Jay Z Albums Disappear From Spotify, Apple Music...
Jay's albums have (once again) disappeared from Spotify and Apple Music, as the Verge points out.
The only releases from the rapper’s career still on Spotify are features and some select singles. Watch the Throne is notably counted among the albums that have been pulled from streaming services. Of course, Jay’s full discography can still be found on Tidal, and can still be streamed on Amazon Music Unlimited and purchased on iTunes as off press time. Apple Music still has Kingdom Come and The Black Album.
In March of last year, Jay Z took his Blueprint album series and Reasonable Doubt off of Spotify and Apple Music. The albums came back to the streaming platforms later that year in October. Representatives for Apple Music reached by Pitchfork declined to comment, while a rep for Spotify stated that “some of Jay Z’s catalog has been removed at the request of the artist.” Pitchfork has contacted representatives for Jay Z for comment.
