(Newser) – Whether Kanye West has actually finished The Life of Pablo is unclear. But as of Tuesday, one song from the so-called "anti-album" is finally up on Spotify, Apple Music, and Google Play, Esquire reports. The song is "Famous," featuring Rihanna and the "I made that bitch famous" line that Kanye says Taylor Swift herself came up with (her camp denies it). As Billboard notes, West had previously said listeners could only access tracks from the album on the not-free Tidal service—and just last month he insisted on Twitter that "my album will never never never be on Apple. And it will never be for sale." "Famous" showed up with no explanation Monday morning on Apple and the other streaming services. (Kanye may also be busy writing Kim Kardashian's tweets.)
