The above may be a question the folks over at Roc Nation will be asking themselves of Elijah Blake today, after he extended his lead as R&B’s fastest rising newbie with a remix to Drake‘s smash hit single, ‘Started From The Bottom’.
Find out why his stock as an entertainer is set to sky rocket below…
After being released on Friday 15th March, Blake’s remix to the cut pulled in a total of 5,870 plays within its first 24 hours of release- all of which were generated via his official SoundCloud page.
Indeed, in what gives sheds a clear light on how much interest there truly is around his buzz, these ‘Plays’ mark the latest digital high for the ‘XOX’ vocalist, after his ‘Bijoux 22’ EP secured 20,000 downloads in its first day of release and a further 16,000 by the end of its launch week.
All of this, giving some indication as to why he is reportedly been billed a ‘priority act’ by Roc Nation‘s Jay Brown and Def Jam‘s NO ID and Joie Manda.
With 27,809 of these downloads generated from Marcus Frasier‘s ‘Dat Piff’, this EP has now been certified Bronze while the EP’s combined YouTube views sit pretty at the 99,641 mark.
With so many discovering the vocalist’s music via word of mouth and social networking mediums, one can only imagine how lucrative he’s set to become once his promotional train really kicks off .
