Hey guys... I'm just curious about, why Google Music censored my music?!

I bought Marvin's Room from Drake, for example, on Musicload (a German site for legal music download, powered by T-Mobile) uncensored.

Today I decided to upload my music into Google play for easy access...

Just tuned into it and it's censored now... no dirty words... is it normal that Google Music do this?

It's probably this 'match' feature which, rather than you having to upload your copy, adds songs from Google's server to your Google Music user space. It's probably taken the clean version instead of the explicit one. Try putting 'Explicit version' on your and see what happens as both are available on Google Music

The one was called explicit version... Confusing... I'm going to delete them if it's possible... I rather put them on my sdcard than fighting for dirty words :P

This is ridiculous haha. I'd noticed it with a few songs having the odd word censored or changed, which I thought was annoying but tolerable.

Then I just tried to listen to Benoit & Sergio - Walk & Talk. All of the lyrics have been replaced with a humming, presumably because it's drug references.

Who knew Google were so puritan?

Where do you live? I believe Google is testing the Match service in Europe. Check your labs settings on desktop version of Google music as well. I would figure it would default to clean versions and a setting to switch to explicit
