Kanye West announced that his new album The Life of Pablo will only be available via the music streaming service Tidal. The service normally costs $9.99 a month, but there’s a way to listen to the album for free for months. And for that, we can all thank Beyoncé.

Kanye fans who don’t want to pay up for a Tidal subscription have the option of using Tidal’s 30-day free trial subscription, to get access to The Life of Pablo for a month.

But as BusinessInsider noted, fans can actually enjoy The Life of Pablo for free for three months, thanks to Bey, by going to and signing up for a special 90-day free trial. Just be sure to cancel before the free trial is up or you’ll be charged for membership.

Then again, Kanye fans who don’t want to pay anything at all and don’t mind making criminals of themselves can always just pirate The Life of Pablo, which people seem to be doing in droves.
