Who gives a fu*k if it sells a bunch of copies as long as the music is good?
Are you serious? Who's gonna pour money into projects and not get theirs in return? If Adele flopped you think they would market her fat a.ss? Let's have big boy talk for a second and let's come back from Disneyworld. If black soul singers want to sell soul music, go the independent route. Once they're able to pick up steam and a fanbase, a major will come along ready to suck them off to sign. That simple. In a market like this where people are pirating music labels are not going to put out just anyone's sh*t.

I been saying this for months. Adele can sing but she aint got no soul. She dont have you feeling it like Maxwell, Eric Benet, Lenny Williams (everybody tries to sing Cause I Love You atleast once in their life), Whitney Houston, even Mary J in her prime made you feel it even if she was singing over faster beats.

drake the only guy making soul music right now you can really feel his pain when he sings GOAT

STFU right now really? Drake ain't even R&B period. The Dream is right R&B music. It's like all the real R&B has been shut out and now you have them calling these fake a.ss rapper/singers R&B.

The industry has k!lled R&B really because. Even the real R&B singers are making bubble gum pop music that's really outta their character but i guess that's what happens when you have to follow orders to stay relevant or keep living that famous life style.

Yeah that sh*t ain't soul. She just a white bi*ch who was blessed with a voice to sing and got these people out here calling that sh*t Soulful because obviously they didn't grow up in the era of real soul music.

They'll market whatever people will buy. A white soul singer is more interesting to see than a black soul singer because it's not common and hipsters love it. You didn't think labels tried marketing soul to blacks these days? It doesn't work. Blacks who listen to soul will find their soul music, and it probably won't be from Adele. Labels will market what sells. And black soul music does not sell. It does not sell. It just does not sell.
it doesn't because...marketing.. and manipulation. They don't want it to sell period. Black people love Anthony Hamilton btw

I didnt say sales represent quality. Artists & Execs are in it to make money, if they know nobody will buy it, they wont put it out

gtfoh the only white chick many money off of soul records is Adele. Amy is dead and no body knows who the fu*k Duffy is. i bet 99 percent of boxden don't even know who the fu*k she is. Adele has a unique voice that is all. Soul music is dead. ALL them other bi*ches can't sing thats why. WHo the fu*k wants to hear rihanna over a soul-type record. all that yodeling. make ya ears bleed
Winehouse never made any money of soul records? fu*k up toddler

n*gga lookin for some attention. in the past six months we got Jill Scott, Marsha Ambrosious, and Mary J. Blige. not to mention Kem and i think Anthony Hamilton is on the way

they thought gaga wouldn't sell... they have turned away plenty of artist that became successful.......

Public Enemy is a multi plat group... why won't they put isht like that out anymore?

Again they do not want smart consumers.. there is a market for everything.. if not a good business person can create it.. otherwise they have obviously set up a system of crappy music

dream seems mad as fu*k right now, he's always popping up with some complaining to do.
Maybe because the weeknd and drake stole his market?

I'm thinking he needs to stick to getting that producing/song writing money.

I somewhat agree with The Dream because it almost seem a rarity to hear just good soulful music on a larger scale than it has been for the past couple of years, artist either try to do some pop stuff or some rap hybrid foolishness instead of keeping true to the genre.
