Jade on iTunes

Postby samDavenga » Fri May 06, 2011 1:55 pm

Hey all,
I was wondering why Jade can't have her Jade Valerie, Saint Vox and Eternity8 albums on iTunes like Jamie can. It confuses me. As if Jade doesn't deserve it...
I'm so confused lol. :|

It's all to do with labels. Sony Japan (to the best of my knowledge) don't make their releases available on iTunes and I have seen compilations where there is a sony artist on the CD that it is missing from the iTunes versions. From what I've seen, Jamie's Sweetbox releases are actually made by Paramusic USA (even the original Japanese album on iTunes Japan)

Jade said that it has to do with licensing issues but I don't understand how she can be 'forbidden' or whatever, but what do I know? I'm sure if it were possible, it would have happened a long time ago. But there has to be some loopholes since MCY was able to release his songs with her.

Remember though John that it the MCY songs are probably something different again cause that will be another label and that was something she did on the side, so i don't know if that's matters (i.e. it wasn't MCY Feat Sweetbox, it was credited as Jade Villalon)

Awwwww :crying:

I thought this was a thread about how Jade was now available on iTunes, I was gonna go buy it, despite having a physical copy already.

But if that's the case, then why was Addicted allowed to be released? That's always confused me.

Heiko Schmidt probably arranged for Addicted to be sold on iTunes since he owns the publishing rights to the songs through Parasongs. He could probably get the rest of the Sweetbox albums up on iTunes too, but for some reason that hasn't happened. Even then Jade probably doesn't get many royalties if any from Addicted's iTunes sales.

She really doesn't get very much from her Sweetbox days at all now does she? That seems a little...jaded.

I'm under the impression that artists don't make a lot from sales on iTunes (I believe iTunes themselves take quiet a cut)

And that is why singles on iTunes have now been raised to $1.29. Most of the world - if not the whole - complained about it like it was some tax hike or something. If anything, artists deserves the whole of the $1.29 and more but this does get them more than 10 cents anyway. And if the singles sells well, then boom. Still, it's sad when you do the reality check of how much they get per song alone.

As much as I'd hate for Jade to not get any royalties from the sweetbox albums, I wish Heiko Schmidt would release all her albums not just in the USA but worldwide just so I can recommend my friends who buys regularly on iTunes. It comes to a dead end when I say "Well, you can buy it off eBay".

Well a majority of artisit's money comes from doing tours and shows, not much is actually made off of cd sells. So if the world was perfect and Jade's stuff was released internationally and it caught on she could make big bucks by doing concerts, but I'm sure money isn't that much of an issue
