Spotify has announced that it will support Black Out Tuesday.
It is a movement created in the American music industry designed to protest against police brutality and racism following the death of George Floyd at the hands of the police.
The movement was started by Atlanta Records’ marketing chief Jamila Thomas and former Atlantic employee Brianna Agyemang in their social media campaign #TheShowMustBePaused.
Spotify released a statement in their newsletter, saying: “We are using the power of our platform to stand with Black creators, amplify their voices, and accelerate meaningful conversation and long-needed change.
“As a result, you’ll notice some changes on Spotify starting at 12.01am on Tuesday [June 2].”
