The Weeknd wants labels to fund protests

The Weeknd made all headlines after announcing that he donated $500,000 to racial injustice initiatives, but also calling on some of the biggest record labels and music platforms to do the same thing.

“To my fellow respected industry partners and execs- no one profits off of black music more than the labels and streaming services. I gave yesterday and I urge you to go big and public with yours this week. It would mean the world to me and the community if you can join us on this,” the singer wrote on his Instagram account.

The total amount The Weeknd donated was split between Black Lives Matter Global Network, Colin Kaepernick’s Know Your Rights Camp and National Bail Out.

Still, we’re very curious if any big label will respond to this…
