Just a few weeks back, Jay-Z announced that his ‘4:44' album would launch exclusively on Tidal for existing subscribers along with Sprint customers through a partnership with Tidal and the mobile carrier. The title launched on June 30th and went platinum in just a week despite disgruntled fans who were unable to listen at launch due to an odd restriction which kept new Tidal customers from accessing the album had they signed up for a new Tidal account after the album launch.
Now that we are a full week after the exclusive launch, Jay-Z has now added the album to more online streaming services and audio providers including iTunes/Apple Music, Google Play Music, and Amazon Music. For now, Spotify is still missing the album yet Jay-Z made a decision to remove the majority of his catalog from the service (Tidal's biggest competitor) quite a while ago.
