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.

I saw an interview on Tv about how a victim who was scammed by HQbroker and 3 other scam brokers and was only happy to share his story cause He'd got it back through a wealth recovery group SWIFTRECOUP . COM;- I decided to contact the wealth recovery group (swiftrecoup) as well, My first question I put to them was that I would like to hear their opinion on HQBroker and Cryptonxt.io and whether they ever return the money invested and earned with their recovery analysts. I have invested over $500k and they have supposedly made me over $4 million but now they wanted me to send them more money to pay the Chinese Gov’t taxes before we could get the money back to me. I only had $30k and I sent it to them so that we could get some money released by the chinese gov’t and then I would send more money to get more money released. I think is seems very fishy that they would require me to pay taxes up front before releasing money. I added a fact that I have been talking to Ross Malone(Account manager) there, and he has seemed so nice and caring, but after this last payment, he has gone silent and isn’t returning my emails. Now, granted he might be out or sick, but this is seemingly unusual. On speaking out my mind to contact@swiftrecoup. COM. They advised me not to send any money to them and guided me to a swift recovery of my invested funds I have with them.

After I invested a total of $121,830, they tried to pull a fast one and put a bag over my eyes with claims of my investments been LOST ON BAD TRADES. Fortunately, earlier in the week I saw an interview on YoutubeTV about how a man had been scammed 4 times by binary options and was only happy to share his story cause He'd got it back through www. LEGAL247RECOVERY. com, so I looked up the link and reported to them. They got it all back in a week along with profits and damages. Too many bad eggs out there, stay secure. Report your case to them already.

My experience with HQBroker is nothing to write about. I opened an account with HQBroker by seeing an add and as soon as I completed my registration, they called me to activate my account by depositing $250 and after some tradings making me believe i had made profits on my starting amount of $250, the account manager assigned to me called and convinced me to deposit 5000 EURO using my credit card(XX31-XX05-XX48) and started placing trades with screen sharing, for the first few trades, profits were made but was told it couldn't withdraw. Later he said we will make account 20K EURO in few days only, then made me place some trades on so many things that made my account go to ZERO balance all of a sudden. I was told before this to safeguard my account which led to depositing of more and more funds. I lost the first shot of 20k EURO which was all paid using my credit card and my friends cards as well. They make me believe and assumed there was no luck for me with my present account manager so another account manager was assigned to me calling and telling me we will put in the recovery plan, I believed again and lost much more to him and just like that i got 3-4 account managers changed all in the name of recovery. All together I lost all my money exactly 150,000 EURO. At this point I had family bills to pay and also my kids school fees so I was devastated and was going through online for answers or solutions one way or the other then I came across a good review of a company {info@Recoverycircle .Eu} saw reviews of how they got some funds recovered for certain victims then I decided to entrust them with the responsibility of getting back my funds and today i can tell you I never regretted. It's the best decision I made this new year.Grateful for the assistance.

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
