GetAtMe Blogram Is Drake outgrowing HipHop (and is that a bad thing...)?  #ItsABoutTheMusic | GetAtMe | Scoop.it

In the last year (and motivated by The WeekNd's success...) Drake's music has decidedly has a more Hip Pop feel (and that's not a bad problem to have...), so is Drake outgrowing hiphop?  Is Drake transitioning to the Hip Pop world with the Justin Timberlakes, Rihannas and Katy Perrys?  Will Drake soon be in movies( cant you see Drake as an AVENGER or in the next FAST AND FURIOUS), growing into his true role as an entertainer. Is Drake bigger than (or does he even want to be bigger than) beefing with Meek Mill?  We all know he is and it going to be interesting watching his transition.

GetAtMe HotNewHits -  Kent Jones DONT MIND takes the top slot with a score of 66.2 pts... #ItsAboutTheMusic

GetAtMe HotNewHits -  Kent Jones DONT MIND takes the top slot with a score of 66.2 pts... #ItsAboutTheMusic | GetAtMe | Scoop.it

Okay here’s this week’s GetAtMe HotNewHits.  These are cut that we handicap to be the next hits.  We score them by the track, demographic, market potential, the song and the hitfactor.  We add all the different scores to get our score.  Here’s the stats:

  • Kent Jones DON’T MIND 66.2 score grade B    This cut has had the great fortune of good timing (its in a great mix set area…).  After WORK by Rihanna and ONE DANCE by Drake, this cut was set up to win with a pop/dancehall style (great records for the summer pool parties and cookouts…).  This song scored highest in the track category (15 pts out of 20 pts) and the hitfactor (15.2).  Like I said the timing on this cut was key... #Hot
  • Drake TOO GOOD ft Rihanna 65.1 score grade B.   This cut is so hot but it seems to be some confusion at the label.  It seems that they are really trying to drive CONTROLLA (you might win a segment of the djs with CONTROLLA but TOO GOOD with Rihanna is a gimmie with the girls and last time I checked Drake’s core buyers are women #IJS).  This is a great song and it would be a shame to lose it in a clutter of new Drake cuts.  It seems that Drake has outgrown hiphop and hip pop is a comfortable place for him (maybe he just like diss records and beefs in the hiphop genre #lsmh).  Drake is gonna be massive in the hippop area.  Hopefully that will be his choice.  This song scored highest in the track (14pts), song (14pts) and The Hitfactor (15.1 pts).  Drake has a solid cut here (like I said with Rihanna this should be a gimmie…).
  • Alicia Keys IN COMMON 53.7pts score grade C This cut should be a smash.  The only thing that’s gonna hurt this cut will be the licensing folks and marketing people playing territory games (so if it flops Alicia, you’ll know why).  This cut could definitely blow up due to covers on youtube, covers on vine, dj mashups and remixes.  The marketing companies at times play territory games and the licensing people are just on some some really out of the loop next universe thing when it comes to online fans.  Here’s the real issue 1. Many of the fans are better at creating viral content than the pros that the labels hire and they have the army of followers (not fake followers and reviewer like many of the marketing companies employ.  Here’s a note, the fans know that the threads and review sites are bought and really don’t pay” the for pay for play trolls” any attention.  The fans have their own ideas and opinions #frfr).  Also the fans do it out of respect whereas the professional fans do it for a check #NotTheSameLove.  If the label would get the licensing groups off of youtube with licensing strikes, the fans would do covers and their fans and friends will become engaged with the new songs and they would viral (so by telling the fans, “hey don’t do covers and mashup because we feel you’re making a little money with youtube (and I do mean little), you honestly think that that’s gonna inspire fan engagement and fan loyalty.  Is it really gonna encourage fan to buy (would you if as a fan someone pissed you off)?  Let them get the youtube money and I guarantee it, they’ll have no problem skinning down $1.29 for your new cut.  This is a great song and for no reason should this song fail.  Djs are gonna love remixing this cut (a real key metric in breaking todays cuts are how many djs are making remixes for the cut (these guys don’t want the professional remixes, they want their own mixes or one of their peers (#IJS).  This song scored highest in the track (13pts) and the song (12pts).  This should be smash for Ms. Keys.  It really should..

That’s this week’s GetAtMe HotNewHits.  Our top cut this week is Kent Jones DON’T MIND.

GetAtMe Itunes TopSellers Drake's ONE DANCE is #1... #ItsAboutTheMusic

GetAtMe Itunes TopSellers Drake's ONE DANCE is #1... #ItsAboutTheMusic | GetAtMe | Scoop.it

You know for a while we we’re trying to decide where we wanted GetAtMe to go (and believe me it’s been a process).  So we decided that our relationship with the djs and fans outweighed industry politics.  I was slow to post numbers in the top 100 because industry folks were dumping stream numbers on itunes in an attempt to game the system (that’s an itunes problem not mine).  I came to the conclusion that fans and djs are smart enough (and I saw…) to decipher the info so it’s time to continue.

Like I’ve said before, GetAtMe is a handicapping function to inform Djs on hot new tracks and to inform engaged fans on new and exciting music.  No industry games just info.

This week Drake’s ONE DANCE is at num 1 with over 22,000 downloads a day followed by Desiigner’s PANDA.  Fifth Harmony’s WORK FROM HOME stays in the top 5 (mostly driven by youtube views) and Beyonce’s SORRY is at num 4.  FloRida’s MY HOUSE is num 5 (driven by arena play in the NBA playoffs…). 

Other spotlights are The GhostTown Djs MY BOO’s resurgence with over 4000 downloads a day.  Drake has 3 cuts in the top 10, ONE DANCE, TOO GOOD and CONTROLLA (all GetAtMe handicapped).

That’s this week’s GetAtMe Itunes TopSellers.

Okay here’s our GetAtMe Top Ten in HipHop sales for the week of 5/9/2016Drake’s ONE DANCE is #1.

  • Drake’s ONE DANCE takes num1 with over 20,000 downloads daily (this dudes on a roll…) and Desiigner’s PANDA stays at num2 (this cut is legit…)

  • At num 7 is Beyonce again with SORRY (had the most spin increases in urban radio this week with over 700 spins…) and at num 8 is Drake’s new cut TOO GOOD (another smash…)
  • Rihanna’s NEEDED ME is num 10 (on her way back to the top…) and Beyonce rounds out the top 10 with 6INCH (ft The WeeKNd…)

That’s this weeks GetAtMe TopTen HipHop Sales.  It seems that Beyonce drove everyones numbers up to a total 110,275 from 46,782 (a gain in 63,993 in increased sale average in the top 10).  Prince’s death, Beyonce’s and Drake’s album releases ran the charts up.

Ok on this GetAtMeInDaMixxx 0018 COME ON OVER, we did like a quiet storm groove mix with some of today top cuts.  Here’s the stats:

  • Kent Jones DONT MIND 98.6 is a hot new cut that moving up quickly (the “you be telling me this break is hot…”). Its momentum carried it straight to the top with a score of 98.6 pts (out of 100 pts)… #ItsAHit grade A+
  • Drake CONTROLLA 95.2 is a street and dj favorite. Urban radio mixshows are really on this cut and the streets are buzzin… #DjAlert grade A+
  • Rihanna NEEDED ME 93.2 is following right behind WORK. This cut is carrying such a strong female demo… #TheladiesAnthem grade A
  • DVSN DEEP 65.7 Drake’s supergroup is still buzzin online and DEEP is a strong mixtape cut RNB/HipHop… #HeresAnotherOne grade B

  • Rayven Justice BETWEEN YOUR THIGHS 55.6 Rayven Justice was an online find but this song is for real… #GoldenOpportunity grade C+
  • Big Bank Black 4LIFE 51.6 I have always liked this rapper (he is the truth) from when I first heard him on a cut MISSING with Future. His story telling and lyrics are above par for a trap rapper.  He has legit pen skills.  This cut shows that (he writes like it’s in a trap diary… #GottaHear grade C
  • Marq Dean FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS 45.1 Marq Dean is making moves with HipHouse but made this track for the mixtape crowd to show his versatility.   This sexy phone sex track is different… #FWB grade C

GetAtMe Break It Down Rihanna Needed Me "Didn't they tell you I was a savage..." #NeededMe #ItsAboutTheMusic

GetAtMe Break It Down Rihanna Needed Me "Didn't they tell you I was a savage..." #NeededMe #ItsAboutTheMusic | GetAtMe | Scoop.it

Rihanna is the epitome of the “bad girl in control” (that’s sorta what makes her sexy…) and these lyrics from her new single NEEDED ME exemplifies this.  She said volumes in these bars.

“Don’t get it twisted, you were just another n*gga on a hitlist, trying to fix the issues of a bad b*tch.  Didn’t they tell you I was a savage...?”  (#LSMH, unapologetically bad…).  It seems that Rihanna want to clearly let it be known, that no one owns her and she’s never gonna be the victim and all who wish to be (or already is) involved need to remember that… #Lovett

http://www.hulkshare.com/reginaldshipman/getatme-hotnewhits-4-14-2016-ft-drake-onedance

 

Okay here’s this week’s GetAtMe HotNewHits for 4/16/2016.

  • Drake ONE DANCE leads the mix this week (yes it’s another hit…) and this is a great dance/goove cut for Drake. At 104bpms (great mix area right now…) this cuts is gonna ride through the spring into the summer.  This song scored highest in THE TRACK area (15pts out of 20 pts) and THE HITFACTOR (15.3 pts).  This songs TOTAL 61.8 pts GRADE B.
  • Fat Joe & Remy Ma ALL THE WAY UP.  This cut is one of those classic New York joints (Remy Ma on LHHNY really gave this song some awareness).  At 88bpms this is a solid track for the mixtapes.  This cut scored highest with THE SONG (13pts) and THE TRACK (12 pts).  If this cut is still around in the fall, HBCU parties are gonna rock this one… TOTAL 53.6 GRADE C.
  • PartyNextDoor COME AND SEE ME. This artist here has some great cuts but for some reason, he doesn’t get any sales traction.  This cut here should be a winner for him (if the females show up…).  The bpms on this cut is 85 bpms so this cut should easily be a cut played in the  hookah joints.  It scored highest with THE SONG (14 pts) and THE TRACK (11pts).  I might be a little early on this cut but if this cut is promoted correctly (to the females…) then this on could be a huge winner.  TOTAL 48.6 pts GRADE C.

That’s this week’s GetAtMe HotNewHits.

GetAtMe MiniMixxx ft Drake TOO GOOD and Kyla DO YOU MIND... Drake just keep's em coming... #ItsAboutTheMusic | GetAtMe | Scoop.it

Let me be clear, Drake is on a roll.  From HOTLINE BLING to ONE DANCE and now this TOO GOOD (this thing here is smokin’…).  I really enjoyed putting this mix together (this mix would go so hot in the club #FRFR).

  • Drake TOO GOOD 126.3 pts (out off a 100+ points) As you can by this score I like this cut.  This cut scored so high because it’s already trending and in motion.  This cut is so dj friendly it’s crazy.  Drake’s music is becoming so worldwide dj friendly… grade A+++
  • Kyla DO YOU MIND 96.7 pts. Why this cut isn’t already a mass pop success, I don’t know (this cut is an underground dance favorite…).  Drake sampled this cut on ONE DANCE and now it’s like the cut is getting a well deserved 2nd  Kyla has one of those hit pop tones that’s great for churban radio.  Dance djs are gonna have fun with this… grade A+.

Like I said I loved doing this mix.  This is a kind of mix that inspires you while you’re mixing it.  The energy is crazy.  Enjoy

GetAtMe Are Rihanna and Drake HIP HOP'S new royalty...?  #ItsAboutTheMusic

GetAtMe Are Rihanna and Drake HIP HOP'S new royalty...?  #ItsAboutTheMusic | GetAtMe | Scoop.it

There are 2 artist now that we know definitely will sell.  Rihanna and Drake.  It’s proven.  Drake and Rihanna sell like no other artist at this time (I mean #frfr no one).  BITCH BETTER HAVE MY MONEY, BACK TO BACK, HOTLINE BLING, WORK, ONE DANCE and now NEEDED ME.   All these songs in common, huge sales number.  Not only are these songs popular but they are selling in huge numbers (really huge numbers…).  These two artists constantly have back to back hits.  Are Rihanna and Drake the new hiphop royalty?  If sales numbers are the indicator, then yes.

What is it about these two that they have now become the voice for their generation (and pockets)?  Is it just the music?  Is it just they’re style?  Is it a combination of both?  I think it’s all three.  Rihanna and Drake both have that streak of star rebellioness that helps a new generation define its voice. They both know what to say and when to say it (that’s something that stars do to both define and lead in its fans lane and voice…).

You see it takes more than THE MACHINE to develop a star and a star’s movement (contrary to beliefs of some of today’s PR idolmaker’s ideas…).  It also takes the star’s ability to connect and speak to their fans in their fans voice and space at the right moment.  Elvis did it, the Beatles did it, Michael Jackson did it and so did Prince.  It seems that Rihanna and Drake have the ability to do this on autopilot.

This is GetAtMe and remember…
