The decision to drop R Kelly from Sony's roster comes two weeks after the documentary series Surviving R. Kelly drew fresh attention to the sex abuse allegations against the singer
New York: Multiple outlets have reported that Sony Music has dropped embattled R&B star R. Kelly from its roster.
The announcement comes two weeks after the popular documentary series Surviving R. Kelly drew fresh attention to the sex abuse allegations against R. Kelly, which have dogged him most of his career. The #MeToo and #MuteRKelly movements have held protests, demanding his music be dropped from streaming services and beyond.
Representatives for Sony and RCA Records, where R. Kelly was signed to, didn’t immediately return emails seeking comment.
Lady Gaga and Celine Dion recently removed their duets with R Kelly from streaming services and French rock band Phoenix apologized for collaborating with the singer in 2013.
R Kelly has denied all allegations of sexual misconduct involving women and underage girls.
His first album on Sony, 1992′s Born into the 90′s, was with the group Public Announcement. His massively successful solo debut, 12 Play, was released a year later.
