(Radio.com) Jay Z has removed most of his tracks from streaming music service Spotify to fight off competition with his own company, Tidal.The rapper pulled nine of his 12 albums from Spotify, but left his first three on the site.

The move will likely impact Jay Z's streaming stats since Spotify has 50 million subscribers, compared to Tidal's three million. But he's not the only music pioneer to pull his music from the site.

To date, Jay Z's wife Beyonce, Taylor Swift, Adele and Prince have all withdrawn from Spotify at one point or another. 'Some of [Jay Z's] catalogue has been removed at the request of the artist," read a statement issued by Spotify. Read more here.
