Kanye West's new album is now available on Spotify, Google Play Music and Apple Music.
The 38-year-old rapper released 'Life of Pablo' exclusively on Tidal earlier this year, but he has now made it available on the other streaming services, less than a week after he allowed one track - 'Famous', which features Rihanna - to feature there.
Kanye previously insisted the record would remain a Tidal exclusive forever and though it is now on Apple Music, he had vowed it would "never never never be on Apple."
However, the record has yet to be made available on the company's iTunes service.
Users of the streaming services can expect their listening experience of 'Life of Pablo' to change over time, as Kanye recently re-worked some of the tracks that were up on Tidal.
He tweeted last month: "Fixing Wolves 2day ... Worked on it for 3 weeks. Life Of Pablo is a living breathing changing creative expression. #contemporaryart (sic)"
Track 'Famous' now contains additional vocal layering for Rhianna's hook , 'Wolves' has more prominent contributions from Vic Mensa and Sia, and Frank Ocean debuts on brand new song 'Frank's Track', a 38-second extension of 'Wolves' that contains his part from the original song.
Kanye is remaining in the studio and has already teased his next album will be called 'Turbo Grafx 16'.
He took to Twitter and joked his next musical offering will be named after a computer games console from the 1980s that he loved as a child.
He previously tweeted: "My next album is titled "Turbo Grafx 16" as of now... (sic)"
However, he seemed to back track, swiftly adding: "Just on some super nerd vibes ... one of my favourite gaming systems when I was a kid... (sic)"
Kanye - who is married to Kim Kardashian West - added: "Excited to see my family and finish the final mixes of the Life of Pablo and keep working on Turbo Grafx 16 and Season 4... sic)"
