How often in your life have you discovered a fantastic song from an artist you’ve barely heard of before, only to be let down by their subsequent songs?
There have been many cases of one-hit wonders out there; artistes who get their names stuck in the bright lights just for that one single hit, only ending up being non-existent as the years go by. It truly is a vicious cycle; the music industry. You work hard, you make it big. However that doesn’t end there. Music is not limited by one single track and we believe that no one deserves to be defined by a single anthem. Instead, once you’re ‘big’, you’ve to work even harder and make it even bigger than before; churning out more hits for the masses to love.
Last week on A Laneway Adventure, we introduced to you 14 hits; a piece each from those gracing our shores next January. We picked only the best, each track resonating the artiste at its finest. Yes, it being the best, this was the one track that shot them to wherever they are now. Their journey doesn’t end there though. The next few tracks should define whether an artiste be a proven success or a one-time fluke. Last week we gave you the best. This week, we bring to you an array of other hits.
Here is Part 02; Once More.
These are the few songs that would prove that none of the 14 destined for Laneway Singapore are one-hit wonders. These are the few songs that would get you to sit up and take notice. These are the songs that would make you plug-in your earphones and listen to the them, once more. Proving that the first and best was not their only, expect a showcase of sheer talent.
Get ready to experience the best, Once More.
Here is our playlist on 8tracks: A Laneway Adventure 02; Once More.
