Today Is Blackout Tuesday

Today is blackout Tuesday. The music industry has basically staged a blackout across the board. That means no new music will be released today and business activity is ceased, in the wake of George Floyd’s death.  Universal Music Group, Warner Music, Atlantic Records, Columbia Records, Interscope, Def Jam, Sony and others say this is not a day off, “it’s a day to contemplate, connect and organize” says Columbia records.

You will also notice lots of people showing a black image on Instagram today.
