Tidal Owner Jay-Z Pulls Every Album from Spotify, Apple Music

Billboard reached out to Spotify and Jay Z and only heard back at press time from Spotify, which confirmed that "some of his catalog has been removed at the request of the artist".

Spotify and another significant streaming service, Apple no longer have any of Jay Z's solo recordings, with just components and his recordings with R. Kelly and Linkin Park staying on the services. Jay-Z's solo work is also nearly entirely absent from Amazon Music's streaming catalog, with just four tracks from mixtapes offered. We've reached out to Roc Nation and Apple Music for comment. The company has had to adapt its digital offerings over the past few years by releasing its own music streaming service to compete with the likes of Spotify, Pandora, and others.

One difference in the services that may have led Jay Z to remove the titles from Spotify and not Apple is Spotify's ad-based freemium tier which pays artists less in royalties than the subscription tier.

Although there is still no proof that the president was subject to a wiretap or any sort of direct surveillance. In an interview with NBC's Andrea Mitchell, Rice rebuked the accusations in both stories.

Jay Z fans may find their options a bit slim when it comes to streaming his music this weekend.

Back in January, Tidal was in the news after Sprint chose to acquire a 33% stake, which would allow the company to offer its customers exclusive content and other collaborations with the music streaming service.
