r. kelly is getting his comeuppance.
the “lifetime” documentary,
“surviving r. kelly”,
has really put a massive dent in his already damaged reputation.
everyone has been campaigning for him to be dropped from his label,
well that happened today.
this is what “billboard” had to font…
Sony and R. Kelly have agreed to part ways, sources tell Billboard. The news comes on the heels of the Lifetime documentary Surviving R. Kelly, which detailed allegations of sexual misconduct against the singer.
Reps for Sony and R. Kelly could not be immediately reached. Kelly has also now been removed from the RCA website.
Kelly had been signed to Jive since the beginning of his career in the early 1990s, and when Jive became part of Sony BMG, he became part of the Sony umbrella. He has been under contract at RCA, a Sony subsidiary, since 2012.
Kelly’s catalog will remain with RCA/Sony and his music is still available on digital retailers and streaming services.
so he gets dropped now?
they didn’t drop him during his popularity.
not only that,
he can release music independently.
his stans will buy it since they don’t gaf.
sony will still be making money off his catalog too.
i don’t think this a big loss for r. kelly.
it’s a “a little too late” as well.
so i had to ask the foxhole…
Is this really the end for R. Kelly?
lowkey: his collabs with
and chance the rapper have all been removed from streaming.
