Tinashe Desires to Take Fans on a Joyride

It is hard for an artist that is new to the industry to get the attention of fans that are looking for some entertainment. Tinashe is someone that had a big hit at the beginning of her career, but the mega hit can often turn into a nightmare for someone that may have never been able to produce another successful single after that. This is very well the case for Tanisha.
She has a new album called “JoyRide,” and some of her fans cannot wait to hear it. Typically, it is the dedicated fans that are putting their interest into hearing her music. There are a lot of other people that are part of the entertainment industry that Tinashe is competing with. All the other artists out there make it very hard for her to build a career because the competition is so strong. No one can deny that she has talent. No one can deny that she has sex appeal. The reality, however, is that Tinashe the type of of artist that doesn’t get much radio play. That has kept her away from the spotlight for a long time.

When you don’t have the hit songs it becomes harder to get the radio spins.
Joyride is a better album then the last mixtape that she brought to her fans, but she is going to have to push really hard to make this CD shine. She is going to have to promote it more and do more to get people to look at what she is bringing to the table. If she doesn’t push herself with social media it will be difficult for her to stand out from other artists like Janelle Monae and Beyonce. These are superstars that are making innovative videos for every single that they have.

Drakes Drops “Nice For What” and Continues to Expand Singles Catalog

There are a lot of players in the rap game, but it appears that this is an industry that is cruel to those who stay away too long. Kanye West is someone that may never be able to reclaim the thrown because he has been gone way too long. People like Lil Wayne have been away so long that he has actually become irrelevant when it comes to rap.

What new artists like Drake are realizing is that it is not about the album so much anymore. Drake is someone that has mastered the system because he knows that it is much more about the singles that you are releasing. The recent release of his single “Nice for What” that captures a Lauryn Hill sample from “Ex-Factor” is a perfect example of his expedient timing when it comes to releasing hit singles.

Drake is someone that realizes that it is more important to put a single out and get the radio play that draws a mainstream crowd to your music. There is not necessarily a need to put out a great album because everything is streaming now. Many stores have even stopped carrying compact discs. This means that it makes no sense to put so much money into creating a full-length album when people are only creating your own playlists and grabbing singles from artists.

Drake as managed to also add more fame to his name by appearing on tracks from other artists. He looks at this as a launch pad to get people to stay familiar with his music. Over the years he has appears on tracks with 2 Chainz, Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, Kendrick Lamar, Beyonce, Jhene Aiko and Kanye West. This is how Drake keeps his name hot even when he is not releasing a full-length album.

J Cole “KOD” Shows that Rap is Still a Young Man’s Gamenm

There are a lot of people in the industry that are wondering how they can improve their spins when it comes to their time on the radio. The rappers that are looking at the radio as the vehicle for their music are behind the times. This is not where any of the success lies these days. It is all about Spotify and other web streaming music sites like Pandora.

This is something that Drake realizes, and this is also something that is relevant for artists like Kendrick Lamar. J Cole is one of the few artists that is able to make an album where every song Hit the Billboard charts. This is rare, and it is highly unlikely that this would be the case for most rappers, but J Cole is not most rappers.

With the ”KOD” album J Cole was reaching deep to put together an album that was very much unlike anything else that he has been done. From this perspective people may compare him to a group like OutKast. Each time this duo released a new album it was showing an outstanding amount of growth. That is what people look at when they see J Cole. They know that he is going to release content that does not sound like anything else that is out there for the moment.

When it comes down to rappers that are ready to make their names known in the industry it is clear that people like Kendrick Lamar, J Cole, Migos and Drake are rappers that are standing in place as the leaders of the new generation. Jay-Z still created a platinum album in his retirement stage, but Shawn Carter will continue to make hits for millennials. He is older and rap music has always been a young rapper’s game.

The Downfall of Eminem in Modern Day Hip Hop

The ”Revival”album by Eminem was anything but a revival for his career. At one time Eminem was the hottest crossover rapper in the game. Today he is still someone that has the ability to spit more than a few bars of hotness, but people are less inclined to stream his attacks on Trump and add his angry songs to their playlists. He represents an era of rap where the artist is at odds with what his fans want to hear. It is the same type of musical obscurity that Prince succumbed to before he passed.

Eminem is the portrait of an angry rapper. He has put his time in to building a career where most of his songs have been controversial and funny. There have been some seriousness in the songs he has written, but Eminem has always been someone that brought humor to hip hop.

In his old age Eminem has become someone that has had a bizarre downward spiral as a rapper. The motivation that he had to come after adversaries is not quite there anymore. It stands to reason that his focus is not the same because elements in his life that drove him to success are not the same.

The ongoing battle study had with the custody of his daughter with his ex are no longer a major issue. His daughter is a college student now. The issues that he had with his mother appeared to have been resolved over the years as his aggression about his own life took a backseat.

It stands to reason that an artist like Eminem that put so much of his own life into his rhymes is now at a point where he has no more fuel to rhyme about anything. He has aged and his rhymes are dismal.

Talos Energy : The Recent Development It Has for Gulf of Mexico and Zama Oil Project

The most popular products and services today are rightfully so because of the tinkering of their inventors and founders. Because of the massive intelligent risk-taking that its founders have done, a company succeeds and sustains its leadership in the competition.While it is also helpful for a business investor to see the business in the eye and to have a vision, the best way still is to let experience teach you how to do business, and this can be done through tinkering. One of the few companies today that understand how this tinkering, trial and error and contained risk-taking is done is Talos Energy, which is a successful energy production firm that’s based out of Houston, TX.

Zama Oil Discovery

One of the most recent propitious events in the operations of Talos Energy right now is the fact that it is able to do appraisal drilling for what is proudly known as the Zama-1 structure. It’s a drilling project that offers a lot of potential for profit growth through appraisal drilling. With many interested investors for project, it will be no time before Talos Energy expands its operations in various areas they had not yet considered.

The Founders That Made It Big

It may be because of the specialized skills and fantastic risk-taking abilities of Talos’ Founders, John A. Parker and John L. Harrison, as well as Stephen Heitzman and Timothy Duncan, that Talos Energy Inc. right now is one of the most successful businesses in Houston. However, their success would also not be there without the right kind of luck and fortunate circumstances that their company has withstood and encountered.For example: the expertise at acquiring deepwater assets in Gulf of Mexico is already unquestionable on the part of the Talos, but the fact that they were still able to spot the right opportunities despite the limits of research and analysis is a significant factor in calculating for their success right now.It is also through the balanced mix of luck and skills that Talos Energy has since 2012 been able to build two Gulf of Mexico oil and gas establishments – Phoenix Exploration Co and Gryphon Exploration Co. -. With such risk-taking, these companies are able to provide a lot of fortune and significant returns on their equity investors.

Eminem Creates a New Vibe

Eminem is an artist that has had a plethora of platinum out of the years. He has become someone that is well-known in the hip hop community because he defied the odds. He made sure that he moved away from what was considered the norm and did something that was far left from anything that people need.

As a rapper that started his career as a bit of a jokester it appears that he is coming to a serious point as he nears retirement stage. The “Revival” album was an album that was on more of a serious tone with a lot of heavy lyrics that have gotten away from what he was originally known for doing his early days with Dr. Dre.

At this point Eminem is a much older artist, and he has an entirely different perspective on his life. His life has changed a lot from a celebrity status. This has caused them to become someone that reacts differently to the way that he creates music. He does not have the same reaction in the same mentality to create the things that made him successful. This transition from being poor to becoming rich covers a wide spectrum. It almost puts Eminem in a place where he really has nothing left to say when it comes to issues that are going on in the world.

The fans have disconnected themselves from Eminem even though he is still praised is one of the best rappers of this generation. He appears to be someone that is flustered with attempt at making albums because he is up against a much younger generation. In this day and age people are listening to more of the music that comes from the south. This takes Eminem out of the equation with the new millennials.

How Drake Commanded Attention in America

Even when Drake is absence he still knows how to come back into the rap game and make a very strong impression. This is what people have noticed when they take a serious look at the career that he has had so far. Drake seems to be someone that does no wrong when it comes to his selection of singles that he releases. It is obvious that he holds the key to content in America when it comes to rap, but many of his American fans may wonder how he fares in Canada.

 

The reality is that Drake is just as popular in Canada as he is in America. There have been other Canadian rappers that have tried to emulate his style and do what he does, but there is not anyone else out of Canada that has had the mainstream success that Drake has had when it comes to rap. It appears that he is someone that knows a lot about the culture in America because his dad lived in the south.

 

His ability to live in Canada during part of the year and Tennessee during the summer allowed him to gain a lot of experience about what was going on in hip-hop. Today Drake seems to be someone that can put out one hit after another without the bat of an eye. His latest single “Nice for What” is climbing up the charts, but this would not be the first time that Drake has been able to get something that would make people dance for the summer. From songs like “Hotline Bling” to the infectious “One Dance” it has become obvious that Drake is someone that knows how to create a catchy anthems at the right time. He has the ability to bounce back and forth into the spotlight.

 

Tinashe Falls to Reach Mainstream Audience with New Album

Tinashe is coming forth with a new album, and it appears to be another failed attempt to reach a mainstream audience. She has continued to be well known as an excellent dancer that puts together creative choreography routines, but her music tends to fall on deaf ears. There is a reason for this, and the reason is that she is trying to touch an audience that does not really exist anymore.

The music that Tinashe has created would be something that would have been popular when Aaliyah was alive. This type of dance move choreography was something that was big in the 90s, but it has taken a backseat to trap rap and the trap R&B type of style that has dominated the radio.

Tinashe has found herself to be somewhat confused about what really works, and it appears that she has done a little bit of everything because she has been unclear on what really works best.

In the early stages of her first hit record “2 On” Tinashe had a bit of a dance groove and it instantly became something of a mega hit. Three albums later tonight she would prove herself to be more of a one-hit wonder when it came to this song. There are tons of people that are now wondering where she is even though she has been releasing material on a regular basis.

She has the singing voice, but she has not connected with the right producers to give her the type of sound that she needs. This is why her new album has not been able to top the charts as well as it could. She has not surrounded herself with the hitmakers that are currently topping the charts on the radio. This poor choice of producers has caused her to be overlooked.

OSI Food solutions, a pacesetter in the food industry

When Otto Kolchowski established OSI group back in the 1900’s as neighborhood meat market, no one in their wildest dreams and that’s inclusive of Otto ever thought that it would one day become a global meat processing company. However, it has grown into exactly that and even surpassed our expectations. Bases in Illinois, Aurora to be precise, OSI food solutions is a pacesetter in the food industry and is one of the largest value-added food suppliers not only in the region but also in the world. Even though it started off small, the company now operates globally in 17 countries with more than 65 facilities and a large employee batch of over 20,000 people. It provides a diverse array of products for its wide customer base ranging from fish, poultry, hot dogs, meat patties and even vegetable products.

How the company amasses its growth

As mentioned earlier, OSI food solutions began as a small family market in Oak Park but is now one of the biggest food companies and even ranks 58 on Forbes list of America’s largest private companies.
How did it reach here?

The company’s monumental success can be attributed to its impressive leadership and management panel. Ever since it was established the company has always been led by a generation of leaders with impressive skills who make strategic moves to steer it forward with each wake.

For instance, in a bid to expand and serve its European Market in a holistic manner, the company recently finished acquisition of Baho Foods which is Dutch company that operates over five subsidiaries in the region. Thanks to the move OSI food solutions will now be able to gain even more growth and increase its influence into Europe because Baho food is a company that is not only well versed with how the European market works but also boasts a solid customer base. That is not the only innovative move that OSI food solutions has made as there are plenty others. For instance, in a bid to increase its production capacity so it can meet and exceed customer demands, OSI also purchased former Tyson foods plant based in Chicago. It also increased its chicken production capacity to more than 45000 after it expanded its production line in Spain.

These are just but a few of the factors which make OSI soar high every day and with an annual excess revenue of 1$1.6 billion it is no surprise that the company is one of America’s top 100 companies. It continues to expand its horizons with each dawn and its recent addition of flagship Europe is sufficient proof of that. It also sets the pace for other food companies by offering a long string of food solutions so that each and every customer can get more than one of their favorite delicacies on the menu. With more than ten decades of experience, OSI Food group continues to take over the international market and is proof enough that the kind of management that a business has, can make or break it.

Environmental sustainability

Surprisingly unlike most successful firms which degrade the environment, OSI food solutions has been able to amass its colossal success without hurting Mother Nature. It is thanks to this and its exceptional operations that the company bagged the prestigious 2016 globe of honor awards from the British safety council. Besides this award, OSI has also bagged a long string of many other honors and it continues to amaze us with its strategic moves every day.

Kendrick Lamar Takes Home Prestigious Award

The DAMN album by Kendrick Lamar has become the first rap album to get a rapper the Pulitzer Prize. This seems like a cherry on top for Kendrick Lamar who has already won best rap album for the same album.

There has been so much talk about his growth as an artist, but no one would have expected that he would have been able to go in this direction after previous albums that did not sound anything like this one.

The only thing that people can really say to compare the albums in terms of similarities is the storytelling ability that Kendrick Lamar has brought to the table. He has always seemed to be an artist that was content with using his platform to tell stories. He paints pictures of his own life, but everything is complex for Kendrick.

He paints a vivid picture and he gets people to understand that he is doing things that are connecting old samples from songs to new music that he is unveiling. Every track from the DAMN album contains a sample of an older song. Kendrick has said that these were all songs that were played in his household as he was growing up.

Most rappers are influenced to sample old beats based on the music that they heard while they were growing up. Jay-Z has often talked about soulful music that inspired many of the older tracks that he sampled from artists like Stevie Wonder, Donny Hathaway and Bobby Blue Bland. Now Kendrick is bringing his fans up to speed on the type of music that was being played in this household when he was young. He has found himself in a great situation where the mainstream and the underground crowd has both embraced what Kendrick Lamar possesses in terms of skills.
