(AP) — It’s no joke. After six weeks of streaming exclusively on Tidal, the Jay-Z-backed music service, Kanye West’s latest album, “The Life of Pablo,” was released to other streaming platforms like Spotify and Apple Music.


The wide release comes after West tweeted in February that the album “will never never never be on Apple. And it will never be for sale.”

The tweet appeared to be deleted from West’s timeline as of Friday, and the album went on sale for $20 on West’s website.

Tidal, which counts West among its 20 artist owners, announced three days ago that the album had been streamed 250 million times in the first 10 days of its release, helping it gain 3 million subscribers. Tidal has a 30-day free trial period.
