Post R. Kelly
The controversy surrounding R. Kelly is obviously terrible, but does it really invalidate all of his hit songs and contributions to 1990’s R&B?

I think it’s mighty dumb that the original Do What U Want is gone from sales and streaming platforms. It’s only a matter of time before he’s essentially erased from music history.

It’s only because of the film. In two years people will be bouncing to Ignition once again.

Brace yourself for #Me2: Which major record producer has been Weinstein-ing for decades with wannabe teenage pop stars? Which boyband members were molested? We're about to find out!

If there comes a time when I don’t post for like 3 months, I’m probably dead. Thanks for the 15 years.

I am not sure he'll vanish from streaming services. You can still listen to Gary Glitter and Lostprophets' discographies on Spotify, albeit slightly buried.

There will still be an impact, though, of course. He'll never show up on official '90s-R&B-jams-themed playlists, etc. Whether this is right (his personal demons and abuses versus the objective cultural impact of "Ignition" and "Bump n' Grind")...I don't know, but private companies have the right to present or not present material how they please.


1. The Lost City of Z - 2. A Cure for Wellness - 3. Phantom Thread - 4. T2 Trainspotting - 5. Detroit - 6. Good Time - 7. The Beguiled - 8. The Florida Project - 9. Logan and 10. Molly's Game
