Zena Burns, Senior Vice President of Label and Artist Relations, and Jennifer Justice, of Business Development and Affairs, allegedly left the company and accepted new roles, according to Hits Daily Double.

Justice, who joined Jay Z's Roc Nation record company in 2010, also served as the rapper's personal lawyer. It's also rumored that Chief Marketing Officer Jeff Geisler--who also worked at Roc Nation--has left to take a similar role at Saatchi & Saatchi.

If true, the latest departures would make four major executives to jump ship from Jay Z's latest business venture, which was acquired earlier this year. In June, Tidal lost its second CEO is just three months

Reports of Tidal's revolving door of employees comes as whispers around the rumor mill suggests Jay Z is planning on selling his ownership of Tidal after reports of company failures dominate headlines.

Rumor has it Tidal is struggling to circumvent the dominance of already established music streaming companies like Spotify.
