I have songs in my Music app that are marked as 'explicit'.

Is there a way to copy this 'explicit'/'E' symbol so I can use it somewhere else?

explicit explicit second

  • If only I can show you a photo, okay so you k ow when you are listening to a song right? And the song is explicit, has curse words. So itunes adds an explicit tag next to the song title. – Felix Joel May 28 '15 at 7:42
  • I need a way to copy and paste the "E" next to the title. – Felix Joel May 28 '15 at 7:42
  • @CousinCocaine I need it in text every time I try to add it into the song title for my other music app it just says "explicit small" – Felix Joel May 28 '15 at 8:22
  • It is not text. It is a PNG. – CousinCocaine May 28 '15 at 8:23
  • Do you see the other picture @CousinCocaine – Felix Joel May 28 '15 at 8:51

He is probably looking for the following unicode character : ️Negative Squared Latin Capital Letter E

The letter : 🅴

NB: The letter is not visible on my Windows. My iPhone displays it.

  • Yes! Of course! But how am I able to copy it in text? – Felix Joel May 28 '15 at 9:01
  • You can't copy it from the app. But you can do it from here :) – Matthieu Riegler May 28 '15 at 9:03
  • Sorry but from where? – Felix Joel May 28 '15 at 9:14
  • I am on a phone – Felix Joel May 28 '15 at 9:15
  • You can also get it from Character Table on your Mac. Press ++Space and search for "Negative Squared" -> You'll get more squared symbols there. – Mateusz Szlosek May 28 '15 at 9:15

The 'E' is not text, it is artwork.

iTunes on your Mac has the same artwork. This artwork is located within the iTunes app. This is how you can find it:

  • Go to /Applications
  • Right click 'iTunes' and select 'Show Package Contents'
  • Now go to 'Contents' -> 'Resources' -> 'English' (or any other installed language)
  • In here you will find the artwork in png format. The 'ViewLineItemRatingE' is the one you are looking for. The @2x suffix means that it is double the resolution and is meant for retina displays.

explicit small

explicit large

Note: I do not know about copy rights on this artwork. This might differ between countries as well.

  • jynx, jynx, jynx. can't argue with right though. Moving forward, If you can't find something similar in the comprehensive unicode-table.com I'll eat my 🎩 – ProductionValues May 28 '15 at 17:47
