If you block an artist, it will not apply to songs that they are featured on.

The feature comes as Spotify has been under immense pressure to block American musician R Kelly after the #MuteRKelly protests online. Robert Sylvester Kelly has been subject to numerous allegations of sexual abuse and misconduct.

Spotify hasn't been launched in India yet. However, the music streaming platform is expected to finally make its official entry into the country this month itself, on 31 January.

The news comes right after the announcement that Spotify and T-Series, film and music company in India (which is battling with PewDiePie for the top channel spot on YouTube) had collaborated where-in Spotify customers will be able to access to T-Series’ entire catalogue of Indian music, including regional, Bollywood and songs.
