You heard of NFT by now, so lets talk about it for 10 seconds.
NFTs can be anything digital such as memes, drawings, music, even a tweet. You can more or less sell anything digital. The buyer can own it that comes along with a digital certificate. Jack at Twitter sold his tweet for a couple of million. Grimes made $6 million from the sale of digital artworks while 3LAU made $11.6 million from a collection of limited edition NFTs.
Artists are exploring the NFT world right now. It’s a new method to sell their work.
Lewis Capaldi is selling digital cards called the Fat Sexy Collectible Card Experience. Doja Cat is selling her first collection of NFTs called Juicy Drops.
How did NFTs become the talk? In 2017, John Watkinson and Matt Hall created characters on the Ethereum blockchain. They called their project Cryptopunks which helped NFT become mainstream. Others artists quickly jumped on the wagon hoping to take advantage.
Is NFT just a hype? Maybe. The discussion around NFT is breaking the internet right now, but for the artists sake, I hope it can become revenue stream.
“The 2 AM music video illustrates the first half of the 2 AM EP narrative; that feeling of getting caught up in the rush of it all and slowly having to find yourself on the way down.The upcoming music video for Ultraviolet tells the second half of that story of unexpected attraction and the self discovery that leaning into those feelings leads to” shares Rachel.

Look out for Rachel Costanzo aka RARIA’s Tried To Love You that comes off her EP ‘Boys Who Broke My Heart’ You love if you like Julia Michaels and Bebe Rexha. It’s well crafted pop that’s a notch above the ocean of beats and toplines.

The past three years of my life have been such a transformational time. I’ve had my heart broken, questioned everything and had the rug pulled out from under me when I least expected it”

If you haven’t heard of the heartbreak song Arcade by Duncan Laurence, you will by the time you read this. In fact, you most likely heard, you just aren’t aware of the name of the track or the artist.
The Eurovision winning song has amassed over 300 million Spotify streams. The song landed on the US Billboard Hot 100, the first time a Eurovision song hit in the chart in 45 year.
Duncan Laurence won the Eurovision Song Contest in 2019 in Tel Aviv, Israel. His win gave the Netherlands their fifth Eurovision win. Now, the song is charting in United States, South America, Asia and Australia.
TikTok gave the song momentum when Harry Potter fans were making videos using cut scenes from the Harry Potter films.
The message of “Arcade” took off with TikTok users, particularly the lyric “All I know, all I know, Loving you is a losing game”. But for Duncan, it’s a winning game.

“I wrote this song a few weeks before graduating collage. That time in your life when nothing is curtain and anything is possible. I was having panic attacks left and right and music is something that grounds me. This song sounds like its about a broken relationship but really it’s about me feeling alone in a big scary world” shares Hayden. Give it a stream on KOAR’s Indie Invaders Playlist.
