Okay here’s the GetAtMe Top3Picks Marketview for this week.
Elijah Blake I JUST WANNA
This one caught my attention by the amount of urban radio adds 2 weeks ago (I still haven’t had any itune sales indications on it though). This is a good song and our Marketview carried a rank of 44.7 (C)
Track: 4($$$$) nice groove and great hook…
Performance: 4 ($$$$) Elijah Blake is right on point with this cut….
Product Push: 3 ($$$) medium strong radio push and online info…….
Demand Pull: 2 ($$) waiting for sales from itunes to catch on…..
Hit factor 2.7 ($$.7) this song could catch (the hook and track rides)……
Tink RATCHET COMMANDMENTS
Tink is gonna happen (just come to terms with it yall). She can sing and has real bars. She has an online movement that’s growing. Tink with Timbaland’s guiding hand is gonna happen.
Track: 4($$$$) this track really comes off after you put it in the mix djs (Timbaland got down again)
Performance: 5($$$$$) Tink's singing is hot (great tone) and her bar’s were on point (that third verse gave her the 5, she blazed on the third versed).
Product Push: 2($$) too many key street djs haven’t been put up on this great record (especially since it’s a rework of the Lil Mo classic 10 COMMANDMENTS). Easy mix and the women like this track
Demand Pull: 1($) hopefully the sales will show up in the coming weeks...
Hit Factor: 2.7($$.7) Tink is the truth (her online support is for real) now let’s hope that support turns into itune sales
The Dream THAT’S MY SHIT
I like this cut (and evidently so do female demos). This song has the makings of being a big record.
Track: 4($$$$) really nice and catchy groove. The hook is strong…..
Performance: 4($$$$) The Dream brings this home……..
Product Push: 2($$) Seems like they went to radio 1st hoping it would leak to online (it’s the other way around guys)
Demand Pull: 2($$) this song could really catch (based on the hook alone. Got that ringtone appeal)…..
Circling the web is a new “he stole my track story” (or hook in this case, wait you can’t steal a hook….). Many are questioning whether Big Sean jacked the hook (IDFWU, really ya’ll, you can’t jack a hook. No there is no form PA or Form SR for hooks. Quit listening to your uncle Roger who works at the post office #FRFR).
First it was the Drake “he stole my song” now it’s Big Sean. For the record XO Muzik’s cut isn’t bad but really there’s probably no way her “IDFWU” would have had anywhere near the success of Big Sean’s record. For the life of me I have no idea why these folks feel like “If they hear me, they’ll see my vision….” I hate to be a party poop but that’s not how it works.
Actually #FRFR, if no one copies what you do, it’s probably not that good so you gotta let that go. Now what it seems like is that this aspiring new artist wanted her 3 paragraph of ink online and there, I got ya.
Folks remember, in this business (as in most) “big bank takes little bank” (I don’t care what your uncle Roger or his friend the injury attorney who side hustle is entertainment law) that’s how it is. One thing Big Bank can’t copy although is a kick ass live performance and a loyal and satisfied fan base. Now quit cryin and get to work.
Man I know yall must think I'm a Rihanna stalker (#LSMH) but I'm just feeling her #InTheMix right now. On this mix we mashup Timberland, Rihanna, J Lo, Pitbull, Missy Elliot, Brittney Spears, Justin Timberlake, Nelly Furtado and Pharrell in this very colorful minimix (man Timbaland's beats and Rihanna voice, even sped up, make such a great marriage #FRFR). Enjoy this (like I said) colorful collection of characters and blends on this GetAtMe MiniMixxx NowThatsAMixxx. #GetAtMe
Saturday night Lil Wayne’s tour bus was shot at as he was leaving the Compound (twice it was hit #SMH). At first I was slow to speak on this fearing some overzealous publicist was laying the foundation for the next Pac and Biggie Beef (I mean they are trying real hard with the Wayne and Thug beef). So I took a wait and see stance.
Well it did happen and Imma tell you, many of us out here writing really need to keep in mind how serious some folks take this rap stuff. I’m just hoping that this was some overzealous fan that security pissed off and this story was an isolated incident. I’m really hoping TMZ and other outlets are not pouring gas on this tiny fire hoping that it erupts in a story that drives views, clicks and ad revenue (I really hope this isn’t case).
Fortunately no one was hit or hurt (hmmmm), there was very little online back chatter (hmmmmm), and Cash Money/Young Money has been relatively quiet on this issue (hmmm).
I warned folks in an earlier blog that “I hope Wayne really ain’t listening to opportunistic MIDDLEMEN in this Cash Money money thing. Those middlemen have no idea how serious this can get (and really they don’t care, they just want some attention).
Lil Wayne hear me on this, A DEAD WANYE IS WORTH MILLIONS TO CASH MONEY LIKE PAC WAS TO DEATHROW. I’m not saying Cash Money threatened him (I really doubt that) but my statement is a very true statement (be mindful of that). There is probably some cat out there so thirsty to be seen, combined with bored online bloggers (TMZ) looking for a REDBALL story (hot story) that they will put in play a tragic incident that takes a away this father (REAL ISSUE) from his family and drives attention and revenue to online media outlets and Cash Money (and I really don’t believe CashMoney/Universal wants that either #AtLeastIHopeNot).
Well finally someone has taken #1 from Nicki Minaj (#FRFR), but she only dropped to #2 and maintained her number. Fetty Wap’s “TrapQueen” took number 1 based on very strong itunes sales (#5 on iTunes). The Weeknd “EarnedIt” maintained at #3 and Rae Sremmurd “ThrowSumMo” moved up to #4 from #5. Mark Ronson’s “UptownFunk” had growth from #9 to #5 based on strong radio support (this is a great song. Radio has finally caught up with the sales almost 5 months later). At #6 is Chris Brown’s “Ayo” (we knew this was a hit but it’s had some real ninja movement. It climbed real slowly, hmmmm…) and at #7 Ciara seems to have won the Future/Ciara song war coming in strong with not only radio support but also some itunes sales. Neyo’s “SheKnows” begins its descent from #2 to #8 (it seems like the itune sales went away overnight. At #9 JColes “Apparently” (due to strong radio support “IMeanRealStrong”) came in as a new listing and at #10 Big Sean holds onto a slot spot with “IDFWU”. Rihanna’s “BBHMM” is still moving up after leveling off at #31 on itunes and Rich Homie Quan’s “Flex” also remains on deck.
The ILoveMyPlug Dj’s are becoming the new street presence in Atlanta and the south. Dj KoolAde “The Father of the Stripclubs” and Dj KuttThroat (Dj for Young Jeezy) are now with the rest of the ILoveMyPlugDjs, creating a Thursday night listening session for new music seeking the plug from the ILoveMyPlugDjs.
This first one was hot and the turnout was great. Already the sense of a truly organic movement was in the air. For more info go to the ilovemyplug.com site and get info on you getting an invite to the next event. Come get plugged in.
