The #MuteRKelly movement is definitely making strides as even #Spotify is taking action regarding the singer’s music.
To be clear, #RKelly music will still be available on Spotify, however, #BillBoard reports that “beginning today (May 10), Spotify users will no longer be able to find R. Kelly’s music on any of the streaming service’s editorial or algorithmic playlists.
“We are removing R. Kelly’s music from all Spotify owned and operated playlists and algorithmic recommendations such as Discover Weekly,” they said their statement. “His music will still be available on the service, but Spotify will not actively promote it. We don’t censor content because of an artist’s or creator’s behavior, but we want our editorial decisions — what we choose to program — to reflect our values. When an artist or creator does something that is especially harmful or hateful, it may affect the ways we work with or support that artist or creator.”
This come’s after more #RKelly accusations have come to surface. After years of being accused of sexual harassment, sex cults and things of the like, #RKelly has never been convicted of any of these alleged crimes.
Will y’all still be bumpin’ and grindin’ to #RKelly’s music?
