    STEP 4:
    Get CD professionally pressed up

    STEP 5:
    Promote your music (Posters, performances, fliers, street team, etc) to build a “buzz”

    STEP 6:
    Send an email to Talya Johnson with song title and all appropriate
    membership ID numbers for Library of Congress, ASCAP, BMI etc.

    STEP 7:
    Call and/or email Talya Johnson to schedule an appointment for music day

    You MUST submit your registered song for review to us a week prior to your appointment via email to tajohnson@radio-one.com.
    The subject line of the email MUST include your artist name,
    scheduled date and time of appointment.

    The visit to the Radio station is the final step!
    You should already be performing, gaining a fan base, developing a strong
    social media presence and promoting registered music!

    *** PLEASE NOTE***


    Your music is competing with current national chart topping R&B and Hip Hop artists!

    (example: Alicia Keys, Lil Wayne, Miguel, Rihanna, T.I. etc.)

    The music MUST be of the same caliber and better to be considered for airplay!
