Celine Dion Pulls R. Kelly Collab “I’m Your Angel” From Streaming Services

Celine Dion follows in Lady Gaga’s footsteps and removes her R. Kelly collaboration off streaming services.

The ever-growing list of people who want nothing to do with R. Kelly continues to expand. After immense pressure to respond, Lady Gaga wrote a heart-felt message detailing her reasoning for collaborating with R. Kelly in 2013, and ultimately decided their work together should no longer be available. Her ARTPOP track, “Do What U Want,” was removed from streaming services like Apple Music and Spotify. The version with Christina Aguilera is there instead.

Dion is in the process of making a similar move, TMZ reports. Her song with R. Kelly, “I’m Your Angel,” which appeared on Dion’s 1998 album, These are  Special Times, is getting the ax. It’s worth mentioning the song topped Billboard’s Hot 100 for six weeks and went Platinum, selling more than 1.5 million copies.

After Gaga’s big R. Kelly announcement, their collab soared up the iTunes’ Top Songs chart before it was removed. Expect something similar to happen with Celine.

I’m torn on this. There’s no doubt R. Kelly is a monster, but does an artist removing their collab with him change the past? Or is it a PR tool? No one will fault Celine or Gaga for removing the song, but where’s the line? If musicians/actors started making their work unavailable based on peoples’ past, there would be nothing left. Then again, I get not wanting to have an alleged sexual abuser/********* attached to your work, drawing a line in the sand and taking a stand for the victims.

“Many of these stories I was hearing when I, myself, was wayyyy underage. Making my first album at 12 and then 14/15. I was a HUGEEEEE R Kelly fan, came from a broken home, had daddy issues, and wondered…how did these girls get chosen? I wondered if I could/would be,” she said.

Fortunately, JoJo’s mom never let her “get too close to predatory men who wanted to do god-knows-what to me,” adding that “If I didn’t have her, I could have easily fallen victim to someone like R. Kelly. Period.”
