Jamila Thomas and Brianna Agyemang also started the initiative, originally titled #TheShowMustBePaused, to hold the music industry accountable for profiting off of Black art and demand that they work to better protect Black communities.

Users flooded Instagram and Twitter with simple black squares for "Blackout Tuesday", an online show of solidarity with the nationwide demonstrations against police brutality.

Sony Music, Atlantic Records, Capitol Music Group, Warner Records and Def Jam were among the labels vowing #TheShowMustBePaused, while Radiohead, Mumford & Sons and Peter Gabriel also shared their support on social media. "A plan of action will be announced".

The pair created the site and hashtag #theshowmustbepaused, which spread quickly throughout social media as people looked for a way to offer solidarity with nationwide and global protests. "Ppl need to see what's going on".

"To my fellow respected industry partners and execs", he wrote in a post on social media.
