India.Arie vented in a video message to clarify her reason for removing her music from Spotify. The artist condemned the company for providing insufficient royalties to musicians and for failing to discipline Joe Rogan, the podcaster who has repeatedly made racist comments on his Spotify platform.   

"Spotify is built on the back of the music streaming. So they take this money that's built from streaming and they pay this guy $100 million, but they pay us .003% of the pay?" Arie said, referring to Rogan's revenue. "Just take me off. I don't wanna generate money that pays this."
