Universal Music Group (UMG) has announced that it will remove its entire music catalog from TikTok when its contract with the platform expires on January 31.

UMG accuses TikTok of not paying fair value for the music and of failing to address issues such as copyright infringement, hate speech, and harassment.

The company is also concerned about TikTok’s stance on artificial intelligence (AI) and its potential impact on artists.

UMG’s decision to pull its catalog will affect all music distributed and administered by its recorded-music division as well as Universal Music Publishing Group.

Some of the company’s biggest stars are Taylor Swift, BTS, Drake, Ariana Grande, The Weeknd, Lady Gaga, Lana Del Rey, Billie Eilish, Eminem, Nicki Minaj, Justin Bieber and Post Malone.
