    Roc only promote their light skinned chicks, accept for Bridget, she’s the exception.

  4. PauloMaraj February 7, 2014

    @lovebird, don’t bite the hand that feeds rih!!!!! what does being light skin have to do with anything…. people always want to throw skin complexion into play of music…. Music doesn’t have a color, and Great Music don’t discriminate agianst any race

  7. xedos February 7, 2014

    Melanie is not on roc nation label she’s manage by them just like Rihanna.

  8. Music Stan( ya’ll know who I stan for) February 7, 2014

    @xedos you are right but the manangement is thru Roc Nation WHICH IS own by SHAWN CARTER…. that is why I told @lovebird don’t bite the hand that feeds Rih, cause music industry Management can drop an artists today or tommorrow….!!!

    some Rihanna fan probably dislike what I said but it is the truth….. Who MANAGEMENT HER?? ROC Nation…. and Being Light skin or white has nothing to do with it… This is a POP MUSIC site so they cover more stories about Pop artists… they do post articles about r&b artist but the pop artist get them more hit cause the traffic is more intrested in pop divas then r&b divas….. Melanie do get promote but she is more for the R&B crowd and for grown folks… radio station like Tom Joyner, Stevie Harvey and etc play more of her music, you would hear her music on Hot 97, Power 105, or on the Ryan Seacrest show….

  9. Music Stan( ya’ll know who I stan for) February 7, 2014

    wouldn’t ^^^^^^^

  10. BeyWhoUWanna February 7, 2014

    @MusicStan is so naive. Powerful people decide who gets pushed and who doesn’t, not the public so stop being so stupid.

  11. Music Stan( ya’ll know who I stan for) February 7, 2014

    @BeyWhoUWanna question how I’m naive??? you are right powerful people do decided who they want to push out, but if you read the comments before you try to come for me you will see why my respones was the way it was… one person brought up skin complexion, one brought up roc nation, another one brought up Melaine Foina…. so how I’m naive from answering what other people bring up…. and please let’s not talk cause I sit back and watch your comments and you bring up other things into article that has nothing to do with the person…. Now back to this topic…. Melaine foina is being push in the R&B world ( hence I said R&B WORLD) if you take a listen to R&B station instead of station that only played Rihanna, Beyonce, Nicki Minaj, Katy, and Gaga you would know that…. listen to Tom Joyner, Steve harvey and you will hear more Melaine Foina songs that Rihanna on those station so to prove my point LIKE I SAID IN MY EARLIER COMMENT…. THIS SITE POST MORE ARTICLES ON POP ARTIST ( POP IS TAKEN FROM THE WORD POPULAR) THAN R&B ARTIST LIKE MELAINE SO THAT IS WHY IT SEEM THAT SHE ISN’T PROMTOED OR PUSH MORE BUT GUESS WHAT SHE IS… SHE WAS THE OPENING ACT FOR BEYONCE’S TOUR THIS YEAR IN SELECTED CITIES… SO BEFORE YOU COME FOR ME AND CALLING ME SOMETHING THAT YOU ARE CLEARLY ARE READ FIRST!!! POST STATEMENTS ON A TOPIC FROM A STAN POINT DOESN’T MAKE YOU SMART NEITHER CAUSE YOU BELEIVE THE BLOG BEFORE YOU ACTUALLY BELIEVED YOUR FAVE…. GOOD DAY

  12. Music Stan( ya’ll know who I stan for) February 7, 2014

    @BeyWhoUWanna AND THE GENERAL PUBLIC DO HAVE A SAID ON WHO THEY WANT TO HEAR OR SEE MORE OF…. HENCE SELLS… IF THE GENERAL PUBLIC DOESN’T BUY THE MUSIC WHAT HAPPENS TO THE MUSIC???? IT IS SOMETHING THAT YA’LL LOVE TO SAY ON THIS SITE “FLOP” RIGHT???? SO HOW THE GENERAL PUBLIC DOESN’T COME INTO PLAY WITH PROMOTING THE ARTIST… DON’T THE GENERAL PUBLIC PURCHASE THE ARTIST MECHANDISE, AND BUY THE CONCERT TICKEST, AND ATTENDS THE CONCERTS, AND VOTE ON WHO SHOULD RECIEVE THE AWARDS, HENCE “I WANT TO THANK THE FANS” SPEECH…. MY NAME IS MUSIC STAN FOR FUN BOO I DO THIS…. OUTTA HERE

  13. ABC February 7, 2014

    Yawn

  14. Music Stan( ya’ll know who I stan for) February 7, 2014

    TO ALL THE COMMENTERS ON THIS SITE INCLUDING YOU @BeyWhoUWanna LET ME SCHOOL YOU ON BUSINESS 101 THE MUSIC INDUSTRY IS LIKE A WALMART THE ARE A VARIETY OF BRAND OF MUSIC( GENRE ARE THE DEPARTMENTS AND THE RECORDS LABELS ARE THE MAKERS OF THE PRODUCT AND THE ARISTS ARE THE BRAND ) YOU HAVE YOUR NAME BRAND MUSIC AND ARTISTS FOR EXAMPLE BEYONCE, USHER, RIHANNA, AND ETC THEN YOU HAVE YOUR GENERIC BRAND ( INDEPENDENT LABLE AND ARTIST)LIKE DWELE, DALEY, JHENE AIKO… NOW IF YOU ALWAYS PURCHASE A RIHANNA PRODUCT CASUE THE QUALITY IS BETTER SUIT FOR YOU THAN YOU WILL CONTINUE TO PURCHASE UNTIL ONE DAY THE WAL MART RUNS OUT OF IT…. AND ALL THERE IS LEFT IS THE GENERIC BRAN ( RITA ORA ) SO HERE IS WHERE THE LAW OF SUPLLY AND DEMAND COMES TO PLAY…. SINCE THE SUPPLY OF RITA ORA IS MORE THEN RIHANNA AND YOU ARE A FAN OF THE RIHANNA PRODUCT YOUR DEMAND FOR MORE IS GOING TO BE HIGH, AND WHERE AS SOME AREN’T A FAN OF RIHANNA THEY ARE GOIGN TO DEMAND MORE OF RITA, NOW IT THERE IS MORE SUPPLY THAN DEMAND THE COMPANY IS LOSING MONEY CAUSE THEY OVER STOCK THE SUPPLY WITH LESS DEMAND… HENCE R&B MUSIC THE SUPPLY IS THERE BUT THE DEMAND IS LOW, AND POP MUSIC THE DEMAND IS HIGH BUT THE SUPPLY IS LOW

    Rihanna can also drop her manager. J.Lo has fired many managers, what’s to stop RIHANNA?

    DefJam, RIHANNA’s label; Roc Nation, her management. Rihanna is not binded by them, she can fire them anytime just like Jennifer Lopez has fired many of her managers.

  16. Lovebird February 7, 2014

    And what I said is true; only white/light skinned artists get signed and or pushed at Roc Nation.

    It’s the worst label to be on if you’re dark skinned.

  17. Music Stan( ya’ll know who I stan for) February 7, 2014

    @lovebird wale is signed to roc nation and he is doing fine

  18. Music Stan( ya’ll know who I stan for) February 7, 2014

    @lovebird Rihanna is obligated to both Def Jam and Roc Nation let’s say if her next release flop and she start not sell tickets like she use to they will both drop her… just pay attention to all the arists who was signed to def jam and jay-z…. just the music bizness period

  19. Lovebird February 7, 2014

    Wale is not selling the albums Rihanna is selling.

    In showbiz, management works for the artist. An artist is not obligated to the management, an artist can fire the management at anytime. Beyonce just recently fired her manager, Jennifer Lopez has fired multiple managers.

    Rihanna is obligated to DefJam, she can fire Roc Nation at anytime.

  20. Music Stan( ya’ll know who I stan for) February 7, 2014

    Ummmmm @lovebird yes the management works for the aritst but the management can drop the artist if they want to… hence independent artists….. alot of big time artist who once have success are independent artist becuase alot of management companies don’t want to invest time and money on them if they aren’t going to bring back revenue…. Roc Nation and Def Jam are both Jay-z’s company so she is obligated to both…. Jay-z get a huge percentage of what Rihanna makes… then the writers, laywers, etc etc then Rihanna get what is left… that is why artists tour for so long cause they make most of their money off ticket sales…. management don’t touch that money… why you think MARIAH tour for so long… and wale is doing okay in the hip hop world he has hit…

  21. Music Stan( ya’ll know who I stan for) February 7, 2014

    @lovebird you are obligated to them under contract… it if you break your contract the management companies had a right to file a lawsuit… yes beyonce fire her management but did you wonder how long she was trying to do it…

  22. Lovebird February 7, 2014

    Defjam invests in the artist, Roc Nation is supposed to get and negotiate deals for the artist. This is why an artist can fire the management. Again, Rihanna is not obligated to RN.

    Lady Gaga just fired her manager, what you’re saying is all theory but the facts still remain; an artist doesn’t owe a manager anything besides the 20% they get on negotiated deals.

    Hence Roc investing in Rita Ora (her label) but not Rihanna; that’s DefJams job. That’s why the CEO of DefJam flew with Rihanna on the 777 tour.

    Facts > your opinion.

  23. Lovebird February 7, 2014

    The contract states what percentage they get on deals they get you and other minor issues. Everything else is with the label.

    This is why it’s easy for Rebecca Ferguson to fire her management, but she still had to pay them what she owed them.

    Kylie is a true legend – one of the only female artists of our time to remain a “lady” throughout her entire career.

    Always upbeat and professional, never attacking another artist or the press.
    Keep moving forward~

    Rihanna is smart. Rihanna fires her first mgr.and went to roc nation. Jay z use to get endorsement for her even those he was not her Mgr through his company with steve stout.its call translation something its an advertising company.So the smart thinking rihanna fire her mgr. and cut a deal with roc nation . a one stop shop. she gets endorsement, she gets touring because of the live nation jay z deal, and she gets mgmt. so instead of paying out a percentage to three or four different people, she consolidate everything for a percentage. instead of paying out 40 or 50%,now she may be just be paying 30 or 40%. she also establish her own company under the roc nation umbrella call “Rihanna entertainment” Jay said it was rihanna who walked into his office with her lawyer and the proposal.

    Also in the elevator hall, they often display flooral arrangements
    placed on a console table. Give priority to a comany that
    makes your imagination come true. Over time, many of
    these radio personnel will be readily agreeable to featuring the entrepreneur whenever
    thry release neww products or services.
