Talking With Jessie Reyez on Artists’ Growth and Staying Relevant in 2018 | GaryVee Business Meeting



I fuckin do music for real for real I gave you ride a day and you gave me games thank you thank you everything I really think you got a shot like for real I really do it's like it's funny like as we've been doing the music thing like the combination of Mike and I like Mike and actually that's actually unfair I think Mike really knows how to like pick it but there's something funny about the way I hear music that like I just genuinely understand the masses I just really think you have that kind of sound I can like really go how can we help you first of all thank you for including me in the playlist and thank you for Twitter because that's been like help already good anything that's organic I feel like hits it's super Sam my fans know like my audience is really cool cuz they know I'm not like I don't know you guys you're not doing anything for me like like if I'm saying it like I mean it you know what I mean like you know like it makes me happy like it's super fun like honestly it's no different than like all the startups there's something there's an amazing high I get from being on like everybody likes it like everybody loves discovering that band and they I think most people get mad at their favorite indie band when they go mainstream like you know people yeah you sold out like I'm the other way like just like dreaming of a day like in six years when you walk in here and everyone's freaking out I think that's cool we're sitting in the way you see it I don't know how much how much you see that then Instagram and Twitter and stuff like where do you think that we could like increase our presence are we lacking or like where do I think is number one thing I think boy brought it for like the number one thing I would do of where you're at right now is do collaboration songs with people outside your demo like tomorrow I would do a collab song with a country star tomorrow tomorrow tomorrow I would get a Latin trap – uh-huh tomorrow tomorrow I would I would get a a Latin trap person to sing the hook of a song here tomorrow now there's one big little asterisk you've got to fuck with it like you got to believe in it got it like if you're like this is wack I'm just doing anything correct but if you're like you know what I would do I would fucking make if I was them if I was part of team I'd make you listen to so much random shit because then you'd be like yo this fucking African shit is rad as fucking cool African shit come back and be like yo you got to do this with this person from fucking Ghana yeah you see where I'm going I think people grossly underestimate the collaboration to exciting people understand how much Taylor Swift's song with Kendrick Lamar matter to Kendrick Lamar's career but I don't think people really I think people think it would have happened anyway and I don't and you know what's crazy about hip-hop hip-hop itself the whole fucking genre took the next step because of the Aerosmith Run DMC collab the whole genre was not built because it was authentically amazing but it took there's nobody who's old like me like especially people in the game ask them it changed everything I think it's what I would do especially this early in your career if it's authentic I would do songs with other people that give you the upside of the awareness where it's a trade of fanbase so I think you are ridiculously talented so I think that somebody who's like a huge pop star who's fading or a midsize country star who's stuck they'll get the benefit of something that's amazing talent you'll get the benefit of like they have a much bigger audience it's just a fair trade I'd make a fair trade and I would probably not put it in a project like I'd probably just do it as one offs like I think a great way to like build your music career right now is you do mixtapes or like projects that are just like creative and like kind of strategic you do albums for albums and then you do one-off songs that are collaborations that are strategic and fun and different and our little curve balls to the audience like you doing a song with Backstreet Boys is exactly right today I'm being serious you know what I mean something that's like fucking like so off kilter to the mission I think musicians have unbelievable permission to do shit if it's the truth it's really a hundred percent right one if you were like oh my god I love Nelly Furtado because when you were a kid that song with Timbaland was so poppin and you loved it so much she's not killing the world right now but she's a real talent like just DMing her and be like yo you know what when I get it but I get like that and you know what else and you know what else there's people I replied to today that of DME 46 times and today was the day so trying comes in all shapes and forms to oh yeah oh it's true and that's what we're the other thing I would say is strike immediately if you see anybody that you fuck with like that like or comment on social like strike hard like there's always like a moment right like let's say like it's whoever right bless you LLS bless you LL Cool J right like if he likes a photo like you guys are like like one of the things that I think I always regret is not striking when it's hot because I'm so busy right now like I'm 18 months in to like Metro booming and Kevin Hart fucking with me on Instagram but Kevin Hart like today and I still haven't really like sat down and break bread with the rock I fucking figured it out got it done but like and like sometimes you just like six years later and you still haven't connected Kelly Rowland you know still oh I don't reach out to anybody even though I give that advice like now I meant like a place where cuz I'm doing a little bit different like if I was if I was doing music I was and if I was like if I was making content not documented content I would but man I'm telling right now in the second you see somebody a producer or an artist that you fuck with like or engage on Twitter you just like get a fucking plane and being like in fucking you know like masterpiece studio and fuck in Louisiana got it cuz it's right now it's the time to grind right now is the time to be like not fancy about nothing be like holy shit like we love Big KRIT he just like this DM you hit up you hit a Boyd or whoever the fuck you know your label I don't give a fuck you don't a full of crit and like yo we should do something and this is what everybody does yeah we should do something yeah yeah and then nine months later nothing happens when you're like we should do something and he's like yeah get the fuck on a fucking cheap red eyed 88 bucks and we fucking go like if somebody cool and fucking big gives you love strike you know the biggest thing that I've been playing with like an econ crit like a lot of good people have been sitting down like I'm like look you're an artist I'm not gonna tell you what the fucking do I'm even like scared to do it but I'd be lying if I didn't say like if you've got if you got music in youth all of it should come out differently fucking songs we would have from fucking Michael Jackson and Biggie and Prince and fucking The Four Tops if they had the technology we had today you imagine yep you know I think that it I'm gonna tell you something controversial I don't think there's enough music you got to give yourself every chance to do it do you know many people could have been the biggest artists in the world that weren't because they didn't get the right at-bats do you know many people do you know many artists right now could be John Legend but they took the one song that was the song off the album that's real life tell you that right now so you you but there's a lot of ways to do it like you know now you guys have so much luxury it can be an album it giving up the projects all these different names for this shit it's all the same shit like you could be a single one-off you can do a whole thing like called like but honestly I understand I really believe that is what I believe like if you and I like blue you're brother and sister and we were like fucking ghetto Dalek didn't know anybody didn't have all these good people around us I'd be like listen to me sis like fucking let's just put out song every day what and with our 87 followers on Instagram all you need is you'll get it I believe in that so I fuck with rust I think it's right I believe in it and here's why wherever Russ ends up is gonna be predicated on this talent but first you got to get the edge back the at-bat you gotta get the chance people like don't get it and also how good are you like for us as I keep listening he's gonna have to evolve his sound right cuz a lot of it sounds similar right I had to go through this I don't think Russ is done I think Russ is gonna have to Bob I did I can sound similar right for three months a year even 18 months and then shit will change you're gonna win if you're good enough cuz winners win in the end but you can't not give yourself the most chances to win that's what I believe and so like if you start a whole like maybe like it depends how much music sitting in your soul and sit how much you have I thought so straight up I thought so so honestly I think you need to do something called like so for so cool Saturday and just drop a fucking 52 songs if you got it like that I mean it keep aspire because where you're at right now by the 13th one it's building momentum and it just might be the one that you drop on September 6 and away you go it's like there's nothing the record like nothing will Trump the Internet the way that this one song isn't working one question that had because there's so many artists that were around and if we like okay they got four million followers by their followers on social media they're not really your presence and I heard his retort Carter from Spotify where he said he's like record labels and artists think that they broke but I bet you if I put that same artists in a high school the second kids would strengthen face always gonna know the forest and everything to go to inside it so my question is how do we get an artist like the stranger things kids by putting out more songs more content more stuff more more more more MORE if PB rock walked in here right now most people would have known hi great man reality it's just the same old thing man it's more I mean they're one song away logic song could have been the you know phone numbers song in the album oh and it could have been a song they put out one off it just works that way like a little baby's project right now is that an album or is that a mix tape doesn't even matter little baby oh yeah you know it's just here's why one girl in LA who like thinks you're pretty and thinks you're cool retweets it happens to be the fucking niece of fucking Rihanna's hairdresser they're sitting right like people don't get it you can't understand how real that is guys and then all of a sudden that hairdresser plays it I mean I was like what is that mom you know Rihanna is in the mood she's in the mood to like put somebody on for no reason other than she can and she does what fucking Kylie Jenner did with PMB rock and lip syncs one hook and your fucking life's over overnight figures times 4,000 plus you never know what its gonna come from like you've got the Megan and all the music stuff and then you got a 42 year old businessman who's got an audience that fucking fucks within that fucking like it helps you to like the amount of people that tell me like my cosign has been bigger for them than like real fucking like shit you know like stuff they were looking for Yeah right like you know Oh an eSports fucking eat gamer on Twitch fucks with you and just starts playing in the background happens to be ninja game over I'm about to be we built a huge twitch studio but you know what I mean you never know right doesn't matter two years from now Instagram and twitch today a two years from now fuck knows right blockchain may do this hey I may do that voice may do this here's what's up you have one song way I got 140 you should there's a Netflix documentary called the toys we grew up with you've watched it but you've seen it right you should find out who produces it deep email them and tell them to use figures in it because it's all about action figures and like like got it like got it just caught it be like listen we have this incredible artist we have incredible song that went viral for her it's called figures like we love action figures like you want to use it in the in like the background of like season 2 all of a sudden got people listening to it and they're just like I oh wait you know I just bring this up Good Charlotte Good Charlotte broke because I'm Adam so like how do you get your songs just heard best fucking cool house always the studio closed there it is we're closed yeah this twister yeah I'm gonna touch – no you're not – its Jesus crazy there's a I thought there was somebody there that was clean that's no Tyler Tyler's like my admin loved loves FIFA like loves it but yeah if you start playing twitch on FIFA like this is how my works you're doing that it's gets shared some fucking soccer player who plays in fucking Europe who's got 8 million fans like who's this pretty girl playing fuckin fever DMS you trying to creep you're like cool come you're like business you're like cool come and play with me now it's fucking now it's 18 million fucking people like this is why this is how my brain works this is how I think differently than I cool you got Europe from the fucking label cool my man the fucking soccer player has got 22 million people on fucking Instagram comes through when he's in LA and during the offseason of the European League after the World Cup please fucking FIFA with her takes the photo and it's game over you got all of Europe got it I was fuckin p.m. the fuck out of him and be like yo I'm sure he does a DM gonna be like yo let's fucking play fifa let's play twitch because people freaked but that's my strategy I'm bring like draymond Green he's done with the MB files he's coming to the office we're gonna play NBA jams I'm gonna play people in like this court that they do on until it's your old school because I don't play the new shoots like fucking double dribble from Nintendo huh I played it today but it's a new controller and I go fuck you know play Tony Hawk's fucking skateboard with Tony hockey now like it's so much coming for you you just need to fucking strike yeah one song away I believe that I mean you guys make like I have I'm always very careful with my overly aggressive like one song away because I have empathy like some people like you know the way they think of like like it's tough like I feel like I'm an artist as a businessman so I get like somebody who carefully curates 15 songs in their head it makes this perfect fucking story I just know that 99.9% of the time it doesn't for the end user it does when they tell them what it was about it's like you hear an album yo that's a great album then she goes on fuckin bt or fucking like you know a documentary or like fucking on the internet there's like yo this so the whole part of this album was like what I was going through during this week and oh but like not really like it was like you see where I'm going it's like Monday morning quarterbacking whereas like if you like just put out like like the one song away I just thought I will never waver from this because I know I'm right it's what the Internet's about in the same way that you should have made music videos in 1984 to 1987 and a lot of people didn't because if they thought it was giving away free music and I was taking away from sales I think you should make as many songs you got in your heart for Spotify and Apple music in as many different ways as possible the end it warm using and again like not play the game but like also watch legends like Howard elaziz and like build such to man but still not right listen Adele did got $100,000 ago would Adele would Adele do that in 2018 the end was finally got the one record though can't ever sleep and everything to get to that place so it's the one song need to get 100% people trying to get fancy before their fancy let's get our what it's a little bit of initiative this comes with nerves micromanagement yep what's your gesture to break out of that tomorrow if she trusts you based on that question she's got to let you do one thing that looks like micromanage and then she's got to see it's not that scary it's hard when it's you by the way the pulse of you like it's a lot easier to trust when you're not the product it's you so it's harder I get it like I don't fucking like let my like it's hard I do like like I won't even edit this this whole blog I want to look at it but but you know when you're the product it's harder than like anything else but yeah I mean like you you know depending on what you're actually talking about like scale only comes when you let go and when you realize the audience is the judge not you as long as you don't feel horrible about it as long as they're not telling you like yo you need to put on a clown suit and go perform at this Bar Mitzvah and sing Barbra Streisand make music for people you know why let me give you a real curveball there you're gonna think it's cool when you're old like when you're like your grandkids are gonna think it's cool like think about this you know we don't know what's gonna happen but do it when you can do it it's like imagine I'm gonna make it real simple let's play it the other way not about you about somebody else imagine the people that could have done collabs with Madonna and did it right you know the you're the guy you know what fucking Harris ones thinking right now that he said note that like he instead of going to studio and doing that song with biggie when Big E was on the way up he decided to just stay at home it's very true don't be fancy before the fancy that's exactly right got it that's what's up like that's why I keep meeting like people always like why are you meeting with like all these people like you should be meeting with other people you know that much time I'm like don't be fancy until you're fancy you know like I go from like the meeting range I go from I I want it like I have come to realize in the last three or four years like everything I thought was true is probably true which is like I'm I'm playing a fundamentally different game than almost everybody and like my goals break down in things one I want to have no regrets when I'm old big right so like I'm squeezing everything right number two I want to have the most people ever show up to a funeral of all time there's a very important thing about funerals it takes a lot for somebody to not do their normal day or what they're supposed to be up to and stop and travel to somebody's funeral I'm trying to figure out like I want my grandkids to just cry and be like and by then I tend like I honestly think I'm gonna be famous like real famous like honestly and I still think I do I think I'll be real real famous right I still think I'll have more people at my funeral than anybody thinks because there's a reason I'm becoming famous and it's not because I can sing or because I pretty or because I am good at basketball the only reason people fuck with me is because I'm bringing them value mentally you know like it's a totally different wreath like you have to understand the reason musicians are so big like the escapism that music does for people is all-time it doesn't for me the reason I got real hype this weekend was cuz I just listened to fuckin teat Risley I remember like over and over like 400,000 like I listened to it for 11 hours in the last four days 11 hours hey cuz that's how I get because T grizzly is gonna win because of the opening line of that song which is like you know I still think of 50 50 dollars a lot of money all three of you will regret if you don't squeeze the fuck out of this for the rest of your life if you don't pop that's super real which is why I like every clap every song like he'll just regret it I don't notice to tell you you will I know you're too far you're too far along it's too special it's too obvious you know there's nobody sitting here that doesn't know she's a star I just know millions of stars never made it I believe that I fucking believe that when you were because every teenager goes through it when they're kind of like this so uh so that was different like like so here's what happened with me as a teenager that's played out here I answered a question better there are very few teenagers that ever live their life the way I did which is I couldn't hear anybody man I couldn't can't tell you just I can't tell you this like I didn't hear anybody meaning think about high school and like a kid like everybody's opinions matters too much I just valued nobody's opinion but mine I was in my own head and not like we are like I'm super social and like not the awkward like like super outwardly like normal like I'm unbelievably socially like everybody liked me I just couldn't hear you I think that I think both I think my mom brainwashed me that I was the best and thus I was like yo I don't care like like yeah I was like I'm not gonna like like when people like you got a drink this to be cool like I don't value those people enough but I love you like I and I see that you're cool and you're pretty and you're cool and you're the most popular but like fuck you like I'm not fucking drinking beer if I don't wanna drink beer like my four best friends in college like these are my homies their only goal life was to get me to take one hit from one blunt one time in four years and I didn't do it yeah that was like the and let me think about the silliness of that yeah like you know what I mean like I just don't want to that was it like lines of this so to answer you I what happened it happened god I don't even know when it happened or how it happened but for some reason I just never let peer pressure come in in any shape form I was doing such crazy shit I was like in high school like going to like the dollar store buying shit and selling it and like I do baseball cards shows in the mall and like all my friends are like when you're a sophomore in high school you're like trying to do it like you know like and I'm like sitting in the mall like trying to sell baseball cards and like I know my friends and they're like even like girls that kind of like me in high school like like why are you like don't do that thank you and I was like fuck you like I'm doing me and I've always been that way and I think now it's playing out where what's really manifest is like that's the game the game is like to do everything for you for them you got a like I always think about being selfish to be selfless I think I'm so selfish in my own shit that then it allows me to like that's why I can give so much because I'm not looking for any I'm not looking for anybody to give me validation I'm not very validated that means I've already moved on to the next part I feel like I'm old does that make sense I feel like I'm 90 like you know like 90 rows like don't give a fuck no more like that's you know like they're like I'm old like what are you gonna say like fuck you what's that had to summarize it wasn't a single piece of advice it was a process that my dad put me through when I was 14 or 16 that said whether it is fine my dad taught me word is bond and I'm gonna give back money gaveta I was trying to do music and do sessions and the interviews and one of the mentors and Ricky he was like honestly doesn't have to resume through what you said earlier we really got to be selfish to be so deep become huge and music you do everything your hundred honestly that's exactly right like I want to capture everybody's attention on earth so that I can make an impact like like I know I'm right I want legacy honestly just just to answer you I want legacy I want nothing else man like honestly I don't want any more money other than if I make enough money to buy the Jets it's gonna inspire everybody because I'm gonna have 30 years of content saying I'm gonna do it and then I do anything to be like Olli she's like it to be so like crazy other than that and knowing like then I'll get a movie about me and like you know like you know the boy that bought the jet you know you know like but like you know other than that it was funny I was in my house out east and I was looking at the the sweater that my mom needed me cuz I couldn't even afford Jeff's Jersey that was a just I was looking at was like I'm fucking just had it like a moment of myself I'm like I'm gonna fucking do this I'm gonna fucking do it but that's more about the chase you know that's kind of like if I was an artist that's more like I'm gonna win 11 Grammys that's what we're about just like doing like that see more but get yeah it's a game but for real for real the funeral you know the funeral like that means you won like you know many people make 48 million dollars and eight people if their fucking funeral like I want people like I want people don't know don't even know why they're at my funeral they're like I want people like mingling with each other and be like why are you here I'm like my grandma made me come because in 2018 she watched a video and she left my grandpa who was abusing her and she built a business you don't real shit real shit and I guess what I get in DMS all day like Marie oh my DM is a real shit right heavy shit yeah but like mute the reason I think I'm gravitating towards music is I recognize for me to pull off all my ambitions I need the biggest pillars in our culture in our lives and music is one of those sports I actually think that fashion is one but that doesn't come natural to me these are cultural players you know thinners like things like religion things that nature but that's almost like a different thing but like music and sports I want to die a legend or wannabe able to fight that alarm I wanna have a myself I want to get to orphanage in the name of after my mother and I'm gonna help with my people it is years ago you can really you can really do that but your one song away from that everything you just said your one song away from being dip fucking series of you let me go no no stick with me stick with me everything you just said like you can add things later but like everything you just rattled off the fucking farm the Grammys the million people you're one song away logics fucking song reached more than a million people if you don't think that fuckin hotline song impacted a million people easy million millions one song way that's what's up like honestly I wish probably in a lot of ways subconsciously unconsciously that I could sing or rap because like the way I communicate I can make viral videos but fucking I'd have seven did you see what a t grizzly and Tara said about when I was like oh you're not in the text you see what they said I'm like texting and I'm like lyrics this is just like random ship and I would make videos about yeah and it was funny and I was sitting there I was like that makes so much sense that they think that cuz like it's all the same shit just spinning his own lyrics he did sound like I couldn't make that connection I listened the drink I didn't make that connection but like I know that it's all the same shit back to the fine line your one song away from everything you just said like I I think I put some in sir in that poster yet the I'm gonna I didn't we didn't make that post yet I tweeted it but we don't the ominous shove positivity down your throat we nobody made it yet can you know I'm like I'm like literally twitted yes sir I'm like I'm gonna shove positivity down your collective throats like for the rest of time for my life period and a story because it's the truth like how blessed we are fuck are we doing here real shit how much your fucking denim jacket costs like you know it's like more than my like family made in like two months like I might fucking dinner bills so I didn't with my parents the other night right I didn't with my parents like a month ago which is rare just the four of us right the dinner bill was more than our rent for the first two years we lived in America fuck are we doing here like nobody in America should complain about nothing no my dad we had a family liquor business that's where I started and he still goes in the liquor store today causing ruckus and my mom was always stay at home she's just being a grandma and just like fucking she fucking worked her face off man like no help three kids like fucking we didn't do shit she did laundry clean like old school like fuck she was a maid what's that Belarusian oh you know lack of entitlement and what gets fucked up is you can get caught like all these crazy things happening for you lose sight you know I'm running it not me but everyone's different right like everyone learns different everybody you know I definitely you know it's funny back to this t grizzly song I'm not kidding it was interesting how much it motivate I was like okay wait a minute this is good like it's cool to see an outside source bring me some value like I'm in my own shit I just can't not know my perspectives to off the fucking shark like my perspectives a 30 on the 10 scale every second in my life I think got it it's the same answer to the last question I don't need a tactical thing to ground me I'm grounded no you know what I mean it is you know what I mean like the same way that I breathe oxygen I fucking know it's great and I'm thankful and grateful as fuck and I know I'm the best and I know I mean shit neatly I gave you ride a day and gave me gay

Im constantly writing music and put it out there for people to read in social media. I was producing music and pretty much got robbed for it. It got weird when i was hearing my sound in the radio with no credibility behind it due to bak room deals i had no idea of. So I stopped producing for someone I thought of as my brother. I stopped going to his studio altogether. I always been private in a way and kinda want to stay that way. I just got so much musik inside me with no way to produce music anymore because I don’t know the industry and trust issues now so i chose to just write music n sometimes when i feel strong about issues I’ll write towards that subject n post it. My word play is strong af n gotten asked about my lyrics. Heard some of my bars out there due to it I guess idk. This isnt me asking for help or advise. This is feedback to this awesome video and proof that you are solid in your belief not to mention smart and on point with this shit.

    This kind of reminds me of what T-Pain is doing with his T-Mixes! Great advice around the 3 and 4 minute mark!

    Hey Vayner Nation,

    I feel comfortable enough to ask this question as i know the community is super helpful 🙂

    I'm 26 years old and live in London, UK, my dream is to start a UK festival around my passion hip hop music as well as other genres.

    The problem ( OR ) opportunity depending how i look at it on the day is i only have a few grand saved up which isn't enough to get me started up. However that's no excuse as the Internet/Technology today has changed everything.

    So i wanted to ask the community what do you think the best way for me to get started is? I'm thinking about starting a blog to build a large targeted audience, provide them value, become a minor authority, monetize the blog and eventually build enough revenue this way and start the production/concerts /festivals company.

    Anyway other ways you think i could go about this to get the company started? or tips? or ideas for festivals/concerts and events blog topics?

    All ideas and comments welcome. Thanks so much

    I really don't feel her man. She sounds like 4 other female artist right now, can anyone tell me WTF is up with that style of singing?

  • Clifford Waite says:

    Yes, Jessie Reyez has a unique voice and I like her songs. Whether she writes her own lyrics or not, the lyrics in her song resonate with me…

  • WhateverItTakesMotivation says:

    EXCELLENT insight here for music artists and for ALL content creators. I love the conversation on the difference between "Stranger Things" fame versus internet fame. ❤️ all of your interviews with music artists. Keep em coming! 😄👌

    She is so pretty

    Hi Gary, I completely love your attitude. I introduced your videos to a guy who I've helped give a life purpose to (his wife left him for his best friend 12 years ago) Now he finally sees a reason to get up in the morning, go out and be happy. He is helping to achieve my dream, by learning business and helping to book me to sing for events. You are making a huge difference to our lives. Thank you, Love Gemma Louise Doyle

  • Mind Now says:

    How awesome is it that Gary is so FREAKING open minded and helping anyone he can! He genuinely has an awesome heart. You can see that he sees the potential in her and wants to help her get big instead of just focusing on himself.

    We love you Gary <3

    Winny out…for now 😉

    A great example of putting out music is Gucci. Arguably the greatest comeback of all time, putting out project after project. Every song on every project isn't a banger, but each song is an at bat. Put out enough "good" content, something good is bound to happen eventually.

  • Milton Jose says:

    Love, love, love Jessie Reyez. Been listening to Body Count non stop.

    Gotta love it!

    this is so informative. I'm in a place in my life right now where I'm trying things out without expertise yet but once I have enough experience to have confidence in my work, I know what to do :))

    He contradicted himself so many times

    Finally! I've been waiting on this one.
