A week after releasing his new album, 4:44, on his streaming service, Tidal, rapper Jay-Z has made it available on iTunes, Apple Music and Amazon Music.

The album was released last week exclusively on Tidal, which Jay-Z co-owns with Beyonce, Rihanna, Madonna and other artists.

4:44 has yet to appear on Spotify or Pandora.

The Recording Industry Association of America announced Wednesday that 4:44 had reached platinum status based off streams and downloads given to Sprint users in the U.S. by the phone company (Sprint bought a 33 per cent stake in Tidal earlier this year). 

RIAA's platinum certification was once the equivalent of selling a million albums, but has changed since the company began incorporating streaming from YouTube, Spotify and other digital music services. 

4:44 includes personal songs about Jay-Z's marriage with singer Beyoncé and his life as an entrepreneur.
