The music industry is taking a pause today (June 2) to observe an effort called #TheShowMustBePaused (or "Black Out Tuesday").
To participate, countless artists and music industry professionals have taken to social media to post black squares in solidarity with the ongoing protests for justice and an end to systemic racism, but Lil Nas X expressed concern over the initiative, noting that this is not the time to be muted, but to "push as hard as ever."
"i don’t think the movement has ever been this powerful. we don’t need to slow it down by posting nothing," he tweeted. "we need to spread info and be as loud as ever."
