There is a brewing beef between Rihanna and her mentor and ex-boss, Jay Z.

For years, Jay Z has convinced other artists to join Tidal, over the other streaming platforms and it appears to have worked.

But Rihanna may be ready to make a change.

This morning Rihanna unfollowed Tidal on Instagram and followed Spotify. This is a possible sign that Rihanna may be preparing to break with Jay Z's streaming platform - and move to Spotify.

As fans started freaking out over the move, Spotify decided to shake things up, posting a photo of the singer alongside a caption that read, “Hi [Rihanna].” It also posted a photo of her song, “Where Have You Been,” asking a question that has been on fans’ minds for the past three years.

Here are the receipts:


Rihanna is one of the original artists who are "owners" of the Tidal platform. Since its launch, Rihanna has created a number of exclusives with Tidal.

But Rihanna has a new project coming up - and she is likely signaling a change in her preferred streaming service.

Spotify has been throwing around BIG money to artists who are willing to sign exclusive deals with them. And it appears that Rihanna is ready to turn on Jay Z's company - for CASH.

If you’re a Rihanna fan, you know there’s a bit of a music drought going on at the moment.

It’s been more than three years since Rihanna released new music and nearly a year since the Barbados-born singer promised that a follow-up to 2016’s Anti was on its way. As you can imagine, fans are growing increasingly impatient for new tunes — but don’t lose faith, RiRi fans.
