Pandora Follows Spotify And Stops Promoting R. Kelly's Music

Another streaming giant is washing their hands of Kells' music.

(AllHipHop News) Music officials at Pandora have followed rival streaming service Spotify’s lead by ending the promotion of R. Kelly’s songs on their platform.

R. Kelly found himself among those excluded, as he continues to fight sexual violence allegations and claims suggesting he is running a “sex cult,” and now executives at online radio service Pandora have revealed they have taken a similar approach.

“Pandora’s policy is to not actively promote artists with certain demonstrable behavioral, ethical or criminal issues,” they explain in a statement issued to TheBlast.com.

“We approach each of these scenarios on a case-by-case basis to ensure we address components true to Pandora’s principles while not overreaching and avoiding censorship.”

Fans of the "I Believe I Can Fly" hitmaker will still be able to enjoy his music on Pandora by searching for his discography or creating their own R. Kelly stations, but the tunes will not be actively marketed on their service to users.

R. Kelly’s representatives have yet to comment on the Pandora news, but after learning of the Spotify playlist removal, they took aim at site officials, insisting they were making the wrong decision.

In a statement, they wrote: “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. He never has been convicted of a crime, nor does he have any pending criminal charges against him.”

The renewed uproar over Kelly’s private life recently sparked a new campaign by anti-sexual misconduct activists at Time’s Up, who took to social media to urge music industry leaders to cut ties with the veteran singer over the claims.

Supporters of the “#MuteRKelly” effort included director Ava DuVernay and Scandal and Grey’s Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes.

Sharing my experience with fake brokers , Rescuedial(DOT)com genuineness is the real deal especially when I most needed it . I was a victim of false brokers scam working with fake brokers, this brokers insisted I won't be carrying out the trading myself, instructed to leave it to the professionals so they can make al lot of money for me, Total BS! they make winning trades with the loosing trades to make my account looked legit all the time and encouraging me to add funds to take advantage of a speculative fore casted big winner then they leave you to your trades to wonder what the hell to do because of lack of experience which will only lead to you seeing your account run out. Reading so many stories here from victims can't make me stop thanking God. still a miracle how Rescuedial got this done successfully

I was contacted from a Binary Options company based in Great Britain. I was offered a Binary Option trading account where experts' in their field would trade a Managed Account on my behalf and would take 10% of any profits. The minimum investment to access the Managed Account was £2,000. I was approached again once I made the £25,000 investment to add a further £40,000 to access a higher return on my investment not understanding the company was an entire scam! Then my lawsuit got lengthy and really costly, hence a certified Binary Options recovery expert Lonnie was recommended from a safe platform guided me on steps to take to recover my money back. Right now i have been able to recover my funds back. Binary option is a scam stay away. Contact lonnie on info@wealthrecoverynow.co
