Country music star canceled on lots of streaming platforms


With 12,067,886 monthly listeners, Morgan Wallen was recently removed from multiple music streaming apps and radios. His music contract was ‘suspended… indefinitely’ by his base label out of Nashville. He was canceled from all of the streaming services due to a video captured of Wallen using a racial slur. The country music star was at his house yelling profanities and a racial slur recorded by a neighbor, soon after TMZ posted a video of the action. The streaming providers that took his music down include Cumulus Media, iHeartRadio, Entercom, CMT cable network, SiriusXM, Pandora, Spotify, and Apple Music. 

Wallen has been in the country music industry since 2014 and has accumulated a net worth of 2.5 million. Shortly after he apologized for his profanity and choice of words. He told news outlets that he knows what he did was inappropriate and unacceptable. Tyanne Bartel (24) said, “I really like his music, he has some really good songs. He made a bad decision by saying that word, and in today’s world “cancel culture” can ruin someone really fast. I really hope he can keep making music because he has a gift, but next time he needs to be mindful about what he says, drunk or not!” As his choice of word has become more popular to be offending, his actions have made fans rethink opinions of him. Peter Mongan says, “It’s a shame to see such a great artist not be able to perform during a time where every opportunity is needed.” Wallens main source of income is from his music, but he has collaborated with other artists. Wallen’s new album Dangerous: The Double Album, recently came out and broke records with the songs being the top of the Billboard 200 chart in the first three weeks, but this could change due to the loss of streams.
