"What keeps James Fauntleroy from being a star?"


  

          

He can obviously write hits. He sings well enough. He makes enjoyable music.
Is it cuz he ain't good looking enough?

while I personally really like him, mostly for the C80s stuff and his writing skills, I just don't think he has the "it" factor or a distinguishable enough voice to make the leap. He's damn talented but there's just something missing that keeps him in the writer's room rather than blowing up himself.

...they haven't dropped a gem on us since December 2012! Used to be every several months (since the first in mid-2011) they were dropping one of them EPs. Now we've gone over 2 years without one. I'm kinda fiending.

not all though
and the ones i like, i do spin and folks dig

but theyre not really huge hits in the making like that

honestly he can last longer being a songwriter and perhaps parlaying C80s to a point where people pay for the work even if it's just a small dedicated fan base

In response to Reply # 27


  

          

But the point about James is he won't blow up just bc or primarily bc lots of ppl want to bone him or think he's pretty. He's not conventionally pretty like that. So he will have to blow up bc of his talent or bc something else about him is notable.

fuck you.

he most likely knows what it takes to be a 'star' and doesn't play that game.
he makes the music he likes and gets a good amount of support for that
as a fan we just gotta keep letting the people around us know that we fk with his music
and others may or may not catch on.

He visually can't sell it, or hasn't found a way to sell it. Like Frank Ocean isn't a sex symbol dude looks and dresses like a normal kid you would pass by everyday but he's able to sell that look it works for him. Fauntleroy is dope don't get it twisted but looking like Kung fu panda isn't cool enough yet, atleast the way he presents it.

So what makes you think he wants to be? Just cuz he releases music? or cuz you want him to be?

He's got a grammy, millions and writes with one of the biggest male artists of our generation. Has he ever even shot a music video? Like I really don't think he cares to be a "star"

but... to be an armchair a&r for a second... imo only one can win between him and Frank Ocean. Their voices are incredibly similar and even though their ideas aren't the marketing of introspective black singer/songwriter would be the same..

Since Frank has the magazine ready looks he probably has the advantage in the scenario..
