RapReviews.com writer Nervous has created a “Hot or Not”-like site for music, where users can listen to song samples and anonymously rate what they hear on a scale of 1 to 10. In his words:
Like a lot of you, I have spent a considerable amount of time on sites like MySpace and SoundClick checking out other people’s music and trying to get them to check mine out too.
One day, I had a brainstorm: wouldn’t it be nice to have a place where you did not have to worry about heavy graphics and big files loading and could just concentrate on the tracks? No marketing tricks, just go from track to track and concentrate on the music?
The result of this idea is The Track Meet, to which we happily contributed “Dreams Come True” for rating purposes. After all, who knows more about what’s really hot than the listeners themselves?
The listeners have spoken, and “Dreams Come True” is solidly holding down the #1 spot in the Top 50, currently averaging nearly two points above the next highest rated track. Though the lead single from the upcoming Family Business album has appeared on record charts and received industry shine, this is something of a “People’s Choice” type distinction coming directly from the listening public. So for that, we thank you.
And don’t forget to vote yourself: when it comes to the Track Meet, you don’t have to wait another two weeks for your voice to be heard!
