Read the original story below.
Kanye West’s The Life of Pablo has been taken off of Tidal, the streaming service that had the initial exclusive to the album following its February release. The deal reportedly doubled Tidal’s subscriptions; however, it was later released on Apple Music and Spotify, despite West’s claims that would only be available on Tidal. Fans have since filed a lawsuit against West and the streaming service for "tricking" them into purchasing a subscription. Initially, Kanye said that his music would never be made available on Apple Music, but later changed his mind when the project was released in full on every streaming service. Interestingly enough, this comes on the same day that Kanye announced his "Saint Pablo" tour, which includes a Tidal pre-order.
A rep close to Kanye explained that the issue was probably technical, though the streaming service has yet to make any announcement about the album. A rep for Tidal did not immediately respond to Complex's request for comment.
The Life of Pablo remains on Apple Music and Spotify. His latest single "Champions" from Cruel Winter is still available on Tidal. We'll continue to update this story as more details are made available.
