Jay-Z‘s Blueprint trilogy returned to Apple Music on Wednesday, May 22. The rapper had pulled the three albums from streaming services in favor of his company Tidal in 2016.
Tidal streaming service was relaunched in 2015 after the streaming service’s parent Aspiro was acquired by Jay-Z’s Project Panther Bidco Ltd. One year later, Jay Z removed the Blueprint album trilogy from competing platforms like Spotify, Google Play, Rhapsody, Amazon, and Apple Music.
Jay-Z’s 1996 debut album, Reasonable Doubt, remains the only album from the singer’s discography unavailable on Apple Music. It was pulled in 2015.
In related news, Billboard reports Roc Nation, the entertainment company owned by Jay Z, has fired a number of senior-level executives, including Senior Vice President of Promotion Azim Rashid, Senior Vice President of A&R Orlando McGhee, Executive Vice President of Marketing Gita Williams, and Senior Director of Publicity Fairley McCaskill.
The series of terminations follows label president Benny Pough‘s departure in March.
