Celine Dion and Chance The Rapper follow Lady Gaga in removing their R. Kelly collaborations from streaming services

The Canadian legend and Chicago rapper are the latest acts to distance themselves from the R&B singer.

Celine Dion and Chance The Rapper are the latest stars to distance themselves from R. Kelly, removing their work with the R&B singer from the internet.

Following Lady Gaga's removal of her Official Chart Top 10 hit Do What U Want which features R. Kelly, the French-Canadian legend and the US rapper have also taken down their songs that featured him.

Many artists are taking a stand after allegations of sexual misconduct against the I Believe I Can Fly singer were raised in the Lifetime documentary Surviving R. Kelly.

While Celine's 1998 collaboration with R. Kelly I'm Your Angel is yet to be removed from Spotify, the duet has been pulled from iTunes, Apple Music, YouTube and Deezer. I'm Your Angel originally featured on Celine's Christmas album These Are Special Times, and was also on the tracklisting of her 2008 retrospective The Essential.

Meanwhile, Chance The Rapper, who appeared in the Netflix doc and labelled working with R. Kelly as "a mistake", has taken down their 2015 collaboration Somewhere In Paradise from all platforms.

I made a mistake and I'm happy that those women are getting voices now," he said. “I can grow to understand better what my positioning should be or should've been when that opportunity came." 

French band Phoenix have also apologised for collaborating with Kelly at Coachella in 2013, performing a mashup of Ignition (Remix) with their song 1901. Kelly also remixed the band's song Trying To Be Cool.

“We are deeply horrified by the stories of abuse surrounding R Kelly,” a statement on the French band’s Twitter account said. "We regret that we were not both more informed and more discerning when we worked with him previously. We fully support all victims of sexual abuse, and it’s our hope that there will be a path to justice."
