Their songs contain words that are too tendentious ………

The songs targeted are Love Me Harder for Ariana Grande and Shape of You for Ed Sheeran, which would contain lyrics that could be perceived as “identifying women as sexual objects”.

The British singer has not commented on this information yet. He will certainly have this ban in mind when he will go on stage in Jakarta, the capital of Indonesia, May 3.
