Back in November, Danish pop group Lukas Graham recorded a pair of stripped-down studio tracks at Spotify's Swedish headquarters: their 2018 single "Love Someone" and a cover of XXXTentacion's "Sad!" On Friday, those sessions went live and, unsurprisingly, the latter received some criticism. On Wednesday (Jan. 30), Lukas Graham took to Instagram to announce that the XXXTentacion cover had been scrubbed from Spotify.
"Our cover of SAD will be taken down ASAP," frontman Lukas Forchhammer wrote. "I had no knowledge of his violent history. I’m very sorry for the pain I’ve caused. Again, I’m very sorry."
