Why you won’t be hearing Le’Andria Johnson, Amber Bullock and Trin-i-tee 5:7 on the radio anytime soon

Radio One has decided to ban all music related to Matthew Knowles and Music World Music. This means that artists like Le’Andria Johnson, Amber Bullock, Juanita Bynum, Trin-I-Tee 5:7, Brian Courtney Wilson, Vanessa Bell Armstrong, and Micah Stampley probably won't be airing on your local radio station.

According to an article posted on EURweb, TV One is suing Music World Music, BET and MTV for violating its exclusive rights to the Essence Music Festival. Apparently, Music World Music and TV One had an agreement that granted TV One the exclusive rights to broadcast the Essence Music Festival. That agreement was allegedly broken when content was issued to BET and MTV. 

Since, Matthew Knowles and Music World Music have violated their agreement with TV One, their sister company Radio One, has pulled all Music World Music artists from their rotation.

Radio One owns 12 gospel stations across the country. Yes, there are other stations that will play these artists' music. However, not being played on the largest urban radio network is pretty significant. 

In my opinion, this hurts Le'Andria Johnson and Amber Bullock the most. It is important for a new artist to get as much airplay as possible. 

Is this the end of the world for Music World Music and its artists? No. Is this a small setback? Yes. 

We just recently discovered that Music World Music was dominating the charts. If these issues with Radio One/TV One are not resolved, it is likely that we will begin to see Music World Music artists slide down the charts.
