GetAtMe How is it that 2 of the best voices in the game aint signed?  Vanjess is it Talent vs The Industry?

GetAtMe How is it that 2 of the best voices in the game aint signed?  Vanjess is it Talent vs The Industry? | GetAtMe | Scoop.it

From the first time I viewed a Vanjess cover, I was like wow (it was a JCole cover and here’s the impact of their talent and performance., I remember Vanjess but the song slips my mind but it was a great performance…). Vanjess is positive. Vanjess is attractive. Vanjess is talented. Vanjess has a huge online following and loyal fans. So why hasn’t Vanjess been signed and where is that elusive hit hiding (These ladies and Dj Mustard are just waiting to happen..)?
It’s hard for me to imagine that folks who are viewing youtube covers are unaware of Vanjess (that’s like saying you don’t know Jessica Sanchez. #ThatsAnotherOnefolks). These ladies have amassed a large and loyal following on youtube as has other artist but is the youtube fame enough? Will it take you to touring on the major artist level. Is there a real difference to PENTATONIX( a huge youtube pop group) and VANJESS? It would seem that producers would be clamoring to at least feature these ladies (Jason Derulo “hey what’s up…” #SteadyDroppinHints).
Look their talent is without question (just check one of their videos if you doubt me) but what I’m curious about is, when did we become an industry that blatantly overlooks real talent (I mean you can’t miss it with these ladies…). I tell folks all the time, “the music industry isn’t about talent or fair, its about the deal that can be made (and at times the perceived leverage that the label wants…). Why isn’t Lyhor Cohen breaking his neck to sign these ladies. Hey Dame, these ladies could probably be your next meal ticket (and partner you’ll eat with these ladies #frfr). What Drake’s not looking for talent like this with this new super stable of artist he’s putting together and cosigning on the low ( It’s hard for me to believe Drake hasn’t seen these ladies. I mean can you imagine these ladies on a DVSN ‘Hallucination’ or ‘Too Deep’ track. I shudder at the thought #MassiveHit…).
It’s hard for me to believe that in the whole music industry and online that 2 of the best voices in the game aren’t even on the bench but sitting behind the bench 2 rows back (but whoever gets them, well it’ll be massive both in the success and financial category. These ladies have that ‘Whitney, Anita Baker, Donny Hathaway, Luther kind of talent. Are we no longer looking for that as music consumers (I’m not even questioning the industry, I asking about the fans). Look Vanjess is one hit away from real validation (so Vanjess get a hit that’s yours, not a cover. A real hit ‘yo’, not just a good track or song…) and their true fans are just a $1.29 from getting them there (that’s gotta be the cheapest KickStarter donation out there. #LetsStartAMovement #BuySomethingGreat). This is definitely gonna be a #GetAtMeIToldYa.
Check out Vanjess on youtube and follow them on twitter. You won’t be disappointed.

GetAtMe3PcSnack SongRatings 4/26 Elle Varner get the top spot with "SeeMeTonight"

GetAtMe3PcSnack SongRatings 4/26  Elle Varner get the top spot with "SeeMeTonight" | GetAtMe | Scoop.it

Last nights show was so laid back with our Ladies night.  We had Keyshia Cole, Elle Varner and Vanjess.  Elle Varner took the top spot with a 15.6 ranking (top rank 20pts).  This is a cool song (the beats is a beast).  Her performance was great (as usual) and the song itself was cool.  The buzz score on this song will be  based on where we can get the song entered into the market.  It wont be a street song, unless it get a strong online buzz (2 pts), the mixtape crowd will be respectful but it will have to prove itself (2pts).  Club jocks will like this song if it get a dance mix with a hot 16 bar intro (2pts) and Radio will take to this cut if the other 3 fall in line (2pts.)  This is a great song but its artsiness may make it hard to enter the 4 corner (street, mixtapes, clubs and radio) in a timely fashion.

We're going into the 2nd month of the second quarter and summer is coming and radio will be looking for songs that are very event oriented and that can help them sell events (be mindful).  This is a great song and we hope Elle Varner's people have developed the entry strategy for this great song  to enter the market..

Vanjess came in second with their indy cut "Killer Lover" 14.0 pts (also a very artsey cut) and Keyshia Cole had a rank of 13.3 pts for her cut "NextTime".

That's every Wednesday & Sunday night at 11PM on blogtalkradio.com/getatmenow
