Celine Dion Takes Grammy-Nominated Duet With R. Kelly Off Streaming Services


The transformation of love to disgust is getting so real for R.Kelly as Celine Dion recently joined the long list of celebrities trying to have nothing to do with him by removing her 1998 R. Kelly duet “I’m Your Angel” from all digital streaming platforms.

The tune, which was number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, was part of Celine’s Christmas album “These Are Special Times.”

The record was also nominated for Best Pop Collaboration With Vocals at the 1999 Grammys.

“I’m Your Angel” is still available to stream on R. Kelly’s R., as well as the compilations The R. in R&B Collection, Vol. 1 and The Essential R. Kelly. Kelly is credited as the primary artist on those releases.

Following Dion’s removal request—as reported by TMZ—the song no longer features on any releases attributed to Dion herself.

Dion’s decision to take “I’m Your Angel” off DSPs came after Lifetime aired the documentary series “Surviving R. Kelly,” in which many people talk about Kelly’s history of alleged abuse.

Several artistes who have collaborated with R. Kelly, like Chance the Rapper, Lady Gaga, and Phoenix—have also apologized for their collaborations. G

Alicia Keys is set to host the 2019 Grammy Awards that is set to happen on Feb. 10 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

The “No One.” singer shared the news today via a video on her YouTube channel.

“I’m soooo EXCITED to announce that I’ll be hosting the 61st Annual Grammy Awards ?!! There’s so much in store and I CAN’T WAIT for y’all to see it ALL come to life ? Tune in on February 10th at 5PM PST / 8PM EST. Only on CBS!”

“I know what it feels like to be on that stage and I know what it feels like to be proud of the work that you’ve put in, and to be recognized for it. And I’m just feel grateful that I’m able to bring that light and that energy.

“This is a first. It’s a first. It’s amazing. And I think it’s perfect timing. Honestly, I’m really excited. I feel really good about it, because I feel like it’s the perfect opportunity to give the light back [and] to lift people up, especially all the young women who are nominated. To me, it feels like sister vibes.”
