Kanye West's latest album, The Life of Pablo, has arrived on Spotify, Google Play Music, and Apple Music. It was reported yesterday that West's still-changing album would soon appear on the services, despite the self-proclaimed greatest artist ever saying it would remain a Tidal exclusive forever, and would "never never never be on Apple." He might be half true to his word, however — at present, The Life of Pablo has yet to turn up on iTunes.
The arrival of the whole album on competing services comes less than a week after one song from The Life of Pablo — "Famous," featuring Rihanna — appeared on Spotify, Apple Music, and Google Play Music. Users of these services can expect their listening experience to vary over time, as Tidal users have discovered, with Kanye promising to tweak and update his latest album as "a living breathing changing creative expression."
My album will never never never be on Apple. And it will never be for sale... You can only get it on Tidal.— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) February 15, 2016
