Read what Jay Z had to say.

Jay Z has posted a series of tweets defending his new business venture, the music streaming service TIDAL. 

Since launching the new service during a press conference that saw him joined by founding members Rihanna, Beyoncé, Nicki Minaj and Kanye West, to name but a few, TIDAL has received criticism for being made with artists in mind, rather than fans. 

The rapper has posted a series of tweets using the hashtag #TidalTweets, all expressing that "Tidal is doing just fine" and it is "here for the long haul." Read what Hov had to say below.

Since its launch TIDAL has featured exclusive content from several of its founding members. Beyoncé dropped a new song called 'Die With You' and video on the subscription service, while Rihanna revealed her official video for 'American Oxygen' on it before uploading it to her VEVO page a week later. 

There have since been reports that Jay Z and Beyoncé will be dropping a collaborative album on TIDAL soon.
