In response, Apple Music has offered some exclusives of its own, including from R&B singer Frank Ocean.

Spotify reported that Jay-Z had majority of his inventory expelled from their platform. Jay Z is a co-owner of music streaming service Tidal, along with a dozen or so other high profile artists.

There hasn't been an official announcement from the artist as to why his catalog was pulled, but Spotify did clarify that it was done so at the artist's request. Last year, Jay Z's Blueprint series was removed from streaming services as well.

Rapper Jay Z, who co-owns streaming music service Tidal, has apparently removed all his solo albums from Apple Music and also took down some of his music from Spotify.

Jaws Drop When Honey Boo Boo's Mom Reveals Her Incredible Weight Loss
After starting at 460 pounds, the Georgia mother slimmed down into the middle 100s, she told Entertainment Tonight Online Tuesday. As she tells it, nearly 300 pounds less than her 460-pound starting weight. "I will do whatever it takes", Shannon said .

So where can I stream Jay Z? Assuming Kanye West is a reliable source, it's likely that's exactly why his music isn't available for streaming on the two services.

It isn't clear if this latest move is specifically meant to drive up Tidal subscriptions.

The only Jay-Z music left on Spotify and Apple Music are his collaborations with Linkin Park and R. Kelly. In January, Sprint purchased a 33% stake in a deal that reportedly valued the company at $600 million, compared to its 2015 purchase price of $56 million.
