  1. Jay-Z’s Tidal Not Making a Big Splash

But it has since hit the doldrums, dipping far below competitors. Critics warned it was adrift when Tidal ousted its CEO, and Kanye’s assertion that it wasn’t “the Illuminati” didn’t help. But supporters hope the young company will soon find its sea legs.
