Jay Z’s extensive catalog of music has been removed from Apple Music and Spotify. Spotify has said the removal of most of the music by Jay Z was done “at the request of the artist.”
The two leading streaming services no longer have any of Jay Z’s solo work, with only features and his projects with R. Kelly and Linkin Park remaining on the services. Also, this is the third time Jay Z’s content has been pulled from the streaming services — after Tidal launched Jay Z removed his début album, Reasonable Doubt, from all streaming services except for Tidal. Last year, Jay Z’s Blueprint series was removed from streaming services as well.
This move is in an attempt for Hov as an artist, to be the one controlling his music. At this point, if you want to hear Jay Z’s solo work, it’s probably time to sign up for Tidal.
