TikTok Condemns Universal Music Group’s Greed in Music Removal Dispute

TikTok calls out Universal Music Group for greed in music removal dispute.
Words by Lilly Snider

In response to Universal Music Group’s announcement to remove their artist’s music from the platform, TikTok has issued a sharp rebuke, expressing disappointment in UMG’s actions. Universal Music Group had cited a lack of compensation for artists and songwriters as the reason behind their decision.

TikTok, however, fired back with strong words, accusing Universal Music Group of prioritizing their own greed over the well-being of their artists and songwriters. The popular social media platform expressed sadness at UMG’s choice and labeled it as “sad and disappointing.”

Refuting Universal’s narrative, TikTok stated that their platform had provided powerful support and acted as a true promotional and discovery vehicle for UMG’s talent. TikTok emphasized that they had successfully reached artist-first agreements with every other label and publisher, highlighting the disparity in Universal’s actions.


TikTok’s response made it clear that they believed Universal’s actions were self-serving and not in the best interests of artists, songwriters, and fans. The dispute between TikTok and Universal Music Group raises questions about fair compensation for artists in the digital age and the evolving dynamics between platforms and major music labels.
