After less than a month in existence, Spotify have rolled back their Hateful Conduct Policy, days after the company’s CEO admitted that mistakes had been made in its implementation.

Back in May, it was revealed that Spotify were to remove the music of artists who music supposedly “advocates, or incites hatred or violence against a group or individual.” Two artists that were specifically named by the streaming service included R. Kelly and XXXTentacion, and their music was soon removed from playlists on the platform in accordance with their new Hateful Conduct Policy.

While a US women’s advocacy group followed this news by urging Spotify to remove further artists, hip-hop artist Kendrick Lamar was reported to have hit back at the service, threatening to pull his music from Spotify because he felt that the new policy was unfairly targeting people of colour.

Now, after Spotify CEO Daniel Ek admitted that the company’s new policy was “rolled out wrong”, the streaming service has reverted its controversial new guidelines, with a number of reasons being cited for its removal.

“While we believe our intentions were good, the language was too vague, we created confusion and concern, and didn’t spend enough time getting input from our own team and key partners before sharing new guidelines,” the company explained in a post on its website.
