I agree that he needs to work with better songwriters but not those who write radio hits. The best and most talented songwriters are indie IMO. No, the songs usually don't end up on the radio but the songs are great songs and they aren't written with the same cliche lyrics and storylines and beats.

I've mentioned this before but someone's career he could follow in is A Fine Frenzy's. I would classify her music as indie/singer-songwriter pop. She is on a major label and doesn't get radio play but she is still really successful. The key is being able to market David so he can be successful without having to relying on radio hits to sell music and getting new fans.

I think that sort of is what David has in mind for his career tbh...a route like her. It'd be good for him, IMO.

For me I love his new songs and his older songs. The albums are very different but I love them both in their with the different styles. I thought his second album is relevant to the situations we are facing with the recessions and all. I love how upbeat his second album is, it is a breath of fresh air. The more I listen to his new album I am actually appreciating it more and the work David has put on it. flowers.gif I think that his album is great it just lacks what everyone of his fans are saying which is promotion and advertising. excl.gif I hope Jive starts to work harder on getting his music out there so people can actually hear it. blarg.gif

It's too bad the industry doesn't acknowledge non- US sales. I wonder how much TOSOD has sold worldwide?

Agreed. original.gif I think though right now David has a problem with gaining new fans because everyone thinks all he does is teen pop and ballads when he's actually got soooooooooooo much up his sleeve. So even when he does release a more mature album (like tosod, though only lyrics-wise) people aren't likely to check it out due to their preconceptions. So it's gonna take some time for David to shed the teenage-girls-only-listen-to-his-music-cuz-he's-cute image.

QUOTE(tibitibi @ Jan 25th 2011, 12:03 AM) *

You don't hear that many artist to do that, because usually other singers have more life experience than David so in consequence they can write about more relatables subjets that people can connect easily and enjoy and be happy, that in the end is David goal with his music too ... i guess?. David has too many 'toboos' to sing about some of the most normal relatables subjets like 'Love', i understand he don't feel comfortable to write about love and relationships, but he can interpret with full emotions other people songs and still on his comfort zone...........i mean we know he likes some other people songs and we know too is a way to express what he wants or thinks (his words) , maybe because he don't need to justify to his picky fans the lyrics of someone else is more easy for him .

I think David hasn't completely shut the door on love songs just because he hasn't been in a relationship. original.gif David recorded lots of love songs with Eman and other people for this album as I would imagine. The fact that he even ended up choosing to put Falling Stars on the album and that he also sings it a lot shows that he isn't gonna avoid a song just because it's a love song, or that he didn't help write it. Which is cool. original.gif

I think though, if there were an illegal downloads chart in Malaysia/Sing/Indon/Phils, SBL would be tops too haha. with a smaller margin between him and kesha too.

i think david should go in the josh groban direction which his voice is better suited for. these quirky, bordering on stupid songs(elevator) with all the falsetto crap does not showcase his amazing voice whatsoever.

I'm a non Fan of Elevator, a Lover of TOSOD. I agree he the abused with the falsetto, i like quirky/fun lyrics, but i think he need better balance with more deep ones though, I'm an older fan , but ew! not Josh Groban route, i love him but that is too much for me noexpression.gif no.gif

i think david needs to get in the studio and make another album ASAP and jive needs to focus on marketing to his core fans which are 25-50 yrs. old and forget about the teens!!!

Was she actually dropped or is that just a rumor?

Regardless, I think Jive put more into Ciara which means they might have spent more money on her. They pushed hard to get her a top 10 on Urban which didn't really do much for her in the long run, they got her a high-profile Justin Timberlake collaboration during her previous era which ultimately failed....although I still think Jive really screwed things up for her as well, but I can see why they'd drop her.

I think it is just a rumor at this point. I also don't think that Jive got her the Justin collab. I think them having the same manager is what got her the collab with Justin. Maybe Justin wanted to also do some writing and producing for her.
