The lifetime docu-series “Surviving R.Kelly” has opened an entire dialogue on R. Kelly and the numerous sexual abuse allegations that surround him. His alleged patterns of abuse have sparked the hashtag #muteRkelly and many artistes are denouncing him, while also expressing regret for having worked with him in the past.
The general public is now boycotting the singer’s music and so is his record label apparently. According to a reports, RCA and Sony are putting a hold on R.Kelly’s music.
Kelly’s label is saying they will not produce, put money behind, or release any of his music until the allegations against him have a resolution. There is currently a criminal investigation against the singer in Georgia, which is one of the major reasons why the label is wary of releasing any new music.
Reports also have it that R.Kelly has been in the studio writing and making new music and he’s upset at the fact that he has been frozen from releasing anything. In order to get out of his contract, Kelly must release two more albums, but with the hold put on him, he is unable to meet those requirements.
RCA and Sony have not commented on the situation just yet. Stay tuned for more updates on the situation.
