R. Kelly Has Reportedly Been Removed From Sony Music’s Label

R. Kelly has officially been removed from Sony Music’s label, following increased pressure against R. Kelly regarding his allegations of sexual abuse.

Sony Music has reportedly made the decision to remove R. Kelly from its label.

According to Variety, the RCA Records website removed R. Kelly from its list of signed artists on Friday, January 18. The list of R. Kelly’s previously released songs will reportedly stay with RCA/Sony. Kelly last released a Christmas album through the label in 2016, in addition to several songs released independently.

This action follows the increasing public pressure for the company to drop Kelly. The years of pressure increased dramatically, after the release of the Lifetime documentary, Surviving R. Kelly. The film showcased several women who have accused R. Kelly of sexual misconduct.

Allegations of sexual abuse have surrounded Kelly for the past 20 years. Although never convicted, several charges have been brought against the singer over the years. RCA has stood by Kelly through these allegations, but increasing public pressure and spotlight from the documentary has likely forced their hand.
