Grammy Award-winner Celine Dion is distancing herself and her music from R. Kelly.

The song reached number one in America and several other countries.

Celine has decided to pull the track in the wake of mounting calls for the music industry to "Mute R. Kelly". 

The #MuteRKelly movement was founded in 2017 following years of sexual abuse allegations levelled against the R&B star.

It calls for radio stations and streaming services to ban his music. 

The movement has gained more traction following the release of the shocking 'Surviving R. Kelly' documentary.

Several women detail how the singer sexually abused them in the docuseries. It also looks at R. Kelly's relationship with singer Aaliyah, whom he secretly married when she was just 15. 

Celine Dion is not the only celebrity taking a stand. 

Chance the Rapper, who collaborated with R. Kelly on 2015's 'Summer in Paradise', has also pulled the song from streaming platforms.

Lady Gaga has also done the same with their 2013 collaboration, 'Do What U Want'.
