Jun 20 2023 • 37 mins

On this week's episode, we look at key movements on the Spotify Weekly Top Songs India chart published on June 16 and talk about whether artists should publicly express their political viewpoints. We discuss why a controversial post had a relatively small impact for an act behind a big mover in the top ten and explore how the repercussions for being outspoken can vary for musicians working in different genres and segments of the industry. We also touch upon why sometimes it's necessary for performers to take a stand.
