‘The show will be paused‘; Music business to pause in observation of Blackout Tuesday

Music companies and artists have said that they will pause for a day, on Tuseday, as part of a movement being referred to as Blackout Tuesday.

As CNN reports, music executives Jamila Thomas and Brianna Agyemang spearheaded the effort to shutter normal business operations on June 2 via their #theshowmustbepaused initiative.

Artists like the Rolling Stones, Quincy Jones and Billie Eilish have said they’ll observe the day. A number of artists have also canceled listening parties or fan events in response.

Labels including Def Jam Recordings, Interscope, Sony Music, Columbia Records and more are also expected to participate.
