After Two Years, JAY-Z’s Entire Musical Catalogue Is Back on Spotify

After Two Years, JAY-Z’s Entire Musical Catalogue Is Back on Spotify

Although today is December 4, or Jay-Z's 50th birthday, he's giving fans a present instead.

Becoming rap's first billionaire, Jay Z has been an achievement in both music and business, before launching the streaming service TIDAL.

Longtime Spotify users may remember a time in the not-so-distant past when Carter's music was available on the music streaming service. Although they haven't reported subscriber numbers since 2016 when they had 3 million listeners, by comparison Spotify reported 113 million subscribers back in October.

Jay-Z has over 8.4 million monthly listeners per his Spotify page, which will gain a considerable boost in the short term.

When music streaming started picking up steam in the middle of the decade, Jay-Z didn't want to be left behind. With Spotify, the only album that listeners could previously check out was his 2014 album with Linkin Park titled "Collision Course".

The "99 Problems" singer yanked his catalog from most major streaming platforms two years ago so that his music could exclusively be accessed on his own service, Tidal. It's a mystery as to how this was all arranged to make this happen.

Jay-Z performs onstage during the Meadows Music And Arts Festival on September 15, 2017 in New York City.
