As per their new policy, Spotify is currently removing playlists of some artists that have been accused, convicted, or admitted to illegal activity.
Spotify explained that it’s their choice whether are not they will remove a specific playlist. The company is choosing a program that would reflect them as a company. They will not tolerate artists’ or creators’ harmful or hateful behavior because for them, it may affect the ways they work with or support that artist or creator.
Listeners will no longer see the music of R. Kelly, an R&B star, on Spotify’s influential curated packages because of several allegations of sexual assault. Similar to the young rapper and singer, Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy “XXXTentacion”, who is now facing charges of aggravated battery of a pregnant woman and witness tampering in Florida.
Spotify will no longer promote the two artists’ music because of their new policy.
