While people are protesting following the death of George Floyd

Several artists from the music industry are calling for labels, streaming services, and other corporations to contribute to anti-racist efforts.

While protests around the world have been taking place after the death of George Floyd, the Weeknd shared a challenge to Warner Music, Sony Music, Universal Music Group, Spotify, and Apple Music by asking them to “go big and public” by donating to anti-racism causes after decades of “profits off of black music.”

The day before, Jack Antonoff asked on Twitter, “How much money is being donated from the labels, publishers, streaming services and all other corners of the music industry tomorrow? I can’t find this info.” To which Tegan and Sara responded with, “We would love to know too.”

Several rising artists like Shura and Cavetown have been joining in the calls to action. Check out some of the tweets below.
