R. Kelly will step in the name of love to the curb as his label RCA Records has reportedly dropped him. This comes from intense scrutiny from #MuteRKelly movement and public outcry following “Surviving R. Kelly” documentary. Variety reports that although reps declined to comment on record, they’ve learned the Sony Music/RCA has parted ways with the troubled singer.
Sony Music has decided to dissolve its working relationship with R. Kelly, Variety has learned.
No external announcement of the move is planned in the immediate future, says a source, who added that Kelly’s presence on the RCA website (where he remains listed) will not indicate his departure from the company, as his back catalog will remain with RCA/Sony.
