  3. Someone as probably said this before. But i think that artist and the label should be able to decide whether or not they want to do the features and it not just happening randomly. Adele never does features but in the game she’s the most featured artist in several of my saves! All I’m Saying is that we should be able to reject requests to feature on someone’s album and other AI controlled artistes should be able to do the same. And for the festivals, we should also accept and reject requests!

  4. I think this has been mentioned before, but I really think unsigned artists should be able to release music independently. Maybe the AI could only use earnings, to invest in producing music? I think this would aid with half the database being unsigned, and all unsigned talent just sit there. I’ve dropped artists that I got bored with, and they never get resigned, despite being some of the best selling artists in the current game. It would also be interesting to watch an unknown, independent artist get on the charts on their own and maybe get signed.

  5. The X Factor show is really cool feature but I think it needs to be revisited to make better. The first thing I’ve noticed is that X-Factor contestants have a lot of missing info if you sign them, such as ethnicity. I also think it would be cool to see them get signed. A lot of them, including winners, never do anything after their season. It could be interesting to see them get signed and do well after being on the show. It’s realistic that a majority of them don’t do much after X-Factor, but I think at least a couple would be successful after. Judges should also be on there longer than a season or two. Maybe add an audience popularity to judges, based on how well their contestants do on the show? This way, judges stay longer. I had an artist be a judge on the show. And someone that was on her team won all three seasons she was on the show. I think it would make sense that X-Factor would want to renew her contract for more seasons. I think it’d also be cool to add in Syco Records, which also signs a few past X-Factor contestants. Possibly adding past suggestions for unsigned artists to release music independently may also help with this. And maybe the finalists’ potential singles actually get released as singles. It would also be interesting if contestants had past music released before being on the show, possibly independently released music?

  7. Anytime you go to run an .exe file and it vanishes, that means you antivirus software is quarantining it for some reason. You'll need to go into whatever antivirus you're running and whitelist it. Also, make sure you set it to run as Administrator. The game is safe btw so your antivirus is flagging it incorrectly.

  8. 2026: Ready For It was a commercial success making it Olivia’s first song to ever peak and debut at #2 on The Billboard Hot 100. Ready For It remained stable and stayed #2 for a fitting three weeks consecutively. Many considered this a flop for Olivia as if she was losing her touch in career. As she released second single off her album “End Game ft. Jay Z and Kanye West” this single debuted at #1 with 610,000+ copies sold first week making it the highest selling #1 song in the US. End Game finished the year string being the 10th most streamed song in 2026 and the 10th most bought. She also released other singles from this album. She gained 3 #1’s from this album alone which was genuinely concerning considering the amount of success Insatiable generated many of Olivia’s fans and the general public consider this “Olivia’s flop era” or third album slump. On July 13th 2026. Noire was finally released. Noire debuted at the top of the album charts generating 240,292 first week making it again the highest first week for a album in the U.S making Olivia the first ever artist to take back a chart record (Timbaland held the record at the time). Noire also submitted the charts for 9 weeks similarly to Insatiable with having the same weeks consecutively as Insatiable. It was the third most streamed album of 2026 closing out the year. Noire also won 2 Grammys in 2027 for “Best Pop Vocal Album” & “Album of the Year” giving Olivia her 4th Grammy of her career and her first ever “Album of The Year” Grammy. Olivia also took “NOIRE” on the road generating 4.480M tickets sales making Olivia the first to break her own record of the highest attended tour ever she also is the only person ever to hold the #1 and the #2 spot for highest attendances on Concertmaster. 2027: In this year Olivia took a refreshing break and during this break Olivia simultaneously wrote and teased 2 projects one named “Silver Lining” and another called “2003”. “2003” was the first one released. “2003” was a featureless album with pop synth sounds of the late 2000’s while “Silver Lining” was a pop edm country album with 2 features that consist of Marshemello and Jay Z. Olivia also planned 2 tours simultaneously for both albums. “2003” was the first album released. 2003 was released September 6th, 2027 while Olivia planned to release Silver Lining a following 1 day and 6 months after the record. 2003 went on its opening week to do 263,654 sales. Olivia again broke her record as the biggest opening week in US history for an album. The album remained at its peak of #1 for 10 weeks consecutively. Extending Olivia record as having the most weeks at #1 on the Billboard Hot 200 with 28 weeks at the time! The 2003 World Tour also went onto do 4.474M in ticket sales making it the second highest attended tour of all time. Making Olivia the first ever artist to have the 1st, 2nd, 3rd highest attended shows ever in history. Olivia took the remainder of the rest of the year promoting the album closing out the year with a AMA award and preparing for the release of the follow up Silver Lining

  9. original character faceclaim: byun baekhyun Baek Jinyoung (born May 06, 1994), better known for his artistic name elated, is a South Korean singer-songwriter and actor. He was born in Busan and lived there until the age of twelve when he moved to the United States to live with his father. He created his Youtube channel at fourteen, posting endless covers of songs he loved, in hopes of joining an agency back in his home country and debuting as a soloist. Jinyoung went back to Busan at the age of sixteen after his grandmother's death and finished his education there, graduating high school and planning on going to college. However, in early 2014 someone uploaded a side-by-side comparison of his ballad cover of Demi Lovato's Heart Attack and the singer's performance. The reaction to his talent was explosive overseas. So, Jinyoung moved back to Los Angeles after signing his exclusive contract with Diamond Records. Under his full name, in 2014 alone, Jinyoung featured in over 15 tracks with several underground artists connected to his label. Out of all these collaborations, "Teach Them How" from Hernan Keilty, released October 30th, was the only one that managed to chart of Billboard Top 100 at #98, making it Jinyoung's first entry. In October, 2014, through Keilty, Jinyoung met the American influencer Deanna Harrower and they began officially dating in November. He began officially working on his solo music not long after it. ⸻ 2015: Debut, ECSTATIC, Commercial Success... Jinyoung began his promotions for his upcoming single in December, appearing on podcasts, radio shows, and television. That same month, he announced he'd be releasing music under the stage name: elated. On January 19th, 2015, the single 'all i got' was released. It's a slow, vocal-heavy R&B track about devoting yourself completely to your lover, in the hopes of earning the same from them. It reached #1 Worldwide, selling over 3.5 million (counting physical, digital, and streaming) in just three weeks. At the end of that same month, it was confirmed elated and Deanna Harrower had broken up. In February, elated featured in Jason Mraz's Bombtrack and Alyssa Brelsford's Collides With Beauty. In early March, it was reported 'all i got' had sold over 8 million copies (counting digital, physical and streaming sales). On March 30th, elated released his second single 'cry for love'. The song continued the story started in the singer's first single, with elated confessing to crying for the lack of love he so desperately craved. It reached #1 on Billboard, selling 1.2 million in its first week. The single's explosive success shot Jinyoung further into stardom. During one interview on his first week promoting cry for me, the singer was asked whether or not the song was written about his past relationship with Harrower. Baek Jinyoung said, "Hm, it's funny you ask. I can see why people would think that. The timing was definitely something, huh? But yeah, no, definitely not about her. I wrote these songs before I even met Deanna, before my label and I had even talked about preparing for my official debut. I was just scribbling in pieces on papers during my breaks, 'cause I was featured in a lot of songs back then. I was in the studio a lot. The lyrics hold true memories, yes, but I have moved on from them in specific. I have yet to pick up my pen to write about our past relationship... Not that I intend to, to be honest. There's not much to say. She's great, yeah." When asked about his future projects, during an interview with Jimmy Fallon, Jinyoung asked people to ancitipate for his upcoming album, coming as soon as early May. In mid-April, 'all i got' reportedly reached a total of 10 million total sales, becoming the best-selling debut single of all time. That same week, the name of elated's debut album was announced: ECSTATIC. To end the month, elated featured in Alessia Cara's World of Chances. On May 4th, ECSTATIC was released. Jinyoung surprised critics not only with his mature and powerful vocals sided with his smooth tracks, but his crude, realistic, emotional and quite explicit lyrics. It reached #1 Worldwide, selling a total of 110,000 physical copies in its first week of release. In one month, the album sold 2 million copies (counting physical, digital, and streaming), remaining at #1 all throughout. cry for love and all i got reportedly reached over 8.6 million and 13 million sales respectively. all i got became the best-selling single of all time, surpassing Ed Sheeran's Nothing Lasts Forever. On June, 2015, Jinyoung started dating influencer Donata Mussellwhite. ECSTATIC's 3rd single 'un village' was released on July 13th to continue the insanely successful streak of elated's debut era. The single went straight to #1, selling over 120,000 physical copies in its first week, with a total of 1.2 million, counting digital, and streaming sales. The Ecstatic Tour began on July 15th to end on November 02 with over 30 dates. On August 10th, elated took home three Teen Choice Awards: Best R&B Album and Best Album for ECSTATIC, and Best Music Video for cry for love. Just six days later ECSTATIC became the best-selling album of all time with 4.8 million copies sold. By the end of 2015, Jinyoung participated as a supporting actor on Netflix's original movie 24/7. In early December, elated and Donata Mussellwhite reportedly broke up. When asked about it as he promoted 24/7, he said, "Huh? Ah, yeah... we broke up, yes. Our schedules were... we barely had time for one another, so, we decided to call it quits, yeah. There's no bad blood between us." He later dodge the same question after Mussellwhite's shady tweets went viral, "I know it's useless to tell people not to focus on it, because gossip is what makes things go nowadays, but, you know what's more important? I got new music coming out soon! Working on the final touches for elated2." elated wrapped the year having sold over 38 million singles and 5 million albuns (counting physical, digital, and streaming). ecstatic (2015) genre: R&B [E] for explicit kissland talk slow [E] going down [E] un village all i got cry for love pie [E] when you were mine [E] idon'tknowyouanymore [E] perfect little thing [E] drown [E] i'm not sorry [E] kiss of fire [E]

  12. Perhaps different award shows could have different percentages? Billboard definitely should be mostly sales based. But a show like the Grammy’s should be more album / song quality based This way, not every award show has the same winners.

  13. This was so detailed and such a great career with excessive success but I have a quick question how in the game can you make albums debut higher than 84,000 and 100,000 or closer to 1M is it a setting or is it something else? 1.2 it was a setting and it was simple but I always wondered why the album numbers in the game were so low and if that was the case for some others but I guess it isn’t

  14. As a person who’s been playing this for a while, I thought things like what I’m suggesting can soothe out the experience and make it even more pleasurable. Such as Chart predictions every week before charts the player would receive an email stating the line up for the charts for that following week. I would also suggest a more real album sales criteria such as the first week numbers I would like for an album to realistically draw 600-700k or more and be stable.. numbers drop drastically and move up slowly. I would also like reviews, more press and promo and award show performance offers to promote our song for a higher chart position. Another suggestion is a change in the YouTube system since it is outdated.

  16. continuation. pt. 1 of 2016, because i'm lazy. ⸻ 2016: LIBIDO Era, Acting Roles, Growing Popularity... To start the year, Jinyoung featured in Ysobel Water's Who's Loving You Now, and Maude Hemmer's When Did You Know, however, his next big musical project came officially at the end of February with the release of the single: feverish, the synth, vocal-heavy track inspired by retro music and modern R&B. The single received some mixed reviews from critics, but still managed to get #1 Worldwide, selling 1.2 million copies in its first week of release. In early March, Jinyoung was confirmed to be in a relationship with singer Atmaja Lockley and featured in Louise Skipp's Rock n Roll Bull. The negative comments on feverish made a lot of people especulate this would be the end of elated, that he'd only have one succesful era in his career and become a nobody. On March 17th, however, elated won a Grammy - Best Album for ECSTATIC. During his acceptance speech, Jinyoung hinted on his upcoming project, a new single coming very soon and an album at around September, or even sooner. Like he said, two weeks later, on April 11th, elated released 'who am i tonight?', a punk-pop song inspired by the early 2000s. Unlike the previous single, it received critical acclaim. The singer's lyricism was complimented to no end, and many applauded his music video for the amazing visuals. The song reached no. 1 on several countries and in two weeks, it sold over 240,000 copies Worldwide. However, the same day the song dropped, Atmaja Lockley made some seriously shady tweets about elated and basically announced to the whole world she had dumped him. elated did not let the comments phase him, and celebrated that feverish reached 7.8 million copies sold (counting physical, digital and streaming sales). In May, he starred in another Netflix original movie, titled Cupid's Mistakes. feverish and who am i tonight? reached 8.5 million and 4.2 million copies sold, respectively.
