Are usa arie and musiq soulchild dating
She was out there -- hell she walked beside me in Indianapolis .
Her CD was very powerful, and didn't get half as much play as it should have. If India was a bit more......."cute" do you think she would have gotten more recognition?Hmmmm Another thought I had was what IF India does NOT want her music to be marketed towards either a specific ethnic group or towards people who listen to other genres of music?I don't know, I'm just looking at it from another level.She could have easily appeared on Rosie, Regis & Kelly, etc, but as far as I know it didn't happen. Unfortunately like someone already mentioned, Motown is HORRIBLE in their marketing. I admit I do love the song that one and the movie O Brother Where Art Thou. I thought it was about time they recognized us voluptuous women! "dark" issue -- I did not make it that way but that is a sub component of the India versus Alicia as well. Plus Alicia has more of a crossover appeal than India does. There ARE other ways to get an artist out there and they are just not doing it at all.If India was with J Records with Clive Davis, I think we would be looking at a TOTALLY different picture. Being an open minded person, it was nice to see this type of music get a little props. Originally posted by Virtual Violet I hate to say it, but this sounds like the topic turned to "light v. While our people and our nation needs more of what India's music offers, A MESSAGE, they are not as accepting of it as they should be. Virtual Violet, I don't know about that, because Angie Stone is on J Records and even though they tried to pull her in with Alicia on those shows doing the remix of "Brotha" she still hasn't gotten her just due after all these years. But then again, Alicia Keys has Clive Davis behind her.
