Azealia Banks Claims She Had RuPaul's 'American' Album Removed from Spotify With Plagiarism Claim

rapper Azealia Banks claimed that drag star and reality show host RuPaul “ripped off” her song “The Big Big Beat” with his own song “Call Me Mother,” and said that her claims led to the removal of RuPaul’s entire American album from Spotify. As of Saturday (June 2), American is no longer available to stream on Spotify, while it remains available on iTunes, Apple Music, TIDAL and Pandora. It is Spotify's policy to remove any record from their platform when it is under investigation.
