Taggard and Pall reached unrivaled success in the 2016-2017 year, as their sound went less straight dance music, and more vocal pop with EDM elements. Though it has been only a year since the Chainsmokers revamped their sound with Closer, and Paris; they are now back at changing their sound.

According to Drew Taggart, they had always wanted to create a sound and message that resonates with the current status of culture and society. It was for this reason, that the duo released “Sad Boy” and “You Owe Me”, these songs take a very different turn from anything previously recorded. The songs are dark, more lyrical, and go for a less EDM sound. According to Taggart, this sound is their reaction to the status of culture and sentiments inside of America and the world. The duo have a passionate belief that music is meant to symbolize society and people’s feelings; this new sound, though unpopular with some long time fans, marks their attempt to discuss and show the state of affairs inside of America.

Desiree Perez Presents a Hustlers Mentality

 

Jay-Z, in his early recordings, talks about this hustler mentality. This is how he started in the rap game. It has taken him quite far, and he knew that he would need someone else with the same hustler’s mentality to move Tidal to where it needed to be.

 

No one expected this company – with an African American leader – to be at the top of the game so soon. Music listeners are always in a place where they have more than one option. A premium service like Tidal didn’t seem like it would be a hit at first. It is like premium apps. People that have smart phones would not necessarily download a lot of premium apps if they can get similar apps for free that do the same thing.

 

That is the difference though. Perez has made people see that they cannot get the same thing with other music streaming services that they get with Tidal. What she has done is make people realize that the exclusive content can be worth the subscription price. This is a move that Jay-Z has always spoken about in his rhymes. He has made people see the value of serving up a product that would be unique. Jay-Z has also talked about the loyalty of those customers that he supplied products to. Dez Perez understands this, and they both seems to understand one another. That is what has made this music streaming service popular.

 

It is also good to have the money to make people take a look at what his company has to offer with classic albums. Prince, for example, was very close to Jay and Beyonce before he passed. Tidal has already given members access to some remastered Prince albums, and Jay-Z may have access to the Prince vault material at some point down the line. If this all comes down to the highest bidder Jay-Z and Beyonce may put up the highest amount to draw more people to Tidal. This is another way that he can keep himself on the island in music streaming. He can stand out from the rest and attract more people this way.

 

Desiree has been able to help him realize that this is the way to go. He could conform and copy what everyone else is doing. Jay-Z had other plans. He wanted to stand out and present music streaming in a different light.

The worlds greatest Michael Jackson impersonator: Sergio Cortes

Michael Jackson’s corporeal body may have passed from this earth, but his spirit certainly hasn’t left and likely never will. Especially not with fantastic MJ impersonators ut there like Sergo Cortes, the world’s greatest.

Cortes was born in Barcelona, where he kicked started his career in high school and was quickly noticed by a local television reporter. From there, he was invited to participate in various Michael Jackson impersonation contests and competitions. As popular as he was in high school though, it was nothing to compare with the first big leap he took, when he hosted a Michael Jackson tribute show that rocked that rocked Madrid. With so many of his fans supporting him and telling him not just how much he looked like MJ, but sounded like him, Cortes took his career further. He is now widely known throughout his current home; Brazil and his country of birh; Spain, as one of the worlds greatest impersonators of the Pop King.

Cortes is currently working on gaining international attention through the company he works with; Destiny Projects. So far, he’s been able to record and recreate all of Michael Jackson’s songs and has even recreated several of his most famous music videos with included choreography. With such an intense passion for his work, Cortes has already changed the lives of many previously mournful MJ fan’s and intends on changing even more lives.

You don’t just go out one day and decide you’re going to impersonate the true king of pop. It truly takes a lot of heart, courage and creativity to impersonate another artist, especially a legend with such immense talent like Michael Jackson. Not only do you have to truly want to spend your life imitating another person, you truly have to wish to merge your soul with theirs. Sergio Cortes really masters this and doesn’t leave a single nuance behind when he’s on stage. It’s as if he truly has harnessed the thriving soul of Michael Jackson and brought it back into this realm to inspire MJ fans everywhere and keep the MJ legacy going strong.
