Is Troy Carter leaving Spotify? Rumor spread that Spotfiy's global head of creator services was leaving after the streamer's new 'hate and hurtful' policy banned XXXTentacion, R Kelly and others from official playlists. While concerned that the policy smacked of censorship, Carter denied the rumors. Now, they've resurfaced with a destination attached to the move.
Troy Carter will be exiting Spotify for Epic Records, the New York Post is reporting. Both Spotify and the label have denied the move.
Growing Spotify Exec Exodus
If Troy Carter were to leave, he'd be joining a growing list of Spotify executives exiting in the last few months.
Those leaving include George Ergatoudis, former UK division’s head of content programming; Tuma Basa, the man behind RapCavier and ex-head of hip-hop global programming; PR chief Angela Watts; Dave Rocco, global head of artist and label marketing and Mark Williamson, former global head of artist and industry partnerships.
