Griff, Pa Salieu and Rina Sawayama are up for Brits Rising Star Award.

Instead of the BRIT Awards highlighting Rina Sawayama, she directed the spotlight on the British Phonographic Industry (BPI).

In fact, Rina Sawayama has dominated the headlines with her nomination. The 30-year-old pop star was not eligible for the Brit awards or the Mercury prize, because the Japanese musician didn’t hold a British passport or dual citizenship. After going public with the story, the BPI quickly made changes and announced that it had changed the eligibility criteria.
Past winners include Adele, Sam Smith and Florence + the Machine.


Twitter boss Jack Dorsey is buying Jay Z’s streaming platform Tidal hoping to find new ways for artists to make money.

If you’ve never heard of Tidal, that’s not shocking. Jay-Z bought Tidal for millions but itnever found proper footing because Spotify and Apple Music dominated the market.
Tidal never had a big subscriber base, hence, never paid artists substantial money.

Anyhow, Jesse Dorogusker, the Square executive now in charge of Tidal says,
“We see musicians as entrepreneurs who have some tools but not others. They don’t have great financial systems.”

Will Tidal help artists sell merchandise and tickets using data? I’m not sure what the plan is….


Eminem released a new track in response to a TikTok campaign that is trying to CANCEL him.

“I won’t stop even when my hair turns gray (I’m tone deaf)/ ‘Cause they won’t stop until they cancel me,” Em tweeted when dropping the video.

Eminem was blasted by a TikTok Campaign over the 2010 single, “Love the Way You Lie,” that promotes domestic violence according to critics. Marshall Mathers doesn’t sweat backlash. In fact, he welcomes the media mob.


The government of India has threatened to jail employees of Facebook, WhatsApp, and Twitter as it seeks to end political protests and take control over American owned tech platforms.

Twitter “will continue to advocate for the fundamental principles of the Open Internet,” a company spokesman said, adding: “Threats to these principles are on the rise around the world, which is of deep concern.”
Other nations have responded that the U.S. big tech companies are not advocating an open internet. Instead these social platforms have morphed into media and publishing companies.
Right now, Facebook and WhatsApp have more users in India than in any other country.
