Just like Michael Jackson, Prince had issues with the music industry as well. He was in a fight for creative freedom that at one time had his name changed to a symbol and was referred to “The Artist formally known as Prince.” To help that Prince pulled all his music from Spotify and moved it to Tidal.


“My thing is this. The catalog has to be protected. And some of our fans were actually disingenuous. Taking the time to get their playlists together and yeah, it’s gone. Now you got to actually go subscribe to get the music that you lost on Spotify. Spotify wasn’t paying, so you gotta shut it down.” ~Prince said

So if you want to hear Prince and of course you do. There is only one place you can do it. It’s not Spotify and or over at Apple Music. Jay Z’s Tidal is the only place where you can legally stream the legends work. All the top albums from Prince’s extensive catalog can only be heard there. One of the reasons Prince did the jump is because Tidal doesn’t have a free subscription tier. You have to pay from jump to hear music. It does however offer a free 30-day trial
