Who Is Francesco Yates? [Vid]

call-francesco-yates-new-music-review

If you were tuned into #TheEliteRadioShow awhile back then you would know how cool Francesco Yates really is.  I had the pleasure of interviewing him and he has one wise soul. Who would believe a then 17yr old would name Sam Cooke as one of his musical influences?!

When you listen to his music you’re pulled in by the musicianship, the maturity in his voice and the common practice of trying to figure out who he reminds you of. When you look at him and his massive hair your mind takes you back to the seventies, but when you read that he’s worked with Pharrell and Justin Timberlake is tweeting about him; you automatically figure he’s going to sound like Robin Thicke or event Justin. Francesco holds his own and brings a “new” thing back called singing…music…melodies…song writing…you get the point…I could go on, but I won’t.

I had the pleasure of hearing 5 unheard tracks produced by Pharrell Williams and Robin Hannibal. Once Yates’ full project is released, trust me, it’ll be worth every dime & dollar!

‘Tunnel Vision’ Returns to YouTube

 

The video ban on JT’s newest single is lifted from YouTube.

YouTube and Google have a strong history of banning videos quickly and swiftly. When it comes to controversial material from musicians, they have an obligation but sometimes artistic expression goes beyond just algorithms. With Justin Timberlake’s newest single, ‘Tunnel Vision’ off of the 20/20 Experience became a perfect example of that.

After initially yanking the video quickly after it surfaced, it looks like the tech giant has gone back on their algorithmic banning approach.

“While our guidelines generally prohibit nudity, we make exceptions when it is presented in an educational, documentary or artistic context, and take care to add appropriate warnings and age restrictions,” a YouTube representative said in a statement, via E! Online.

Google has come under fire in the past for their “un-biased” approach to certain situations. With this reversal, we may see the flood gates open with more and more content that comes with the explicit warning. “Blurred Lines” by Robin Thicke featuring Pharell and T.I. definitely proves these videos can be highly successful.

JT embarks on a summer tour with Jay-Z that kicks off July 17 in Toronto to promote this first album in seven years.
