Spotify Thursday announced it would no longer feature R. Kelly songs in its playlists or user recommendations, after the Time's Up movement for gender equality urged the music business to dump the R&B star over sexual abuse allegations.The move marks the first application of Spotify's new policy on "Hate Content & Hateful Conduct," which states an artist's behavior may result in changes in how Spotify promotes their content.Users of both the free and subscription-based versions of Spotify will still be able to find R. Kelly's music on the service.The organization also called upon several music industry heavyweights, including streaming services, as well as Kelly's record label to cut ties with him.
