Chance The Rapper Follows Lady GaGa's Example in Pulling Out R. Kelly Collaboration

A little over a week after apologizing for working with the 'I Believe I Can Fly' hitmaker, the 'No Brainer' rapper is reported to have wiped 'Somewhere in Paradise' from streaming sites.

AceShowbiz - Chance The Rapper has removed his collaboration with embattled singer R. Kelly from several streaming sites.

The "I Believe I Can Fly" hitmaker is facing renewed scrutiny following the premiere of Lifetime documentary "Surviving R.Kelly" earlier this month (January 2019). The film chronicled the stories of women who claimed to have been allegedly physically and sexually abused by the singer.

Kelly has denied all accusations against him, but it seems many of his famous friends and collaborators are choosing not to support him any longer, and Lady GaGa and Celine Dion recently pulled their collaborations with Kelly from online streaming and downloading sites.

Chance, real name Chancelor Bennett, has also spoken out against Kelly and apologised for working with him on 2015's "Somewhere in Paradise".

"(T)he truth is any of us who ever ignored the R Kelly stories, or ever believed he was being setup/attacked by the system (as black men often are) were doing so at the detriment of black women and girls," he wrote on social media. "I apologize to all of his survivors for working with him and for taking this long to speak out."

According to Pitchfork, Chance has wiped his Kelly collaboration track from streaming sites like Spotify, Apple Music and Tidal.
