Jay Z pulled his classic debut album Reasonable Doubt from Spotify last April, just a week after he launched Tidal. And apparently, as Pitchfork points out, he somehow managed to remove all three of his Blueprint albums a few months ago without anyone noticing. As of now, they’re not available on Apple Music, iTunes, Amazon’s digital music store, Rhapsody, or Google Play, but they are, of course, still on Tidal.
“Jay Z’s Blueprint albums have not been available on any streaming service except Tidal for a few months now,” a Spotify spokesperson told Pitchfork in a statement. “We hope he brings them back soon so that his millions of fans on Spotify can enjoy them again.”
The rest of Jay’s discography is still widely available, at least for now, and some of the songs from the missing albums are available on non-Tidal services through compilations.
