There he goes again: being the biggest boss of them all making major moves.
Jay Z is making a big statement when it comes to his huge music catalog. According to Billboard, the hip-hop mogul “requested” that his music be pulled off streaming sites Spotify and Apple Music.
The only music that remains are two collaborative albums with R Kelly, Unfinished Business (2004) and Best of Both Worlds (2002), and five singles, all collaborations, “N—-s in Paris” with Kanye West, “Numb/Encore” with Linkin Park, “All the Way Up” with Fat Joe and Remy Ma ft. French Montana, “Clique” with Big Sean with and Kanye and “Dirt Off Your Shoulders” with Notorious B.I.G.
As for why his catalog was moved remains a mystery, but it does come on the heels as Jay’s streaming service, TIDAL, continues to struggle in comparison to the larger providers.
