J Holiday’s Interview Was Amazing. This music artist is truly gifted. Unfortunately, Def Jam did not give J Holiday his just due.
J Holiday speaks about his contract
J Holiday’s Interview was amazing. I was really impressed with J Holiday. The fact, J was willing to speak candidly about his career was refreshing. In fact, J’s interview with the hosts O’God and SamAnt was really great.
I think it is not very often that music artist reveal much. However, I got the impression that J was comfortable in his own space.
Especially, when J talked about how Def Jam did not put effort into advancing his career. And, J was quick to point out that he was not in the music business for the flash. In other words, some would consider J authentic. I tend to agree. I came up in an era where R&B music dominated the scene.
But when Hip Hop came on the scene it really resonated with young people. In doing so, Hip Hop kind of put R&B in the background, so to speak. Fortunately, R&B is still very relevant.
Not to mention, R&B is really the foundation in which Hip Hop is built on. Now, some Hip Hop artist may not agree. I beg to differ. One primary example, would be how a lot of hip hop artist sampled James Brown’s music.
Clearly, there is bases for my analogy. Having said this, J Holiday reminded us all that the art is more important than the bling. You may not remember this, but J lashed out at some artists (Beyonce, SZA, and Cardi B) in 2018 in an interview by Billboard.
J believed that the artist mentioned have used their painful experiences to garner sympathy in their songs. Of course, J did receive some backlash for his comments.
Be that as it may, J did have a valid point. We are a very diverse people who can sing about other things beside our pain. Would you agree?
