Vince Valholla releases “Don’t Stop, Part 1” the second evolving single from his rotating collective, Vince & The Valholla Empire

Music producer Vince Valholla’s second evolving single via his rotating collective, Vince & The Valholla Empire is out today, titled “Don’t Stop, Part One”, produced by Vince Valholla, James Koo, and AyeeJB (1/3 of the production team, The Track Burnaz).

“There are so many great songs stuck on a hard drive because of different reasons. With streaming, that shouldn’t be the case, in my opinion. So if I believe in a song, I’ll be putting it out. As an idea, a fully produced instrumental… in whatever form that I believe could inspire someone to add to, that’s my goal, to have the music out. For Don’t Stop, Part 1 is an instrumental, and instead of building the song behind closed doors, I’ll be opening up the process to the public. I want to collaborate with artists on this song. I might have Part 2 as a rap song with two featured artists and Part 3 as an R&B song. Who knows?

If you hear this song, and you think someone could bring this track to a new level, send it to them.” – Vince Valholla

“Don’t Stop, Pt. 1” is out now on Valholla Records.

“Move” by Taemin named one of the 100 Greatest Songs in the History of Korean Pop Music by Rolling Stone

Rolling Stone unveiled their top 100 greatest songs in the history of Korean Pop music and within the list includes a song composed and produced by two collaborators of the Vince & The Valholla Empire release, “FOREVER”.

“Move”, the 2017 release from South Korean singer Taemin which was featured on the album of the same name landed at number 86 on the list. Composed and produced by Curtis Richardson, Adien Lewis and Angélique Cinélu, the song has been praised for its pop-R&B style and unnerving seductiveness.

Curtis Richardson and Adien Lewis collaborated with Vince Valholla for the 90s inspired R&B single “FOREVER” (ADN Lewis also performed the song) which is available now on Valholla Records.

“Move” has also be placed on lists from Billboard, Dazed, Idolator, and Melon.

Yes, the existing streaming model is a huge part of the problem

Last week I posted a video on TikTok and Instagram that got some pushback. It was in connection to the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strike that’s been going on for the past week. I concluded that one of the main issues currently happening in Hollywood is the streaming model, and I suggested we go back to an ad model to ensure actors and writers received royalties and better pay.

Whew, this got a lot of push back (see video below). For starters, I’m not sure why people think I’m not on the side of writers and actors but I’m making an attempt to correlate issues with a possible solution. Also, in the video, I said that the only streaming service that’s profitable was Zeus, but according to IndieWire Hulu and Netflix are the only major streaming services that were. They also suspect that other smaller streaming services are profitable but it’s unknown because of these private companies don’t reveal this kind of information often.

This sounds like music streaming. The costs to license and maintain these platforms are high and as a business, you could understand why royalties would decrease under this model while still being on the side of actors and writers. Back before streaming, a movie was released in theaters, then to second run theaters then it went to home video. After all that, movies are licensed to pay television networks like HBO and Showtime. Then at the end of the movie’s cycle, which could be years later, the film ends up on a basic cable network and or network TV. While all of this happens, people also get to rent these titles at stores like Blockbuster. Streaming broke this cycle completely.

One of the demands made by WGA and SAG-AFTRA are an increase in pay and residuals. An overwhelming amount of people think greed is causing this shortfall in pay but two things can be true at the same time. I believe the streaming model as we know it has to change in order to compensate for streamings limitations. If anyone thinks this can happen from subscribers alone are ignoring the fact that there isn’t much profit, if any, that is coming from the model people expect to draw from. Again, I’m all for people getting an increase in pay, but I think writers and actors should also demand multi-tiered models for all streamers to ensure that the business they work in can operate profitably and, so all writers and actors can earn a living wage. Pay the writers and actors but also, fix the streaming model.

Adam Dollar$ is back with the third installment of his Boomerang series

Baton Rouge based Adam Dollar$ just released Boomerang 3.0, which serves at the 3rd installment of his series starting from the 2019 release, ‘It Comes With a Price.’ Here’s Adam’s breakdown of the single.

“Boomerang 3.0 is the continuation of the series of records describing the platonic relationship between a man and woman who deep down are really in love with each other. The feelings always circle back around. The curveball is Boomerang 3.0 is the same concept but different playing field. The last couple of years being privileged to have a opportunity to work in film, the love for music never leaves, and this record is a perfect example in my return to music off hiatus.” – Adam Dollar$
