Jay-Z Turns 50 With a Return to Spotify

That’s because the prolific rapper’s music catalog has been returned to that streaming service after a two-year absence.

Spotify tweeted about it on Wednesday.

“Happy birthday, Hov Welcome back to Spotify,” the Twitter post read, with a link to his music.

Jay-Z is the owner of Spotify’s competitor Tidal music streaming service, and there has been no official announcement as to why his music is back on Spotify.

But to quote one of his verses on his wife Beyoncé’s hit “Déjà Vu,” “Now be everywhere, the nerve of rap.”
