Ozuna and Afro B Teaming Up For Latin Version of Afrowave Hit 'Drogba (Joanna)'

Ozuna and Afro B Teaming Up For Latin Version of Afrowave Hit 'Drogba (Joanna)' | New Music Industry | Scoop.it
Ozuna has teamed up with Afrobeat sensation Afro B for a bilingual Latin version of Afro B’s hit “Drogba (Joanna).”
Jarard Kenneth's curator insight, July 24, 9:59 PM
I had to save the best for last! Afro Dominican Reggaeton Artist Ozuna work with Afro British DJ Afro B for in better words a remix of Drogba, which was released in 2018. In reference to Drogba, Afro B, basically asked the character Joanna why is playing like the soccer/football player Didier Drogba. This is common in majority of salsa, bachata, and of course older reggaeton (or Spanish Reaggae for that matter), to mention the name of a woman. A perfect example of this the salsa hit by DLG entitled Juliana. Even American R&B, POP, and Soul utilizes this same approach (IE. Michael Jackson's Dirty Diana).

Overall this makes perfect sense for Ozuna make a Latin version of this song, be it that it is reminiscent of Panamanians make Latin or Spanish versions of popular Jamaican Reggae and Dancehall songs.

Stat Of The Week: 61% of Universal Music Group’s revenue comes from local artists | New Music Industry | Scoop.it
Why major music companies are thinking local like never before…
Robert Andrade's curator insight, July 26, 8:42 PM
I think that this totally makes sense. People love tings more when they feel their involved. I think touring and making appearances are important because of this reason. So people being more invested in their local artist makes sense. Their closer and feel like their a part of the artists life. This seems to be a good source of information. The author is names. The sources are linked. The date published and the credentials of the websites and writers are there. I think many people go to this website for information. It appears to. Be very reliable and has the data to back it up.

Taylor Swift Folklore made $1.2m in three days... from one Chinese DSP | New Music Industry | Scoop.it
Taylor Swift's new album 'Folklore' may have been a surprise release, but its popularity is entirely unsurprising: more than 1.3m sales in 24 hours.
Quamika Wyatt's curator insight, July 28, 2:31 PM
Marketing and popularity is a huge thing in the industry. I think she's a great artist but I also didn't hear about the album until they stated that she said something about Kanye West being a clown. With what Kanye is going through right now, there's a possibility that Taylor used West's name for clout and sales.

Elon Musk Neuralink Startup – Stream Music 'Directly Into Your Brain'

Elon Musk Neuralink Startup – Stream Music 'Directly Into Your Brain' | New Music Industry | Scoop.it
Elon Musk's Neuralink startup will allow users to stream music directly into their brain. Musk will reveal more information about the technology next month.
Nathan Elbert Dovel's curator insight, July 25, 11:47 AM
I included this article to be the pinnacle in the idea of Technology in the Audio Production/Music business. It sounds like sci-fi, yet here it is. Elon Musk as well, no surprise there as he is certainly a futurist. I think it was well written and thought-provoking. 




Though not recognized for any journalism awards or accolades, the credibility of this source seems viable to me using the evaluation guide. I would say this is a great resource for music-related news. 
Robert Andrade's curator insight, July 26, 8:12 PM
I think streaming music directly into your brain would be a hard thing to accept. I’m not saying it will never happen, but it’s definitely something to get used to. Honestly I’m not sure if this would help the music industry. It might raise the amount consumed but it just might make another difficult issue to be resolved when it comes to the streaming numbers and how to correctly pay the artists. The source seams very trust worthy. There’s many direct quotes and the writer of the articles is names and was their accusation is. It doesn’t take as side at all and just states facts and quotes from Musk himself. Id say that this might be something that music industry people would get good facts from but i guess it just depends on the person. Some people would just disregard this and some might see this as something to keep an eye on for the future.

These five hot Mzansi musos are just a few of the independent artists choosing not to be signed to a record label.
Jarard Kenneth's curator insight, July 24, 9:13 PM
I'm not surprised about this move for South Africa. Other areas like Nigeria are following suit as well. I have a close friend who is Nigerian, so he's tends to keep me in the know of what transpires musically in the motherland.

In all honesty, in a world full rules, regulations, and involuntary slavery (in reference to signing a portion of your life away), it's a breath of fresh air to see that many artists are taking the Chance The Rapper approach. They are able to create their buzz without some form of a machine backing them, like here in the USA.

This also allows artists to freely work with whomever, whenever, and that's the beauty of musical freedom.
