Dame has hinted throughout the end of 2017 that the Top 10 will definitely have some changes. The question is what changes? Who moves up? Who moves down? I know there will be more of a focus on how much music is sent in. For example, if a producer only sends five beats a month it will be harder to stay in the Top 25, versus a lower ranked producer that is sending in a more consistent 10-25 beats per month. Also, a few artists are GUARANTEED to drop out the rankings, who might they be? Does Rion Richard hold on to the #1 spot or does he drop out of the Top 5? When the new rankings are revealed for the new year, I am sure we will be blown away from all of the surprises. Also, be sure to pay attention to green & red trending marks in the rankings which indicate whether a producer is going to move up or down.
I have been involved with Monster Sessions for the past 7 months, including sitting in on numerous A&R panels with the team in Irvine, demoing production from all of you. I know all of you very well indirectly, as well as what's going on here at Monster A&R. I am looking forward to hearing more and helping you all spread your wings in 2018.
