The music industry is poised to collectively stop work for the day on Tuesday, June 2, following the death of George Floyd while in police custody.

A widely circulated message called on companies to “disconnect from work and reconnect with our community.”

Major labels confirmed to be observing the blackout so far include Columbia, Warner Music Group, Capitol, Universal, Sony, Def Jam, Elektra, Interscope, Geffen, A&M, Island, Republic and Virgin.

There will be no fresh content in our music section on Tuesday.
