Is the #MuteRKelly campaign 30 years too late? There’s one person who definitely thinks so; R. Kelly.
The R&B legend is seen in a recently surfaced video addressing the ongoing campaign – supported by fellow celebrities, industry insiders, and music lovers alike – calling for the removal of his music from popular streaming platforms. Weeks after the hashtag first began making its rounds, Spotify, Pandora, and Apple Music all answered the call in favor of his detractors (click here to read more).
Unsurprisingly, his supporters struck back by helping boost his streaming numbers on the platforms who continue to play his music. With all the hoop-la continuing, the ill-timed video suggested that Kelly directed his ‘too late’ comments to his most recent accusers. His team says he was referring to the music platforms who have abandoned him.
