Beyoncé and Madonna have joined forces for a remix of “Break My Soul”.

The 40-year-old singer released “The Queens Remix” of “Break My Soul” featuring excerpts from Madonna’s 1990 Vogue hit.

Mimicking the classic spoken word section of Madonna’s “Vogue,” Beyonce names iconic black women in music, including Aaliyah, Nina Simone and her own sister, Solange Knowles.

She also greets Madonna, 63, singing: “Queen Mother Madonna, Aaliyah, Rosetta Tharpe, Santigold, Bessie Smith, Nina Simone, Betty Davis, Solange Knowles. Lauryn Hill, Roberta Flack, Toni, Janet, Tierra Whack. Missy, Diana, Grace Jones, Aretha, Anita, Grace Jones.”

This is the first collaboration between Madonna and Beyonce.

Beyonce already surprised fans by releasing four different versions of her “Break My Soul” earlier this week.

The first track on the four-track EP is a three-minute, 58-second will.i.am remix of “Break My Soul,” while American DJ Terry Hunter offers a five-minute, 30-second version.

A six-minute, 27-second remix by Honey Dijon is the third song, and the last is a gigantic nine-minute, 54-second mix by Nita Aviance Club.

The release came after fans spotted Beyonce – who released seventh studio album ‘Renaissance’ last week – appearing to have removed samples of two Kelis tracks from one of the new album’s tracks, ‘Energy’, on some streaming platforms, just days after Kelis accused the ‘Crazy in Love’ hitmaker of using them without his approval.

It comes after Beyonce also removed an offensive term for people with disabilities from the lyrics of the song “Heated”.

The multiple Grammy winner announced the move earlier this week, after being called “capable” and “offensive” by charities and disability activists.

In the tune – which was co-written with rapper Drake – Beyonce used a pejorative term for spastic diplegia, a form of cerebral palsy, in the lines: “Spazzing on that a**, spaz on that a* *.”

A representative for the musician revealed that the lyrics would be changed, saying, “The word, not intentionally used in a harmful way, will be replaced.”

Should Independent Artists Look for Investors? https://wmgd.net/should-independent-artists-look-for-investors/ Mon, 18 Apr 2022 16:26:08 +0000 https://wmgd.net/?p=1130 Getting paid consistently is a challenge for independent hip-hop musicians.

Getting paid consistently is a challenge for independent hip-hop musicians. Because you aren’t a prominent label artist, you won’t have a company supporting you financially.

Getting money to invest in your trade is essential to a successful recording career. How can you make enough money to sustain yourself and your music?

It’s one thing for artists who still live with their parents, but supporting a family is another. Most aspiring independent rappers won’t be able to sustain themselves early in their careers through music sales or touring.

You could acquire a part-time job, but that would take time away from your music, and you want to devote as much time as possible to your craft.

Aside from acquiring a job, borrowing money from family or friends, or crowdsourcing your songs, you may seek investors to support your recording career.

Investing procedure

An investment in your music might help you pay for studio time, graphic design, promotion, and more as an independent musician.

The primary disadvantage is that you would be in debt for the investment amount — investors demand a return on their money.

Of course, seeking finance for an independent artist is like any other company. If you can persuade the investor that you are worth the risk, they will invest.

The most excellent approach to comprehend investment for an independent artist is to know your needs. You should watch out for three types of assets:

  • Private Equity – Individuals mainly produce private Equity. To finance your project at a pre-determined rate and timing.
  • Venture Capital (VC) is a kind of PE. This is not frequently considered for musicians, particularly independent artists.
  • Angel Investments (AI) are the best choices. They are wealthy investors seeking to profit from your achievement. They give lesser amounts of funding with less strain and stress than the primary sources.

The choice is made. Most choose the final selection, which decreases risk and investment. So you’ll work with someone who believes in your idea and abilities. In exchange, they finance the project.

Just be sure you can deliver on your half of the contract. But where can you locate the investment you want/hope for? Where can you discover investment in indie hip-hop artists?

Find Investors

According To PaydayNow, The best way to get investors for your recording career is to seek locally. Small Business Development Centers are good places to start looking for music investors.

Also, look for local business angels. The music community is typically more open to them than commercial proposals. An SBDC likely attracts investors who don’t understand your offer or request.

You need an investor with ambition and vision. Most individuals want to lend you money quickly. An angel investor frequently understands your goals. Working with angels allows you to be creative.

The issue is that locating the investment relies on your location. It’s usually preferable to start asking around in your local music community rather than trying to meet someone halfway across the world.

Local investors might also inquire around for better deals. You may now ask other artists and promoters whether you are worth the investment. This facilitates securing the funding.

But investing in you is still risky – what else can the investor think of?

Considerations:

  • Do your homework before meeting with an investor, both on them and your proposal.
  • Looking at your rivals, the local scene, the effectiveness of your music, and overall hip-hop statistics can help you convey that message.
  • You’ll also need to polish your sales spiel. You’re asking for money to compose music, so it better sound good.
  • Before meeting any investor or angel, consult a business planner or mentor. What you say must be appealing to an investor, not only yourself or other artists.
  • You may not be bringing a business pitch, but always have a strategy. Examine your local competitors and peers. Find out how they are doing and leverage local success stories as your crucial sticking point.

This will show potential investors that you are not following a fanciful fantasy but rather a real and sustained recording career.

Latto described working with Mariah Carey as a dream come true.

The rapper, who released her single Big Energy last September, released a remix featuring hitmaker Hero and DJ Khaled last month.

Big Energy’s new version interpolates Mariah’s 1995 track Fantasy, and in an interview with Variety, Latto raved about the experience.

“She’s so inspiring,” the star, real name Alyssa Stephens, told the outlet. “I’m grateful for the remix and for her voice – Mariah is a legend – but I’m grateful for the experience she gave me with this song and all the advice.”

Latto went on to share that Mariah has continued to guide her and texts her often.

And the rising star noted that she immediately connected with the superstar, as they are both biracial.

“I can understand that she doesn’t feel white enough or black enough, and that I don’t feel like I have a place to grow up,” the 23-year-old continued. “We also had personal experiences to recount, so the whole experience that I can’t even put into words. I really, really appreciate everything she’s done for me, there’s so much in behind the scenes that I can’t even speak. This lady is so genuine and of a very, very humble spirit.”

INTRODUCTION

Do you remember iconic songs like Bachna Ae Haseeno, Badanpe Sitare, Kehdoon Tumhe and Laila main Laila from the 70s, 80s or 90s? They were all blockbusters. The trend you see in movies or web series these days is a remixed version of these several renowned Bollywood songs. YouTube and Instagram Reels are full of videos of people or influencers singing and lip-syncing to songs of their own caliber. Speaking of remixes, composers alter the musical harmony by adding or changing beats and lyrics. Will it constitute copyright infringement if done without the consent of the original composer?

A remix can be explained as a multimedia composition that has been customized from its original state by increasing, removing and modifying segments of the music/melody. In the current era of exceptional remixes, a lack of originality in the music industry is discerned as many people are of the opinion that any unauthorized excerpt taken from an already established work amounts to copyright infringement. author. Additionally, the remix has made a significant contribution to society by providing entertaining content and has become a consistent part of user-generated content (UGC). The remixes have also made a substantial contribution when it comes to social media, e.g. Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Snapchat, Pinterest, etc. Additionally, copyright law incorporates sound recordings that represent any song with or without music and can podcasts or audios. Taking the example of Spotify, all audios and podcasts are copyrighted. We are fully aware of the fact that as soon as something is created, it is conventionally considered a work protected by copyright (whether registered or not). If a remix is ​​created without obtaining the prior consent of the original owner, it will result in an unauthorized remix and other repercussions for the original owner. Therefore, to make it eligible, a legal checklist must be followed.

REMIX MUSIC UNDER INDIAN COPYRIGHT LAW

Indian copyright law has its origins in the colonial rule of 1847. In 1914, the copyright law was again enacted in India with some significant changes. The 1914 regulations continued until new legislation was enacted in 1957. The new legislation was called the Copyright Act, 1957. In 2012, Parliament proclaimed the Copyright (Amendment) Bill, 2012which aimed to bring Indian copyright laws internationally and in line with World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) treaties, for example, the WIPO Copyright Treaty. (WCT) and the WIPO Performance and Program Treaty (WPPT). The changes made in 2012 were as follows:

  • Changes in the right to artistic work such as motion pictures and sound recordings.
  • Changes in Licensing and Assignment.
  • WIPO Treaty Compliant Changes.
  • Maintain all copyright permission records.
  • Protection against Internet piracy.
  • Protect remix makers under copyright law.
  • Prior consent must be obtained from the owner of the copyrighted work.

ARTICLE 52 OF THE COPYRIGHT LAW

Section 52(1)(j) Copyright The law says it will not constitute an infringement if a sound recording of the original literary or musical work prevails and the person seeking to copy it has duly consented to use it and create a sound recording and has also paid the original owner – the cost of royalties which has been predetermined by the Copyright Board.

The person seeking to create the remix may not make changes without the owner’s consent or may not make changes that are not required for the compliance of the work. The new phonogram should not be promoted with labels or covers that could mislead the public about the artist’s originality. The remix must not be produced before the expiration of two years after the end of the year in which the original song was created.

Ownership under the Act: The original owner has the right to review all recordings and postings with reference to the remix. The consent of the owner of the original song is consequential because the original sound recording was made by the owner and therefore he owns the exclusive right to the title. If the copyright owner files a complaint that the royalty has not been paid, or if the Copyright Board is prima facie satisfied with that complaint, it may warrant an order terminating the production of sound recordings and after carrying out additional investigations, it may adopt the necessary measures according to its convenience. Section 52(1)(j), stipulates that works as music and sound recordings must acquire permission from the copyright holder for specific performance and modifications. This acts as a legitimate sanction to use the copyrighted work in a certain way provided the user pays the required fee or complies with the stipulations of the law.

PROTECTING REMIX MANUFACTURERS UNDER THE LAW

According to Article 51 of the Law, if a person violates the right granted to the copyright holder, it will be considered an infringement. However, it will not constitute an infringement in such cases, where:

  • A person copies a musical work, an artistic work or any other work by giving his prior consent and paying a deposit to the owner of the original work.
  • The new work must not be promoted with labels or covers that could mislead the public as to the identity of the artist.
  • The new work must not be created before the expiry of a period of two years following the end of the year in which the original work was created.
  • The owner should be granted the right to examine all books and publications with reference to the new work.
  • It is understandable from the above points that the consent of the original owner of the musical work is of paramount importance and the remix should not be done before the expiration of 2 years from the end of the year in which the original song was created.

REMIX AS A COVER VERSION?

The law is unwilling to disclose information about legal licenses to make remixes. Section 31(c) of the The law stipulates the licensing of cover versions. The provision appears to prohibit the making of cover recordings without prior consent. He proclaims that “The person making these sound recordings must not make any modification to the literary or musical work which has not been previously made by or with the consent of the rights holder, or which is not technically necessary for the purposes of making the recordings. sound.”.

Nonetheless, for all practical justifications, an individual can create remixes without permission, thereby mitigating the rights of the original owner. To this day, it is unclear whether the law apprehends remixes as covers under said law.

JURISPRUDENCE

Obtaining consent from the original manufacturer is consequential the business of Ganpati Aarti Ashtvinayak Geete, the defendant wanted to create audio tapes with reference to the Ganpati Aarti. He requested the original sound recording from the plaintiff and offered a license fee, but the plaintiff declined his offer and therefore consent was not granted on the plaintiff’s behalf. Nevertheless, the defendant purchased the sound recording for the manufacture of the cassettes which were then held as an act of infringement.

Working without the permission of the original owner will result in an offence: In Gramophone Company v Mars Recording, In this case, the court ruled that compliance with the requirements mentioned in article 52, paragraph 1, will not be considered an offense and that there will be no obligation to grant consent or a license.

In the case Super Cassette Industries Ltd v Bathla Cassette Industries Pvt Ltd, it was felt that as such no changes should be made to the vocalist’s voice as the voice is the soul of every song.

NEED AMENDMENTS

  1. the statutory license system: The license that must be obtained to play any remix song must be updated.
  2. Royalties: the royalties to be paid to the original owner of the song should be prescribed because the cost of the royalties to be paid is not mentioned in the law.

CONCLUSION

Copyright law protects the work of the artist/owner and gives the owner the right to sell and distribute their work. A remix song is only legal when the owner of the remix song gives notice via a notice stating their intentions behind the remix song and pays a royalty to the original owner. It may sound simple, but there are few loopholes in the law that require rectification, as the requirement for copyright protection increases in the music industry. With the changing trend in the music industry, the laws and regulations also need to be changed to meet the need of the industry. A clear definition of a remix song must be proclaimed with the specific cost of the royalty that must be paid to the original artist so that the freedom of the owner is not exploited.

Whether you’re creating a personal mash-up for your playlist or gearing up to spin your first set at the club, your remix could turn out to be worth a royal ransom if a copyright owner sues you for infringement. Creating a remix is ​​a much more complicated legal matter than just using a segment in one of your songs. Now why is this happening? Well, when you create a remix, you produce something which is popularly known as “derivative work.” To record a derivative work, you must obtain consent from the owner, specifically the artist or label that owns the master recording and the person/company that owns the publishing rights to the song. There are some steps you need to follow to create a legit remix from copyrighted music:

  1. Buy a copy of the song(s). Pirated music is always illegal regardless of its effortless availability.
  2. Obtaining consent from the copyright holder. Each segment of recorded music has at least two copyrights: first, for the song and second, for the master recording. You must obtain permission from both copyright holders.
  3. Maintaining an authorization file. It is essential to have a paper trail indicating that the copyright holder has authorized you to make a remix of their song.
