As a music fan I’m saddened by this, but as a businessman I get it. Artists make next to nothing on these streaming platforms. As far as I know, Anatii releases music through his own indie label, so he can actually make more money from a platform like Bandcamp https://t.co/QSpzT6diDn

Anatii should’ve just removed his music and kept quite if he wasn’t prepared to explain to his fans why he removed it.
