If you pay attention to today’s music on the radio, you will hear a wide range of tunes and beats. You even nowadays hear individuals singing over hip jump beats, and individuals rapping over r & b beats! The 2 categories are mixing a lot in today’s music. One of the mistakes that numerous underground rap artists make is, they are so worried about being exactly what they call “real” as in being gangsta or hard.
It appears like they are more concerned about being “real” then they means offering records and generating income. They utilize just beats that are tough and “gangsta” sounding. They talk about shooting and killing over these tough rap beats. It’s okay for them to do this if this is exactly what they want, but every song on the cd can’t be that way if they wish to be an effective multi-platinum selling artist. If you wish to get your music on the radio, and on BET or MTV, you need to have at least a couple of songs, that are more commercial.
A lot of artists don’t do this, and they lose out on a whole entire market of possible customers! The objective is to record the attention of these individuals with electronic media such as the radio and television, so that they will buy the cd. Once they purchase the album, they will certainly then have access to the rest of your different styles.
Keep This in Mind:
People in the streets will certainly burn your CD! Listeners from the Radio and T.V. will certainly buy your CD!
Which one do you believe will get you to Platinum Status Faster?
My artists are going to sell 200,000+ CD’s this year! How about you?
So the point is, if your objective is to catch as numerous offers as you can, then you have to make music that everyone can pay attention to. You can’t make music only for the streets. You need to make it for the streets, the club, the radio/tv, and for the vehicle. That way, you can get offers and cash from all those various markets, rather of simply from the streets. Today’s hit music has something in common: No matter how foolish it might sound, it is catchy. Do not believe me? Pay attention to Laffy Taffy! It might get awful scores from a lot of Hip-Hop Heads, but the ladies love it, and it sticks to you. Consider it: The number of times have you talked about it with somebody since the song came out? How many times have you paid attention to it when it began the radio just to see how silly it was?
