Jay Z isn’t playing games when it comes to the music streaming wars. The part-owner of Tidal has removed all of his Blueprint albums from Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon, iTunes and Google Play.
“Jay Z’s Blueprint albums have not been available on any streaming service except Tidal for a few months now,” a Spotify rep tells Pitchfork. “We hope he brings them back soon so that his millions of fans on Spotify can enjoy them again.”
We doubt it, bruh. Hov also oversaw the release of Kanye West’s album The Life of Pablo exclusively on Tidal, as well as Rihanna’s initial release of Anti and Beyonce’s “Formation” single release. Whether Jigga’s series of chess moves pay off remains to be seen, but the Blueprint effect is having an impact, even if only limited.
Spotify doesn’t have Reasonable Doubt or any of the the three Blueprint albums. almost worth moving to Tidal just for those…
