Entering The Industry

Globally there have always been the same concerns when talent enters the industry young. However, we’ve found a common theme throughout these concerns and that is; a lack of support, a lack of guidance and a lack of structure.

It seems that a curse is destined for some young artists, this curse is notorious due to the wayward paths of stars like Demi Lovato, Lindsay Lohan and even Michael Jackson. But this is definitely not the automatic future for all young talent. For those who are talented and passionate, this curse can be avoided. We know you have the potential to not only succeed but also succeed at an early age. You have the potential to go further than most others before you.

Keep on reading to discover some of our hot tips on how to make it big.

Have A Great Support System

This is paramount. It is what many of the wayward artists mentioned earlier were missing and what we here and Black One promise to provide; support and guidance. This business can be cutthroat. When you are young, being exposed to so much potential negativity and setbacks can be difficult and impactful.

What sets stars like Ariana Grande and Justin Timberlake apart from those who have been tainted by the notorious child star curse, is that they have teams which have their best interests at heart. They have families and friends who will be there for them when they don’t get that important callback. This is vital to your success.

Practice Practice PRACTICE

Making it into stardom takes practice and hard work. If you don’t study at all, it is next to impossible to make the most of your potential and perfect your talent, whether that be dancing, acting or singing.

Don’t just study icons who have gone before you, study your own talent and find out what makes you stand out from the crowd. We believe it is fundamental to begin this journey early so talent can locate their unique angle and voice.

While it may seem like success happens almost overnight, this is not the case. Hard work and dedication to your craft is essential to your success. That way, when your lucky break happens you will be ready and hungry to succeed.

Believe In Yourself

Making it in this industry is a strenuous journey. You need to believe in yourself so that the world can get the opportunity to believe in you too. Confidence is the key to your journey becoming a successful one.  Let’s face it, we all have weaknesses and successful pop stars are no different.

What’s your weak spot? How can you improve it? How can you capitalise this weakness into something that will make you a star?

Exposure

Big time agents and producers won’t turn up at your doorstep, so it is up to you to showcase your talent. Show the world what you can do.

Social platforms such as Youtube, Twitter and Instagram have been game-changers in the music business. They have been the catalysts in the careers of some of today’s biggest voices; Billie Eilish, 5 Seconds of Summer, Charlie Puth, the list is endless.

Who is to say you won’t be next?
