MemphisRap.com has relaunched its music website with a brand new online music charts located at http://music.memphisrap.com. The new online music charts have brand new features including a display of the Top 40 artist songs this week, a display of their rank last week (showing how far they have climbed or dropped), and a display of how many days they have appeared on the charts much like the Billboard Charts we know today, but more focused on the Independent artists of the South. The MemphisRap.com music charts, doesn’t display the artists with the highest soundscan sales, but yet displays the artists that are fans favorite.
“I feel like most of the services that we introduce for Independent music artists focuses more on connecting the Independent artist with the fans first to create the buzz that will lead to bigger and better things, because without the fans no artist would be where they are today. With this in mind, the music charts will give up and coming artists the ability to put their music out there and see what songs the fans like the most and will give record labels the chance to see who are the hot up and coming artists that are going over well with the fans. This is valuable to the independent artist and independent labels wishing to create a large fan base by getting quality exposure to a targeted audience of Southern rap fans such as the one million plus visitors to MemphisRap.com each month”, stated M Town Luv, Director of MemphisRap.com.
“Along with the great artist and label websites and Top 40 Music Charts, MemphisRap.com will be bringing some great new features for the members of MemphisRap.com. We are very proud to introduce all our new features including our new video streaming feature allowing artists to upload their own music videos or any of their videos to their website. At a later time we’ll be launching our Top 40 Video Charts where fans will once again be a vital part in determining what and who will be in the Top 40. With this comes MemphisRap.com’s membership program meaningfully entitled I-Club short for Industry Club. The I-Club is MemphisRap.com’s premium membership which offers independent artists and labels professional multi-media marketing services”, states Charla Littlejohn, Online Media Director.
When asked about the name Industry Club, M Town Luv stated, “We chose the word Industry Club because it’s more than just websites online and services for more than just artists. Managers, DJ’s, promoters and basically everyone in the Industry can benefit by being a part of our club. It helps support our goal which is to help support our artists and labels connect to an international audience of fans and along side our Music Club will give fans and industry people discounts and special offers within our online shopping catalog. The E-store is set to re-launch December 2005.”
MemphisRap.com has other numerous upcoming projects for the new year including a print calendar inconjuction with its sister site MemphisHoneys.com which will be available in 2006. In addition to the calendar, MemphisRap.com states they will begin the recording of the MemphisRap.com Compilation album featuring the winners of the 2005 MemphisRap.com Urban Music Showcase and more. The next MemphisRap.com Urban Music Showcase that fans and artists have been impatiently awaiting may or may not be held at their upcoming 5th year anniversary celebration in 2006, according to Director M Town Luv.
