Kanye West: Famous on Spotify
It's the only track to appear on another service besides Tidal.
Kanye West’s The Life of Pablo may have been released exclusively on Tidal, but now it appears that “Famous,” one of the album’s most popular songs, featuring vocals from Rihanna (and the controversial line about Taylor Swift), is available to stream on services like Spotify, Google Play Music, and Apple Music. It’s the first Pablo track to appear on those platforms.
The song appeared on Spotify on March 26, according to the service’s display information, and was first promoted by Spotify’s Rap Caviar playlist. This version of “Famous” is an updated rendition of the track, which uses the line “she be Puerto Rican day parade wavin” instead of for “she in school to be a real estate agent,” Pitchfork noted.
The streamable track comes just as West released “Ultralight Prayer” on Easter Sunday. Hear “Famous” via Spotify below.
