Jay Z tweeted about Tidal, and everyone took the piss

THE TIDAL SHADEWAGON just keeps on trucking, doesn’t it.

Just weeks after the mortifying launch of Jay Z and Friends’ music streaming service, it was gleefully reported that Tidal was in trouble, and that nobody is downloading it.

Yesterday Jay Z used his Twitter account to tweet a number of #TidalFacts, explaining that Tidal is the target of a smear campaign, and that it’s actually grand…

*briefly daydreams about being Jay Z’s cousin*

Of course, it didn’t take long for #TidalFacts to be highjacked.

And there’s even a Tidal Facts parody Twitter account.

Poor Tidal.

(Fast forward 2 years and we’re all using Tidal, saying ‘Spotify WHO?’)
