Spotify has been under immense hot water and has been facing countless controversies lately. From, various music artists from Neil Young, Crosby Stills and Nash, Joni Mitchell, India Arie, and others asked the platform to remove their music because of virus misinformation.
This iconic band break from Neil Young on Spotify. Still, Young proclaims that he is not in favor of censorship as he stated in a letter on his website that he supports free speech. “Private companies have the right to choose what they profit from, just as I can choose not to have my music support a platform that disseminates harmful information. I am happy and proud to stand in solidarity with the front-line healthcare workers who risk their lives every day to help others”
Eve 6 – best known for their hit singles “Inside Out,” “Leech,” “Here’s to the Night,” and “Promise recently put out a series of posts on social media via Twitter condemning Spotify.
