Week 11: Mary Jane and Dani, Sitting in a Tree
K... I... S... S... I... N... G...
LOS ANGELES, CA Sunday Jun.18.2006 /FantasyMusicLeague.com/ -- Some people think Dani California sounds similar to Mary Jane's Last Dance, others don't agree, but most agree Dani California is a hit. We'll see what develops with a possible lawsuit for ripping off Tom Petty. Wonder if people will love it less if he sues?
Red Hot Chili Peppers hold the top spot on both the Alternative and HotAC eTracks. They also hold the top spot for highest revenue earned this week. Daniel Powter is sitting on top of the CHR eTracks, was number two on HotAC, and ranked number two in revenue this week. Tim McGraw may be number one on the Country eTracks, but was seventeenth in revenue. It pays to have your artists on multiple charts at one time. Mary J. Blige ranked fourth on revenue this week, it helped that she was on top of the Urban eTracks, twelfth on Hot AC, and fourteenth on CHR.
Best and Worst
The Red Hot Chili Peppers topped the most signed artist this week and paid off for the labels that hold them. Bon Jovi was dumped by the most labels, followed by Fall Out Boy, guess they "fell out of favor".
Cassie and Eric Church joined the eTracks this week, sneaking in at 15th on the Urban eTracks and 19th on the Country eTracks. This is the last week of the season that will allow your label to earn the Debut Bonus when you sign a debuting artist and hold them for two weeks.
Diamond Bonuses are awarded in the 13th week of each FML season. Work your magic so your label grabs every revenue dollar your artists can generate. To clarify a question by one of the players. The Gold and Platinum Bonuses aren't only awarded in weeks 4 and 8. If before the week 9 signing deadline you sign an artist and they're on any of the eTracks for weeks 9, 10, 11 and 12, then in the 12th week you're awarded the Gold Bonus.
And, don't forget to register your label for next season. Invite your friends and coworkers to play by sending them your personal referral link (it's posted on the 'my referals' page). You'll accrue 200 points for each direct referral and 100 points for each indirect referral, once you've accumulated 2,500 points we send you a check for $25. Checks for those players who passed the 2,500 point mark will be sent with this season's prizes.
