Spotify reportedly testing mute artist feature, so goodbye R. Kelly, Chris Brown and Gary Glitter


LOS ANGELES (CIRCA) — It looks like Spotify will soon enough enable users to block or mute artists. So say goodbye to the musicians whose music you dislike, politics you despise or past reeks of the choices of a garbage human.

According to The Verge, streaming music service Spotify is preparing to test out the feature on the iOS version of its app. By tapping the “don’t play this artist” function, his or her songs won’t disgrace your ears, no matter what library, playlist, chart list or Spotify station you’re listening to.

Judging from screenshots of the feature shared by Thurrott, users will have to click on an artist’s name or open their page to see the block option.

Spotify’s feature test comes at an interesting time, considering all the publicity garnered for the #MuteRKelly movement urging consumers to stop giving the R&B singer business in the wake of the miniseries “Surviving R. Kelly” re-shining light on abusive and sexually explicit allegations against him.

Other artists you might want to go ahead and block:

Chris Brown: We all remember that horrid assault on Rihanna he pleaded guilty to. We haven’t all forgiven him yet.

Gary Glitter: The “Rock and Roll” singer’s convictions for raping little girls got pretty much turned him from a Jock Jam mainstay to unplayable.

Nickelback: I mean, you’ve heard them, right?

Morrissey: No explanation needed.

Your music habits will reveal your deepest desire.
