WK 3: I Hate Myself in the Morning
C About Me
BOSTON, MA Friday Oct.21.2005 /FantasyMusicLeague.com/ -- The FML Insider's got the digital juice: Meet the debut FML artist who's been told he can 'sing the underwear off my wife', which singer's been forced to rest his voice, and finally why 'There's More Where that Came From'.
If You Were Mine
The latest heartthrob causing teen girls hearts to flutter is Latin pop and R&B 24-year-old Marcos Hernandez. He describes himself as a Latin kid, raised on Motown, who likes anything from rock, to country, to merengue, to soul, to Spanish guitar music. Hernandez was signed to a music label after a music executive heard him singing and exclaimed that he could, "sing the underwear off my wife!" With affirmations like that it shouldn't be a surprise that his single 'If You Were Mine' off his debut disc "C About Me" is making a mark on the FML.
Ten Thousand Fists
The only other debut FML artist this week is the heavy metal band Disturbed. Frontman David Draiman has developed quite a reputation for making provocative, hard core metal music as well as being quite the ladiesman. At the end of every show, after he has won over all the ladies in the crowd, he handpicks one for what can only be called after-hours amusement. Meanwhile this hard core rocker has been suffering from various vocal cord trama. And just last week Draiman postponed the remaining dates of the Disturbed European tour because of vocal-cord inflammation.
Next week the FML gets Gold Bonuses. So pick'em right. Bon Jovi's cheap signing price of $1 million would have earned you an increase of 287 percent in revenue generation for your fantasy label. Meanwhile if you were one of the folks who bought Tim McGraw or Avril Lavigne for a whopping $24 million each, you walked home with zip, nada, zero, a big fat goose egg….you get the picture.
There's More Where That Came From
Lee Ann Womack proves that with the release of her sixth album, with singles like 'I May Hate Myself in the Morning,' this mother of two still can sing a country booty-call song. Lee Ann Womack saw a 444 percent increase in revenue generation this week for the lucky label that bought her. But the artist with the biggest revenue increase this week is Sugarland. This week the country trio, Sugarland, found a 500 percent in money making power. This isn't a big surprise since their debut album, Twice The Speed of Life, is getting tons of accolades, not to mention the runaway eTrack success of the single "Something More."
