A reliable close source has confirmed to Scoop Trend that Sony Music has dropped the embattled R&B Star R.Kelly from its roster.
This is coming two weeks after the “Surviving R. Kelly documentry series which drew a lot of sexual assault accusations against R.Kelly.
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.
However fellow artists like 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.
