i saw your reblog of sea's post and regarding your tags, why does stringer have expectations that are a bit unrealistically high? Don't get me wrong, i absolutely do think harry can get there with a bit of time and growth, but this just isn't the best market for his genre right now for numbers they want. Do you think it's because it's a distribution deal & they're not getting as much $$ as they would a 360 deal?
So, we’re talking about this post from @seasurfacefullofclouds and I my tags didn’t say unrealistically high. I do think Stringer wants Grammys for Harry. And I think that’s been pretty clear from the outset through the whole roll out. I think you’re mixing the idea of his Grammy chances with his commercial success. In this case, I actually think that the Academy may look more favorably on Harry’s album with less commercial success. I’ve believed for quite some time that they’re far more concerned with critical acclaim and awards with this album vs. vast commercial success. I know absolutely nothing about the $$ differential between a distribution deal and a 360 and how that impacts anything, so I don’t feel comfortable weighing in on that one.
