Pink Season is the second album released by Pink Guy, a comedy character created by artist Joji (George Miller). It consists of 35 rap, ukulele and electric tracks, all lyricised in the name of comedy, lasting only 90 minutes, but taking years to be produced. It's an independently released album, not attached to any record label, and the album is promoted by Joji's soundcloud, his second YouTube channel TooDamnFilthy, and is also listed on Spotify.
The album was released to Soundcloud, YouTube, Spotify and Facebook on the 4th of January 2017, and in that week, raised to Viral charts in 17 countries on Spotify, occupied 18 of the 50 viral slots on the UK Viral 50, was placed 76th on the Billboard 200, and accumulated multi-millions of hits on YouTube. The album was largely praised by Pink Guy's fanbase, and was given a positive review by YouTube music reviewer Anthony Fantano.
On the 18th of January 2017, Pink Season's song STFU edged out Ed Sheeran and many other mainstream artists to become #1 on Spotify's Global Viral 50, a huge achievement for an independently released album. Nine other albums also occupied places on the chart. It was hailed to be one of the best performing independently released albums in January 2017, and the fans of Pink Guy were ecstatic.
Pink Season's run continued, climbing from 76 to 70 on the Billboard 200 and 30 on the Hot 100 for the week of 28th January 2017. Fans were excited for how far up this album would be able to go. However, disaster struck short after.
Reports began coming in to /r/FilthyFrank regarding the disappearance of the album from Spotify on the 19th January 2017. Despite still being on people's playlists and the charts (then), the album was censored, removed from all of Spotify's search results, meaning fans could no longer find it when they searched, driving fans away from listening to it on Spotify. As a result of this, hits fell, and all of Pink Season disappeared from the Viral Charts. The album fell from #70 to #194 on the Billboard 200.
Fans are outraged at this censorship. Like Youtube has done for some of his work, Spotify has removed George Miller's work from their search results, driving fans away from his work, as they are unable to find what they are looking for. Spotify has killed the chart run of an independent album, deliberately and knowingly throwing it from 70th to 194th on the Top 200.
The request is simple. We want Pink Season reinstated to Spotify's search results, and uncensored so that fans of the album are able to access it. We are abhorred by their decision, and want them to revoke it.
