long time ago. His money should be much closer to what the big dawgs have in their pockets. I know... I know...It's still much more than I have but hey, I'm not the one working with the big dawgs. LOOL! I wish that brother much success, no matter how he got to where he is today. One day I'd like to see one of those big dawgs switching places with Jay. IJS.

Continuous talk of Jay and Rhi having a long standing affair (where are the cell phone pics) is pathetic in terms of Beyonce (and her mother, who encourages this union). Jeez, Beyonce had some talent and no one remembers it. Sad

Beyonce and Jay Z are more alike than not! Beyonce hides behind that Houston facade but in reality the Knowles were (are) racket Texans and Jay is a street hustle. Kudos to them for making money and creating that beautiful child. Nothing more, nothing less.

Rihanna Jay Z and Beyonce are weak. Destroy them both and you can rule the galaxy.

Rihanna isn't shading the Carters no more then Beyonce is shading Her, and trashing her everything behind the scenes. She loved Rita Ora, now look at the mess Rita has caused them. Rihanna is good, and could care less about how the Carters are trying to own the Universe. No matter what people say Rihanna is making History in Music right on. And less see if Jayz and Tidal them screw up Beyonce , and Alicia Music when it drops, are leak it before it hit the airways.Even after all that Beyonce has done under the radar to shade her Rihanna still is doing her thing.

Beyonce is so pressed over her making music history ahead of her, and for all to see, that behind the scenes she is sparing no coast to try to out smart RIHANNA, and out do her ,and all the entertainers who is taking the spotlight off her.

What kind of music history has Beyonce made this last few yearthat is huge and strictly for her music and breaking music history records. After all it's Rihanna name that is seen among the Legendary music Figures.

Beyonce wishes she was in Rihanna leagues musically . I bet it Beyonce trying to sabotage Rih on the low. Beyonce been jealous of Rihanna and a quick google search will tell you way. Rihanna has sold WAAAAAAY more album, has more number 1's and more likable period. In all honesty, Rihanna is shitting on Beyonce left and right and I know that burns the so called "Queen" up.

The fact Rihanna's talentless ass went this far, she better thank her lucky stars.

Umm 4:25 I think they meant passive aggressively.

The fools that are shading Rihanna are idiots, Rihanna is making it happen right now, The Anti album is pretty good and she's making major moves. She don't need Jay or Tidal. She's too loyal to him anyways. People quick to clown Rihanna about her singing, but she has a unique sound and it works because every week she's making history.

How dare he try to compete against Apple and Spotify???! lol! Thats a lame argument. Not saying it is a successful business...but if you had artists...why wouldn't you try to market them your way. I long as you are successful people will ride with you....but don't get too successful...oh AND also don't fail. He took a chance...it didn't work out....Rhianna didn't gain her success by herself...yes she put I'n work.... This person sounds like a certified hater. People wasn't rolling with tidal as SOON as it came out anyway.
