Probably not Tidal exclusive. More likely Tidal just fucked up and uploaded the songs in a semi-public format, as streaming services are wont to do. (Remember when Kendrick's untitled unmastered. appeared early on Spotify?)

"Green Light" didn't drop until 2 p.m. Thursday, which is ideally when this column would be ready to go online! And also Ed Sheeran is the biggest male pop star in the world, so I basically have to address him.
