Why music has lost its sparkle

2015-10-29 06:00

We are caught up in the reflection of what music used to be. In this day time, the music industry is not about music anymore, it’s more about who you are or what you can do differently. It is how you represent yourself and what makes you unique. This is because people no longer buy music, they buy the brand.

Times have changed and music is not the same. People who can’t even sing make money with this so-called music; it’s all about what catches the eye, than what you do behind the mic. Music is the Art of expression; it is what feelings sound like because when words fail, music speaks.

Music is meant to change lives, it is meant to relate to people and it is meant to speak the truth. People are caught up in scandals because music alone is not enough. Those scandal make people talk about you, listen to you and see you but who are you if your music doesn’t speak for itself.

It is time we re-write the rules of what is called “Good Music”, we are a lost generation and it is time we find ourselves and paint pictures that captures the heart with music. It is time we bring back melodies and sounds that bring hope, it is time we become real artist in the music industry. Tupac Shakur once said “I’m not saying I will change the world, but I guarantee with my music, I will sparkle the brain”
