Drake has reportedly cut his Michael Jackson demo from his live shows, following the release of Leaving Neverland.

A number of radio stations across the world have made the decision to stop playing Michael’s music after two men detailed alleged accounts of sexual abuse from the singer in the new documentary.

According to The Sun, Drake has removed his sample of Michael’s voice from his 2018 track ‘Don’t Matter To Me’, which the rapper used on his tour late last year.

The publication reported that the 32-year-old did not play the demo during his concert at Manchester Arena last night and doesn’t plan on using it in the future.

Michael’s nephew, Austin Brown previously said that he did not agree with Drake using Michael’s voice from the singer’s unreleased sample and told TMZ: “I just feel like, if he didn’t finish it, then you shouldn’t use it”.

Choreographer, Wade Robson and computer programmer, James Safechuck spoke out about the alleged acts of sexual abuse in the Channel 4 documentary which was released in the U.K. and Ireland last week.
