Home law The Show Must Be Paused: Entire Music Industry Will Take Tuesday as...

Two record execs from Atlantic Records, Brianna Agyemang and Jamila Thomas, came up with the plan for a Blackout Tuesday tomorrow, June 2nd. The entire music industry will stop and pause for reflection and involvement in community. Implicitly this in memory of George Floyd, and all victims of anti-black racism.

I think the only thing that will continue will be the counting of record sales. Otherwise, every artist and record label has announced they will observe theshowmustbepaused.com. All offices will be closed. Radio will go on, and hopefully programmers will play meaningful music throughout the day. It feels like 1968, and that’s a good thing. (PS Nice that this is coming from Atlantic Records. Ahmet, Nesuhi, Arif, Jerry, Tom– they’d be proud.)
