Spotify has developed new policies to protect users on its platform, based on recommendations from organizations like The Southern Poverty Law Center, The Anti-Defamation League, Color Of Change, Showing Up for Racial Justice, GLAAD, Muslim Advocates, and International Network Against Cyber Hate. With all of the current and past controversies surrounding R. Kelly regarding allegations of sexual abuse and the new #MuteRKelly movement, Spotify under its new Hate Content & Hateful Conduct policy, has taken action to minimize the exposure of his music on their platform. Under the new policy, Spotify has removed R. Kelly’s music from its promoted, editorial and algorithmic playlists but his music will still be available to those who execute a search it.

The policy used to execute the removal of R. Kelly and also XXXTentacion’s music states, “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 seem to want it stressed that they are not into music censorship, but they will not actively promote artist whose actions and/ or content are not in line with their own.
