Today is a big day for Jay-Z.
Not only does the rapper/producer/husband to Beyonce turn 50, but his music catalog has also made a miraculous return to Spotify after a two-year absence.
“Happy birthday, Hov,” tweeted the streaming service Wednesday. “Welcome back to Spotify.”
Happy birthday, Hov 🎁

Jay-Z is the owner of Spotify competitor Tidal, which makes the return an interesting one.
TooFab has reached out to Jay-Z, Spotify and Tidal seeking comment.
While we’ve been patiently waiting to see if Beyonce will interrupt her perfectly pleasing Instagram page aesthetic to wish her hubby a happy birthday, we noticed a fellow First Lady beat her to the punch.
“An icon turns 50,” Hillary Clinton captioned a candid shot of a conversation she had with the upstanding couple, while Bey was sporting an “I’m With Her” shirt. “Jay-Z’s story is as American a tale as they come — full of poetry, hard work, and pushing for progress on issues he cares about. (For more, I recommend @MichaelEricDyson’s definitive biography.) Happy birthday, Jay!”

We’re not so sure Hillary’s daughter, Chelsea Clinton, will be joining her mother in wishing the mogul well today. In October, she expressed disappointment in the way Jay reacted to his wife’s postpartum weight loss.
In Beyonce’s Netflix documentary, “Homecoming” — which chronicled the lead-up to her iconic Coachella performance — the singer enthusiastically FaceTimed her husband to show him how much her hard work in the gym, kitchen and studio had paid off. According to Clinton, Jay didn’t have the reaction she would’ve wanted.
“And I said, ‘Marc, if that’s ever me, you better have more enthusiasm,'” she recalled telling her husband. “It wasn’t the ‘I’m so proud of you, that’s amazing’ that I arguably think any woman deserves, particularly someone who has clearly worked herself body, mind, heart, soul and spirit to get to that place. Marc was like, ‘Duly noted.'”
Clinton, who was pregnant with the couple’s third child at the time, said she felt that every woman who watched “Homecoming” thought: “She deserves more enthusiasm.”
Happy birthday, Jay! Wishing you more enthusiasm than Chelsea Clinton feels you gave Bey in “Homecoming.”
