‘Started From The Bottom’: Elijah Blake Makes Digital Gains Ahead Of Debut Album

Elijah+Blake That Grape Juice Started From The Bottom: Elijah Blake Makes Digital Gains Ahead Of Debut Album

Singer/Songwriter…mega seller?

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.

    Not everyone is a man chasing w**** like you.

    You strike me as the kind of trade worshipping queen who will do anything to bed the kind of dude that would beat your ass to death for looking at him funny.

    The fact that you equate success with sex shows how limited your mind is and how far you WON’T go in life. SOME people achieve their dreams on the merit of the spirit and work ethic, NOT how many inches can fit in their mouth or wherever else feels good at the time.

    I feel guilty every time i look at him lustfully, but I can’t help myself. The lips, the skin, the body. The thing i like about him is that his music is good and he feels like a real artist whose only about the music but the sex appeal….my body has been ready.

    Interesting. I like Frank and enjoy how well he’s done so I’d be more than happy if we had more R&B boys doing just as well. I played his Drake remix after you put it up her e and I liked it but not as much as his own music.

    Please don’t paint us all with the same brush. I come here because I like how the writers write and the general kii kii but I can’t stand these bitches who think every black man with a few zeros to his name likes d*** and ass.

    I agree with you but anyone behind the scenes knows that a lot of the cats dabble in both ponds.
    That doesn’t mean they’re gay or even bi but EVERYONE whose ever worked behind the scenes long enough knows that a lot of the cats in the industry are NOT exclusively straight.

    The reason people assume every R&B boy likes other boys is because it is true. You don’t want even to know some of the stories make up artists and interns can tell you about the things they’ve seen in studios and vip rooms.

    KellyKDL Replied:

    @Boo Thang I feel what you’re saying but can you blame people for being suspicious. Not that its anyone business, but many guys in the music business do hit for both sides of the game. Would you have believed Frank liked other guys before he told us? No, if someone told you he liked other men you’d say they were a liar.

    Generally speaking not the music industry alone, any regular Joe whose well educated and happen to be successful is gay?!… thats what we come to believe anyway within the black community. It baffles me how our own kind equate ones sexual orientation with their social achievements which is pretty pathetic and ignorant!
