The availability of music on Spotify is up to the artists and their music label, so the reason is that the artist or their music label has likely decided to remove it from Spotify.

 

Sometimes the music is only available in certain countries, while access is blocked to others.

 

Sometimes the album or song will be unavailable temporary, and come back again later.

 

Hopefully it will come back later.

Hey, Meghan. I just found out that her whole catalog is on Tidal. She probably owns her master recordings and got tired of Spotify not pay her much of percentage of streams.

I wondered the same thing because I was listening to her radio and it took me a while to realize her songs weren't playing that often. I'm really aggravated with that. She's my vibe music!

I fully understand.
These are legal issues often times, other times an artist or executive gets a wild hair growing in the wrong direction or place.
As a third party source/provider, distributor, your company only supply what you're given access to.
My wife loves Anita Baker's music. She really puzzled this week on a cross country family trip from Indianapolis to Houston. Why are the same 3 songs constantly playing. I told her, Anita has probably pulled a "Prince" and had her music removed.
I truly enjoy Spotify, I think you guy are the BEST and definitely my FAVORITE.

Go to SoundCloud find someone who posted her song the add it to your playlist on your desktop. There are instructions on google on how to add your OWN songs to Spotify and add them to your playlist. This is how I add a lot of songs they don't have on Spotify. When I find the link with instructions I'll post again

Hi Spotify. I have read all the comments and that was earlier in the year when you replied it is 10.12.16. What is going on with the Anita Baker music... Please get it back. TIFFANY

Evidently it was not short term as there is very limited music still her in almost November 2016 for Anita Baker. The same happened to all my Prince music. If this continues I will have to cancel my membership with Spotify.
