UPDATED 1/27, 10:42 a.m. ET: Migos’ Culture album is once again available on Apple Music and other streaming services, including Tidal and Amazon Music. At the time of this writing, however, it remained absent from the trio’s Spotify catalog.
Meanwhile, Quavo has teased the imminent release of new (and presumably solo) music, with his IG post signaling the impending arrival notably being shared on the day of Culture’s fifth anniversary.
See original story below.
Migos’ 2017 album Culture has disappeared from streaming services.
Fans were quick to mourn the album’s apparent removal from Spotify, Apple Music, and elsewhere while also speculating that the timing of the album’s streaming pull could offer some solace. After all, Jan. 27 will mark the album’s fifth anniversary.
The critically and commercially successful album, of course, was supported by the extended ubiquity of the single “Bad and Boujee” featuring Lil Uzi Vert. “T-Shirt” and the Gucci Mane-assisted “Slippery” were also singles from the album, which kicked off a trilogy that came to a close last June. Culture II and Culture III, respectively, remained streamable at the time of this writing, with Migos celebrating the fourth anniversary of Culture II earlier today.
Complex has reached out to reps for Migos, Spotify, and Apple Music for comment on Culture’s plans-disrupting disappearing act.
In December, with Culture III roughly six months in the rearview, Migos linked with Jim Jones for “We Set the Trends.” More recently, Offset has been teasing new music on social media, including via the fairly lengthy Instagram-shared clip below.
