Published: Tuesday 2nd Jun 2020 by David

The Black community and its contributions to the zeitgeist have pumped billions of dollars into the music business

Today, the industry takes the first step towards returning the favour.

Find out how below…

A number of the world’s largest music streaming services have joined forces to endorse the Black Lives Matter movement following the latest wave of murders the African-American community has been hit by. [Hit this link to learn more]

Services such as Spotify and Apple Music have launched special playlists, moments of silence, and social media blackouts under the umbrella Blackout Tuesday to speak up and out against anti-blackness, racism and to honour the life of George Floyd.

‘The Verge’ reports…

Spotify will add an 8 minute and 46-second moment of silence to select playlists and podcasts on the platform. The length of the moment of silence is equal to the amount of time former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin pinned Floyd down by the neck with his knee, resulting in Floyd’s death.

Apple Music is getting in on the action by celebrating black musicians on its Beats 1 platform.

    Without black music and black artists/musicians, there wouldn’t BE popular music as we all know it, PERIOD…I say that knowing music connects ALL of us and provides a place for all of us…it’s the soundtrack to ALL our lives…and I say that being in LOVE 🥰 with all kinds of GREAT, inspiring artists, black, white, brown, etc…but make no mistake about it, without the very giving, loving, treasured, sometimes sadly forgotten or overshadowed, and absolutely AMAZING ❤️ contributions of BLACK artists to American music and to other parts of the world, time and time again, generation after generation, genre after genre…that SOUL…that ENERGY…that MAGIC..that SPECIAL something that creates whole GENRES of music from R&B, Funk, Soul, Jazz, Rock N Roll, House, Techno, Hip-Hop…popular music would be very DIFFERENT lol 👊🏽🤳🏽💯
