Looks like the “Me Too” movement is about to finally start hitting R&B crooner R. Kelly where it hurts. In the pockets. Just last week one of his shows were canceled. Today, Kels has a new issue directly related to the allegations against him. Spotify, one of the biggest music streaming services out there, has sort of put him on the back-burner.
BuzzFeed News (@buzzfeed) reports, R. Kelly’s music has been removed from all playlist and his music will no longer be promoted on the service. While listeners can still search and find Kelly’s music to listen to, Spotify will no longer recommend his tunes on its discover page.
“We are removing R. kelly’s music from all Spotify owned and operated playlist and algorithmic recommendations such as Discover Weekly. 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.” Spotify said in a statement.
