Spotify Contemplates the Removal of Chris Brown, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Nelly, Eminem & Others Music – Details Here!

Spotify is contemplating what some in the music industry are calling undue censorship as they review the possibilities of removing Chris Brown, Nelly and other artist music from their streaming platform. Spotify as of last week initiated its new “Hateful-Conduct” policy and subsequently removed R. Kelly and XXXTentacion’s music from their playlists. This move has concerned parties asking if all artist who are accused but not convicted of sexual or other alleged misconduct will in the future be removed from Spotify.

The bases of the platform’s new contemplation over Chris Brown and Nelly’s music stems from a letter penned by Shaunna Thomas, executive director of women’s rights organization UltraViolet. The letter which was addressed to Spotify’s CEO, Daniel Ek, states among other things, “Thank you for taking the important first step of removing infamous abusers R. Kelly and XXXTentacion from your official playlists. Your action demonstrates that Spotify is following the lead of Black women who demanded that these two men, who have sexually and physically abused women for years, not be promoted and celebrated”.

It continues “As you know, these two men are not the only abusers on your platform. We implore you to take a deeper look at the artists you promote. Every time a famous individual continues to be glorified despite allegations of abuse, we wrongly perpetuate silence by showing survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence that there will be no consequences for abuse. That has a cultural effect far beyond one individual artist”. The letter goes on to name Chris Brown, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Nelly, Eminem, Don Henley, Steven Tyler, Tekashi 6ix9ine and Ted Nugent.

It is now a wait and see what Spotify’s response will be and if other streaming platforms will follow their lead.
