RCA Records drops R. Kelly

On January 18, 2019, RCA Records and its parent company Sony Music finally announced that they were cutting ties with RKelly.

The work to hold RKelly accountable for sexual abuse of minors has been a long and harrowing battle for justice for all the Black girls who were disbelieved and made vulnerable to Kelly. This victory is for them. Sony’s decision to finally drop Kelly is in part thanks to UltraViolet members who followed the lead of Black women organizers working for years to #MuteRKelly.We were proud to work alongside leaders of the #MuteRKelly movement, Color of Change, Girls for Gender Equity and more. See what UltraViolet members did.
