R Kelly song removed on spotify
R. Kelly, XXXTentacion, and Tay-K are among the first of the artists to have been hit by the change, and Spotify has been receiving some backlash for their decision, from artists such as 50 Cent and X.
A while ago, R. Kelly’s team responded to the Spotify’s changes, and they’re not pleased. R. Kelly’s management released a statement today, condemning Spotify for their decision.
“Mr. Kelly for 30 years has sung songs about his love and passion for women. He is innocent of the false and hurtful accusations in the ongoing smear campaign against him, waged by enemies seeking a payoff,” says the statement.
“Meanwhile, though, Spotify promotes numerous other artists who are convicted felons,” the statement continues, “others who have been arrested on charges of domestic violence and artists who sing lyrics that are violent and anti-women in nature.”
Spotify claims that it decides which artists violate their new anti-hate policy on a “case-by-case basis,” so it’s currently unknown how many artists will eventually be affected by these changes.
