Don Toliver and Atlantic Records have denied using bots to boost stats on the song, “Do It Right.” In statements provided to TMZ, reps for both parties shot down the rumors.
“Just like other artists and their teams who have been attacked with botting reports, we are both deeply upset and concerned,” a rep Toliver told the outlet. “To be absolutely clear, neither Don or anyone on his team has had any involvement here.”
They continued: “While we conduct our own investigation into the allegations, we urge Atlantic Records to do the same — to protect the integrity of not only their roster of artists but their reporting metrics. We look forward to sharing more as we obtain more information.”
Atlantic Records additionally told TMZ that the company has “never used bots for any of our artists.”
