Not many realize this, but personally the Ban on sexually explicit songs and songs promoting violence is the best thing that could ever happen to dancehall. What artists need to do is capitalize on this opportunity and push to create clean songs, doing this will ENSURE airplay on all if not most of the radio stations. The competition isn’t as tight now as it was a couple months ago when the Ban was not in effect, but now that it’s active, there isn’t much competition (if you listen to the radio stations you’ll realize there isn’t many new songs being played), basically because there isn’t much ‘clean’ songs to play on the radio, so most DJ’s are going retro and playing old songs, because majority of the news songs are plagued with sexual and violent lyrics, and obviously that isn’t allowed to be broadcasted.
There’s 2 things they can do:
1. They can try and fight this decision, which they will probably will never win; wasting time not capitalizing on this opportunity OR
2. They can go into the studios and start producing some awesome songs ( a song can still be good and not be plagued with expletives) for public consumption, it’s simple really, if your songs are clean then you’ll get airplay, majority of the dancehall artists plan to fight this and continue with the old foolish ways, but the smart ones will do what i say and capitalize on this golden opportunity.
The latter being the most logical thing to do, is the most prudent thing to do, follow these words and reap the rewards
