In the TAXI community we have a saying, Write, Submit, Forget & Repeat. The “Forget” is the hard part. The point is, you have to write songs, submit them to opportunities and then move on to the next song/opportunity. You can’t waste time wondering and worrying about whether you get the placement or not. And this placement is a perfect example.
Years ago, I wrote this song, Boom Dynamite, with former Bad Boy producer Chucky Thompson. It was created for an artist that he was developing at the time. It was an exciting opportunity but it ultimately didn’t happen.
And now, years later, he’s working with Chinese R&B star Catina Mezereon and she ends up recording the song and it gets a major feature in choreographer Laurieann Gibson’s show: Beyond The Spotlight.
So, this is a reminder to myself – just keep writing, keep submitting. Then forget and repeat!!
