Prince is removing his music from all streaming services — except Jay-Z’s TIDAL. The singer and songwriter has released no official statement explaining his decision, which includes services like Spotify and the just-released Apple Music. A message from Prince’s Spotify page says the artist asked to have his catalog removed, while the service hopes to bring his music back “as soon as possible.” Prince’s TIDAL page, however, still shows his full catalog of music.
This isn’t the first time that Prince decides to shy away from social media. Last November, he removed all his content from YouTube and deleted both his Facebook and Twitter accounts. He’s since then returned to all social media.
