Not to say that there aren’t great mainstream artists (there are) but it always seems that artists like Action Bronson, Gotye and Major Lazer (to name a few) were artists that were regulated to YouTube and blogs never quite making it to mainstream radio (as if the Internet doesn’t count). It wasn’t until they become so overwhelmingly popular that stations had no option but to play them. Some will argue that mainstream radio is unimportant anyway which isn’t exactly wrong but not exactly right either (mainstream radio can definitely broaden your fan base) which brings me to Major Lazer. Having been pumping out quality music for 7 years it appears that lean on is their mainstream break out.
