Meghan and Harry rethink Spotify deal after Obama toppled streaming giant | Royal | News

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry signed a lucrative deal with the broadcasting giant to host and produce podcasts, valued at around US$25m (£18m), in late 2020. But the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are ‘rethinking’ the deal, royal expert Neil claimed Sean because of Michelle and Barack Obama. The former US president and first lady moved their podcast to Amazon-owned Audible from Spotify.

Speaking on his YouTube channel, Sean claimed: “Harry and Meghan are rethinking where they are going with their podcasts and shows.

“We know they were a little upset about Spotify’s association with comedian Joe Rogan.

“But could the image be of them looking for an entirely new deal?

“It’s going to be hard to leave Spotify now because they haven’t really delivered anything.

“But going forward, there are always bigger deals on the table and for Harry and Meghan they look to Michelle and Barack Obama as their role models.

“The kind of people they would like to follow in their footsteps.

“They see them as a very successful brand that is admired all over the world.”

He added: “This could be the path Harry and Meghan want to take. They are already looking to them for inspiration and ideas.”

Meghan and Harry’s charity Archwell said they had been expressing concerns to Spotify about the issue since the charity’s inception, and continue to do so “to ensure changes are made to its platform to help address this public health crisis”.

A number of artists have abandoned the platform due to controversial content such as the Joe Rogan Experience podcast, which is known for its skeptical views on vaccines.

An Archewell spokesperson said the couple are “committed to continuing” their work with the streaming platform.

“Hundreds of millions of people are affected by the massive damage of pervasive disinformation and disinformation every day,” the spokesperson said.
