Default I think its time for..... (think time them)


crooners like Beres Hammond and Sanchez to get the proper recognition by
RnB lovers. Just imagine them doing a crossover hit or doing a duet wit
R Kelly, Avant, Ginuwine, ect. Why hasnt this happened?Im suprised
Sanchez hasnt been approached since he has done numerous remakes of RnB
hits

"We" don't need those soft-egg headed R&B artists watering down our
sounds."We're" bigger and better
without the commercialization my brother..

What im saying is that Dancehall artists are crossing over into the
mainstream music world. Why hasnt any record labels pursued Sanchez,
Beres Hammond, Richie Stephens, ect ect or at least an RnB artist try to
do a duet. Its like the Lovers Rock aspect of reggae is being
overlooked. And i honestly dont think that anything will be watered down
if put with the right producer and artist.

in the mid-90's, he signed a deal with a major, one single was released
(BORING, at best), nothing ever came out of it: the only good thing for JA
singers is when they get an advance from the majors they signed on, whch often
enabled them to set up their own label !!!
the style of the singers you mention mostly harkens back to the halcyon days of
US soul music and its great artists : most of the current generation are just
plain limited, be it vocally (**** those whohoo whoahhh clichés !), or
lyrically(some have the technique -see mariah carey, but no soul !!) but what
about the guts and the soul ????

beres had a crossover album in the mid-90's on Elektra : avoid at all cost
!!!!! that's a part of the answer. sanchez does a lot of covers but do the US
labels care a bout covers of their own artists' tunes ?? afraid not. even less
so when blokes from third-world countries happen to sing much better, or at
least with much more soul and gusto than most of the inflated overrated dudes
on the r& b scene !!!
anyway, most of the JA-US crossover collabs end up being an embarassment for
the US camp (just see the last Ele album where the rappers and that upcoming r&
b singer -i still wonder what is so special about him, really ??just doesn't
compare with Wayne Marshall, for instance- kill the vibes by cutting the
power).
the current attempts by the US majors and their artists to seduce JA artists
just reflects how lame mainstream US black music has become, by and large.
****** up to missy E , still, bcs her duet with Ele is good, and she doesn't
sound ridiculous !!!
for most majors, Yard artists are just the current commodities, a situation
even reinforced byt the fact that many yardie acts have now grown up to the
sounds of the US satellite channels.formatted stuff all way through.
frankly, coming back to singers, i don't see why they would sign on a major and
do duets with US singers they already surpass in quality, imo.besides, those
guys don't wear dreadlocks and don't look the Marley part, second reason not to
get signed.
third reason, PR and AR people in majors have no clue have to "market" such
artists properly, just check what happened to Luciano and Spanner Banner on
Island/universal (and SB's Chill is a great album with crossover potential,
still !).
meanwhile, in the rest of western world, each major is trying to create its
own army of little r& b clones, even less inspired, of course, than their
models (i'd make an exception for the UK, which happens to have brilliant r & b
singers -who also sometimes double as lovers' singers- no one will seriously
care about just bcs they aren't american).so goes the glittering world of bling
bling r& b (or is it R-soul ?) ; ))

Well (and this is only MY opinion), I don't think mainstream America's
musical tastes leads people to want to hear that kind of reggae. It stands
too far apart from what they are used to musically.

Dancehall, I think, has grown in popularity because it is entwined here with
rap/hip-hop. The radio stations that play it are usually hip-hop type
stations, and they've had an 'introduction' going on in the last few years
with reggae artists performing on a rap artist's release.

For lover's rock to be 'introduced' the same way, it would have to be played
on a 'soft rock' type radio station, and it is just too far apart musically
to really fit in.

But that is my take on things.

I disagree entirely with this call... there were some bonafide killers
on this album (In Control), and personally I rate it ahead of quite a
few others from him.

I Could Beat Myself on the Real Rock riddim, roots anthem Giving Thanks,
Another Day In The System, I Won't Surrender, We've Found It, Smile For
Me, No Crime (with Bunny Rugs & Capleton)... all top tunes.

you ought to give this one another chance mate, there is no crossover
biz watering down the above, they're just pure quality Beres tunes...

A few more years of Hip-Hop and R&B will be right next to the "BLT". they
seem to have more worries.

i wonder if we are talking about the same album ?????
maybe i don't remember correctly...anyway, i didn't get any promotion.
jack radics ' one was really bad, though, if we mention another JA artist with
soul inflections, Richie stephens 's attempt was bad too.
