CHVRCHES who were featured today on 101WKQX in Ticket Blitz Thursday, called our EDM artist Marshmello after he announced a collaboration with rapper Tyga and singer Chris Brown. Brown has had a long public history including assaulting his girlfriend and fellow singer Rihanna in 2009. Brown completed his probation related to the assault in 2015. While Tyga has come under fire for references sexual relations with underage girls in his lyrics. The band clarified they still appreciate and respect the masked DJ but expressed that working with these questionable artist “enables, excuses, and ultimately tacitly endorses that behavior”. You can read the entire statement below.
The Scottish synth-driven alternative band recently scored a hit when they collaborated with Marshmello on “Here with Me”.
