How To Listen To Jay Z On Spotify

Rather than allow his music to be streamed on established platforms like Spotify and Deezer, he instead chose to start his own platform.

In honor of the rapper's 50th birthday (Dec. 4), the billionaire MC has chose to restore his albums back to Spotify's library.

When Tidal came, the wave took with it all of Jay-Z's back catalogue, the exclusivity that aimed to bring customers to the platform rather than see them turn to Spotify.

The announcement of Jay Z's return to Spotify was made on the rapper's 50th birthday and was met with huge excitement from rap fans on social media. With Spotify, the only album that listeners could previously check out was his 2014 album with Linkin Park titled "Collision Course".

That's because the prolific rapper's music catalog has been returned to that streaming service after a two-year absence.

Although the 22-time Grammy winner's catalog was promptly restored to Apple Music - it remained banned on Spotify "at the request of the artist".

Fans can now stream 4:44 on Spotify for the first time, along with classics like The Blueprint, American Gangster and Watch The Throne. It's a mystery as to how this was all arranged to make this happen.
