Rumors have been swirling that Tidal is a flop! And now, Jay Z is dispelling those rumors with #TidalFacts. Find out what he said about his budding music streaming service and get the deets on Raven Symone possibly joining “The View” inside….

Less than a month after launching his new music streaming service, Jay Z is clapping back at rumors that TIDAL is a flop AND he’s responding to the haters who don’t want to see him (and his celeb friends) succeed.

Rumors have been circulating that TIDAL, the music streaming company Jay Z acquired for $56 million, is a failing company. But, Hov wants you to know that’s not true. On the heels of TIDAL’s CEO being removed and the firing of at least 25 employees, the Hip Hop entrepreneur, in so many words, says this is simply a changing of the guards so to speak.

Jay hopped on Twitter yesterday to drop some #TidalFacts and numbers, because you know, men lie, women lie, but numbers don’t lie. He says TIDAL is here to stay and since the company is brand new, it will take time before it becomes a huge player in the game.

Although TIDAL has only been in business a month, Hov says they have over 770,000 subscribers and that we can’t believe everything we read because there are big companies that spend millions on smear campaigns. We assume he means other companies are paying big bucks to try and bring him (and his celeb friends) down. Hmph.

Peep his tweets (read from the bottom up):

Well there you have it.

On the daytime tv circuit….

We’ve watched Raven Symone guest host on “The View” multiple times since Rosie O’Donnell left the show. And now rumors have sparked that ABC is allegedly gunning to book Raven as a permanent co-host on the daytime talk show.

Sources tell PageSix, the network is desperately trying to ink a deal with the guest starring “Empire” actress. The source said, “She was interesting and provocative. Raven would be great as a regular host.” So, ABC wants to seal the deal before their upfront presentation in New York on May 12th. Guess we will have to wait and see if it happens….

Do you think Raven joining Whoopi Goldberg, Rosie Perez and Nicolle Wallace is a good look?
