GetAtMe iTunes TopSellers (daily Download averages) The WeekNd crushes em with "THE HILLS" over 22,000 today #Wow | GetAtMe | Scoop.it

Man what magic beans do The Weekend have #LSMH?  Every time this dude drops a single (with no radio, just online support and live performances) it’s like his sales just get larger and larger.  He dropped his new single “THE HILLS” and 22,000 downloads later he’s #1(now that’s how you do it).

A$AP Rocky also made a splash this week with 3 singles in the top 20 with his new cut (at the expense of Rita Ora) “ELECTRIC BODY’ debuting at #9.

5th Harmony’s “WORTH IT” continues to climb up the chart (now at #4, also another cut that has limited urban airplay).  Their manager and fans needs to get SupportBase of the year because these girls have quietly just kept at it and are closing in on #1.

Fetty Wap “TRAP QUEEN’ is still over 10,000 downloads a day (#IKnowRight)….

That’s this edition of the GetAtMe iTunes Top sellers

On this GetatMeInDaMixxx we start out a cut that stormed straight to the top of the iTunes chart The WeekNd “THE HILLS”(over 22,000 download in a day). Then we hear Rihanna “BBHMM’ (this one’s gonna ride into the summer). Then we hear the new Young Thug “CHECK” (another strip club anthem). We blend into the new Kendrick Lamar “KING KUNTA” (great premise on this cut “Are these hiphop generation the kids of Kunta Kinta #Wow). We then blend in to a new cut by Mark Ronson ft Mystikal “FEEL RIGHT” (great video #GottaSee). We wind it up with the new act Dizzle RED ft D-Roc (of the Yin Yang twins))

GetAtMe Urban Radio Scorecard for 5/27/2015 Rich Homie Quan "FLEX" is making moves........

GetAtMe Urban Radio Scorecard for 5/27/2015 Rich Homie Quan "FLEX" is making moves........ | GetAtMe | Scoop.it

 Okay here’s whats up with songs that were handicapped by GetAtMe this week.  Rich Homie Quan is making moves with “FLEX” (great song, hey dj’s speed it up from 84 BPMs to in the 90+ BPMs area.  The energy changes greatly).  RHQuan had a spin increase of +252 and hit the iTune top 100 in single sales in the 50’s (over 2000 download sales daily).  He’s been on the chart for the last month and a half quietly waiting Fetty Wap and TWayne (TrapQueen & NastyFreestyle) to lose steam.  Now it seem like the record has gotten legs (or Empire Dist got a sponsor hmmmmm in radio).

BLIND ITEM:  Has a certain power player in hiphop become the go between with Atlantic and Young Money, over YoungThug?  Hmmm.  And what happens when a certain hip hop artist (who may be back from jail in 45 days) comes back and wants to know what going on with his contract with a certain artist in this mix?   It’s going to be interesting…….

GetAtMe - GetAtMe3PcSnack ft Tink Million | GetAtMe | Scoop.it
Ok on this mix (man the hits keep coming in every day) we spotlight Tink and this new single MILLION (great new song 122BPM that puts you in the mind of Aaliyah’s ONE IN A MILLION, but Timbaland and Tink gave this version its own flavor). Next we have Trey Songz GOOD GIRLS VS BAD GIRLS (man this thing just set right in this mix #GreatSong Trey). The 3rd cut is Elijah Blake’s I JUST WANNA (great song with time it could really get some legs). That’s this edition of the GetAtMe3PcSnack ft Tink MILLION.

GetAtMe3PcSnack HotNewHits ft Young Thug, Jill Scott & Dizzle Red. Young Thug "CHECK" takes the top spot.....

GetAtMe3PcSnack HotNewHits ft Young Thug, Jill Scott & Dizzle Red.  Young Thug "CHECK" takes the top spot..... | GetAtMe | Scoop.it

Alright on tonight’s GetAtMe3PcSnack HotNewHits we had the chance to spotlight 3 great new cuts.  We started out with the new Young Thug “CHECK”.  (Young Thug continues to keep bringing cuts that’s getting great energy in the clubs. “CHECK” should be no exception.  111BPMs). Thug came out on top with a score of 50.9 (80pts as the top number). Next I had to slide this cut in because it was just nice to hear a new great song from her.  Jill Scott has dropped a new single “FOOLS GOLD” (Jill once again shows us her swag as a songstress.  Nice midday cut urban radio #DontSleep  89BPMs).  Coming in at #2 was Jill Scotts “FOOL’s GOLD” (great song) with a score of 43.8 (strong young adult record, not real a teen demo record and that cause her drop in score).  We wind it up with a new artist who dead set on bringing “twerkin” to the forefront of today’s trending topics.  Dizzle Red’s score was 38pt (which is great for a new indie #BigShotNation).  Lack of market identity (which he’s gaining momentum, over 20,000 plays on SoundCloud on “TWERK IT” in a week)   Dizzle Red “TWERK IT” ft D-Roc from Yin Yang Twins is one of those cuts that can resonate through the summer months ( Dizzle Red is already putting a twerk tour in the mix, so be on the lookout for it to hit your city.  140 BPMs).

That this week’s GetAtMe3PcSnack HotNewHits.  Remember, we here at GetAtMe “love the hit song..”

GetAtMe SingleMixxx Billie Jean ( #PYPB mix) "The kid is not my son........

GetAtMe SingleMixxx Billie Jean ( #PYPB mix) "The kid is not my son........ | GetAtMe | Scoop.it

Man when I first heard “BILLIE JEAN” off the Thriller album, I knew that intro break was special. I was a real Quincy Jones production groupie.  At One time Quincy had The Brother Johnson as the Rhythm section (#RIPLouisJohnson who died yesterday.  One of the best RNB Bassist of our time.  The bass solo on “STOMP” is a classic bass riff.) John Robinson was the drummer from RUFUS (who was a walking drum machine, what a cadence) SEAWIND was the horns, Greg Phillagaines on the Keys and 84 TOMTOM was on the strings (yes kids there was a time when it took a whole band to make a record #ThankGodForLinerNotes #LSMH).  Patty Austin handled background vocals, I mean this was a helluva crew.  So when Michael Jackson came out with Thriller with this assortment of “HITMEN” in his production camp, well it was sort of a gimme.

“BILLIE JEAN’ was a classic record about “love and responsibility”, but as Michael so profoundly stated, “the kid is not my son…….”  Michael we believed you and the dj’s of the world thanked you for bringing us this record that changed not only dance and music history but also DJ HISTORY.  That opening break on ‘BILLIE JEAN” was the breakbeat that took the breakbeat into pop culture (MOTOWN 50th Anniversary, moonwalk ect…)

I was really feeling bridging this record through a mix time wormhole (#LSMH, the trekkie is coming out in me).  I combined an EDM feel with a southern stripclub chant ( #PYPB ) and top it off with Michael as the dressing (#UmmmUmmmGood).  I hope you enjoy this mix as much as I enjoyed making it.

Man on this mix we're finally found out how were gonna do these weekly mixes. Now we're gonna take the top selling cut on iTunes and mix it other top trending new cuts (we were sort of doing that already but know I'm just letting you know the process of how we pick the lead song.) The WeekNd ?THE HILLS? went straight to the top of the itunes sales chart (over 20, 000 downloads a day. Somebody's buying #LSMH)…. Rihanna ?BBHMM? this record is probably the summer anthem (also still selling strong. It was just the right song for the mix……. Young Thug ?CHECK? No matter how you feel about Thug, this dude finds hits #FRFR. No doubt about that……. Kendrick Lamar ?KING KUNTA? Kendrick put together a really great and funky track with this one. Are today's hiphop fans the children of Kunta Kinte and has hiphop cut their legs off so they can't get off the plantation……? Mark Ronson ft Mystikal ?FEEL RIGHT? This is a great comeback record for Mystikal (I really hope this cut catch on because it's a great cut). I'm sure this will be jamming down on Bourban Street….. Dizzle RED ft D-Roc (of the Yin Yang Twins) ?RATTLESNAKE? This cut here brings us back to why Yin Yang worked. They just made some fun ass club songs that kept the girls dancing and twerkin. This cuts no exception. Dizzle RED has a sharp clever delivery and folks are on his team. #DjAlert #ThisOnesInTheMixxx That's this GetAtMeInDaMixxx #10 Call in (347) 826-7743

GetAtMe How Do Rappers Go broke?

GetAtMe How Do Rappers Go broke? | GetAtMe | Scoop.it

“How Do Rappers Go Broke…..”

The music game is a business that’s like a unicorn.  Even when you see what’s the truth, it’s hard to believe.  This business is part dream, part fantasy so at times lies look truths and truths look like lies but if you’re anywhere decent with math then this should make sense to you.

1st rappers go broke because they can’t wait to get involved in these RENT TO OWN FAME (sometimes360) deals with labels ( to be fair to the labels, these deals are bad because labels lose so much money developing acts and usually miss on 8 projects and hope to win on 2.  They pass the cost with winning projects by creating new expense situations on new or successful artist,  Now on the surface this might seem as some f*ckery but labels do have a responsibility to investors and have to create a sort mechanism to help get investor money’s back to them on projects that were loses .

2.  Rapper’s (and artist) tend to listen to people who are speculating how this business works (managers and artist love to go for the RAIN MADE GRIFT, they give a cat money and if it works dudes a rainmaker, if not, he’ll need more money.  The only way you beat this is know what you want and know your business) and sometime they just have no idea of the day to day working of a label.  These speculating middlemen have plenty of ideas and they really believe someone at the label is silly enough to give the half a mill for a few mp3.  #ComeONSon.  That’s not the real world #FRFR when it comes to money lending (and people who deal with label, especially indies, are usually HARD LENDERS, high risk/high interest lenders.  Remember the label manufacture nothing.  They upload the same mp3 you send them.

3.  Artist and rappers are creative and tend to not keep a firm hand on their expenses.  Label execs and industry middlemen are very astute in messing up money in the artist’s name.  Artists have to be real strong about their expenses situations so they won’t be broke on the back end.   I’m not saying these guys need to be Wharton Business School grads but they need to know what was spent, what was made and what’s really owed.

4.  Artists need to understand that you have to sell something for a profit to get paid.  Well this is a business that expenses become revenue streams (for some of these middlemen) that’s kept on the artist’s tab.  So artists have to be mindful of the tab if they want to know what was made on a specific project.  Usually #FRFR these artist managers are just so happy to be part of a winning situation in the music business and well they get caught up in the labels fairy dust (really some folks are just happy to attach their name to a label.  To keep it simple, make sure your selling something hint: download sales (#FRFR).  2, make sure your manager is not caught up or in over his head (the labels love to make the managers look like their stealing when really the managers were really out of the spending loop or were just incompetent).

At the end of the day you as an artist (and adult) you have to be responsible for your own pocket.  Remember that this is the music business and artists have to always be mindful of the business term.  It’s up to them not to get caught up in the hype and understand the value of your brand.  Know the business, be the business, that’s the business.

So to sum it up, if your folks spend $200,000.00 but you sell 5000 downloads on iTunes at $1.29, you’re way in the hole (remember the labels don’t get a whole dollar on a dollar sell.  iTunes get cut and the Label. You as an artist usually are the last ones to eat.  Yes you can make some money gigging but at the end of the day doesn’t it make more sense to upload one mp3 that sell over and over again.

If the label control how and who purchases your product then they will control the payout.  Then there is taxes and management, financial management, booking agent, publicist, publishing, producer ect.  Yo there are a lot of hands on that $1.29 when it gets purchased on iTunes.  It’s up to you to make sure you get your pockets right

GetAtMe congrates to Tink "MILLION" most added new music in urban radio this week..... #ThatsWhatUp | GetAtMe | Scoop.it

You know our motto here at GetAtMe is that “we love the hit song”.  Man I love handicapping good music (that’s what dj’s are supposed to have a passion for, picking hits).  Over the last year Tink has had so many good songs I’ve come across, I mean it’s crazy (go check her out on youtube, you’ll see).   So to hear that “MILLION” was most added this week in urban radio well that puts smile on my face.  I love it when a good song makes it through.  Tink and Timbaland did their thing on this cut by giving “MILLION” it’s own flavor.  I’m glad that the urban music programmers listened and felt this new cut and added it.

Tink “MILLION”, experience it on iTunes now and remember #RealFansBuy
