Kanye West brings The Life of Pablo to Google Play Music All Access and Spotify

Alright folks, this isn't an April Fools' Day prank: Kanye West has brought his latest album, The Life of Pablo, to the major music streaming services, including Google Play Music All Access and Spotify. The album was initially released as an exclusive to the Tidal streaming service, and West had previously stated that it would remain that way.

The Life of Pablo is West's seventh studio album, and features several guest vocalists, including Rihanna, Chance the Rapper, Frank Ocean, and The Weeknd. Interestingly, while the track listing for the album remains the same, a number of people are reporting that the tracks themselves have been updated and tweaked since their initial release on Tidal.

If you like to purchase your music, unfortunately you can buy The Life of Pablo from Google Play, though it is available for $20 directly from Kanye West's website.

  • Kanye sucks, his music sucks. He needs to put down the microphone and auto tune and get some desperately needed mental help.

  • I completely agree. I hate that **** boy with a passion. Posted via the Android Central App
  • The hate is strong...it's a great album. I'm sure you don't know him personally, so what's to hate? Posted via the Android Central App
  • He jelly bcoz Kim his waifu Posted via the Android Central App
  • Fair Posted via the Android Central App
  • "That's just the Waaaave!"
  • Its Google Play Music Unlimited, All Access branding is gone. I know, its Google's fault, but still.
  • That clown is the worst "artist" alive. Go die Mr. West. Posted via the Android Central App
  • And to think his 1st like 4 albums were influential, original and they banged. After that though, straight downhill Posted via the Android Central App
  • All that **** was trash, weak beats and worse lyrics. I hope God takes him and gives us back Tupac. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Does anyone actually care about Kanye West anymore? I'm mean, his music is awful, he's extremely disrespectful to everyone. Even more so to women. He's an overall ****** person. Posted via the Android Central app on my Nexus 5X with Project Fi
  • Kanye still makes music?
  • He still has a lot of juice left... weird, most other rappers that are from his Era are washed up hahah. But you certainly see a decline in lyrics, for sure. Posted via the Android Central App
  • lol couldn't sell on tidal. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Check the numbers. Kanye is a trendy ass artist. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Blasphemy Posted via the Android Central App
  • What? Hahaha. I remember reading an article in which his album got stream A LOT on tidal... but I sense you're being sarcastic :) Posted via the Android Central App
  • I'm not sure why this is news. Is his album the first to be streamed by Google play and Spotify? Posted via the Android Central App
  • Did you even read the article? S7 edge/AC app
  • Clearly he did not lol Posted via the Android Central App
  • You are both dorks. I did. It was a sarcastic shot at Kanye West. He's trying to be Taylor Swift in controlling where his music goes. I was a fan until he got a big head about it and it reflected in his rap. Posted via the Android Central App
  • $20 for a digital download??
  • Wish he would go back to making regular albums and leave this experimental **** alone. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Please don't pollute Android Central news with this garbage. I like to think this is a respectable site with a higher intelligence level than to even broadcast this. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I think you meant "can't" download. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I can't believe the amount of hate I'm reading. Nobody knows this man personally but everyone dislikes him. You all sound butt hurt....grow a pair...."he's disrespectful"....seriously lol Posted via the Android Central App
  • Do you read the news?
  • Of course I do...he's said and done some questionable ish but who hasn't? Are we going to deny his musical genius? It's two sides to every story; he almost died in a car accident and lost his mother unexpectedly so I'm sure he may not be in the best place. We all have some sort of mental health issue. At least he has the nads to speak his mind. Either way, he's a great artist who has grown in his craft. Posted via the Android Central App
  • It takes balls to speak gibberish? I guess so. It certainly takes brains to be self aware enough not to open your mouth and let the s**t dribble out. Being too dumb to know you're dumb is not something to be proud of or celebrated. When did we become a society that worships stupid people?
  • Let me know when you walk on water again, so I can tune in. When did we become so self righteous, that we can judge people from afar? Honestly, I would love to know how many people, who deem him less than, actually listen to his albums. Posted via the Android Central App
  • "Famous" is the only song on there worth listening to Posted via the Android Central App and my Galaxy S7
  • Bam Bam Bam Bam Posted via the Android Central App
  • Oh look.. A flying ****.!!!! Someone else catch it.......it escaped before I could give it......did he really think he's that powerful that en mass, we'd all sign up to Tidal for his music... #JUSTADICK Posted via the Android Central App
  • No one gives a ✈ $#@ Posted via the Android Central App
  • **** Kanye. I hope he ends up like MC Hammer
  • What ? With a large collection of baggy spangly trousers ? Posted via the Android Central App
  • West is the musical Donald Trump. No one admires actual ability any more, they just gravitate and rally around someone who shouts the loudest thing that they agree with and seems most like them.
