There are a lot of uncertainty about what the world will be like after COVID19. Every industry, without exception, has been severely impacted by the spread of the corona virus. The music industry in particular has suffered financially, with all shows, tours, bars, nightclubs, festivals etc. cancelled and closed.
Some may assume that it is just the more popular artists that are affected by these cancellations, but that is not the case. We must remember that there are literally thousands of persons working behind the scenes who have now all lost their employment, hence their income.
With that being said, we must now face our new reality, as we ponder the question; what’s next? What will the music industry be like when all this is over with? Will festivals resume as they were before? Will the masses flock to live shows as aggressively as they did in the past? I think the answer depends on two things: 1) how long this pandemic last and 2) the financial and moral status of the people when it’s all over.
On Friday, March 27th, Troyton Music released a new R&B track titled “Over Again.” The song is performed by pop artist Ne-Yo and Jamaican dancehall star Charly Black. Music critics are already making predictions about the record; the consensus seems to be that it will be just as, or bigger than Party Animal.
