Kanye West's new album The Life of Pablo remains exclusive to Tidal, but at least a little bit of it has spread onto competing services. A new version of "Famous" — that's the Rihanna-featuring track with the infamous line about Taylor Swift — is now available on Spotify, Apple Music, and Google Play Music as well as Tidal. It swaps the original line "she be Puerto Rican day parade-wavin'" with "she in school to be a real estate agent," notes Pitchfork.

West has described The Life of Pablo as a "living breathing changing creative expression" in reference to all its post-release edits. Whether that attitude will extend to its business model — West also said the album would "never never never be on Apple" — remains to be seen.

You can listen to "Famous" here on Apple Music, here on Google Play Music, or stream it on Spotify below.

Update, 2.30AM ET: Added Google Play Music link.
