Jay-Z Unleashed His Discography to Spotify, Which Makes Us Wonder: Is Tidal Shutting Down?


In case you haven't heard, Jay-Z is celebrating his 50th birthday on Dec. 4, 2019. Wild, right? And while most people might buy themselves a pair of new shoes or a cake to celebrate, the "99 Problems" rapper decided to release his entire hip-hop discography to Spotify. It's basically a birthday gift for everyone.

But upon releasing all of his music to Spotify, fans can't help but speculate his motives: Jay has his own paid music streaming service called Tidal, and that's why none of his music was available on Spotify until this day. So, what's going on? Is Tidal shutting down? Distractify reached out to Tidal for more information, but the streaming service did not respond in time of publication. So, this is what we know.
