R. Kelly dropped from music label

Sony Music announced the label has decided to part ways with embattled R&B singer R. Kelly.

Kelly has come under fire for numerous allegations of sexual misconduct, according to reports.

The singer has faced allegations for years, and a new series from the Lifetime Network has brought many of these allegations back to light. A nationwide social media protest called #MuteRKelly has called for a boycott to his music.

R. Kelly, who has sold more 40 million albums worldwide and won three Grammy awards, started his career under record label Jive Records, which in 2003 was acquired by Sony BMG.

RCA, a Sony subsidiary, has represented Kelly since 2012. As of Friday, he is no longer listed as an artist on RCA Records' website.
