Spotify didn't say if Jay Z's decision was based on friction between Tidal and other streaming music services.

The hip hop star has had his catalog of solo albums pulled from both the Apple Music and Spotify services, seemingly in favor of Tidal, the music service he co-owns.

In a statement to The Verge, a rep for Spotify said that the removal of some of Jay Z's catalog was done "at the request of the artist".

So where can I stream Jay Z? We've reached out to Roc Nation and Apple Music for comment.

Most of the original albums have been removed, however, content where he is a featured artist or collaborator, and maybe not the only owner of the content, is still available for streaming. Many Tidal exclusives have been short-lived, though, and may not have converted many paying customers.

Spotify reported that Jay-Z had majority of his inventory expelled from their platform. Last year, his 2001 album "The Blueprint" was also removed from all streaming services other than Tidal.

Back in January, Tidal was in the news after Sprint chose to acquire a 33% stake, which would allow the company to offer its customers exclusive content and other collaborations with the music streaming service.

Jay Z fans may find their options a bit slim when it comes to streaming his music this weekend.
