Hip Hop rapper Kanye West rules out Apple Music and iTunes release for new album
Rapper Kanye West says that his latest album, titled “The Life of Pablo,” won’t be coming to Apple Music or iTunes. Currently, the album is only available to stream through the Jay Z-backed Tidal, where Yeezy plans to keep it:
My album will never never never be on Apple. And it will never be for sale… You can only get it on Tidal.

West’s abrupt decision comes after a turbulent release for the album, which was initially only supposed to be a Tidal exclusive for a week. Yeezy also originally planned to sell the album through his website, but has apparently changed his stance on that decision as well.
