Who's Next on Facebook Messenger [Answers To Your Questions]

HOT 97 has partnered with Indie App, a Chat Bot Development Team to create Who’s Next on Facebook Messenger. Who’s Next On Messenger is a new music ecosystem connecting Hip Hop artists with HOT97 listening audiences in an effort to promote new artist discovery and identify listeners who can curate Hip Hop hits.

To get started simply follow HOT 97 on Facebook messenger and hit “Get Started”. 

Artist’s Submit Your Work For Feedback: Artists have the opportunity to submit their work to HOT97 audiences through Facebook messenger for a nominal fee to receive immediate listens & data-driven feedback from thousands of Hip Hop fans. Artists simply click submit a song, copy the Youtube link of their track, (Soundcloud, or any other audio or video platform into the messenger) pay the fee to have the
track promoted to HOT 97 fans, and receive instant feedback from those fans once their track is promoted. Once a track receives all feedback, now also has the real data from a trusted audience to enter the HOT 97 leaderboards. The Hot 97 leaderboards can be found on the persistent menu within the HOT97 Messenger App. The HOT 97 leaderboard effect can help your track get discovered. Tracks in the top 20 of the HOT 97 leaderboards leads to monthly discovery opportunities for the artist such as the chance to perform at the Who’s Next Showcase at SOB’s in New York City. Only one talented & lucky artist from the Top 20 will be selected to perform at this showcase each month. To be listed in the Top 20 of the leaderboards, you must acquire the highest percentage of positive votes on your tracks compared to other tracks being rated throughout the month. Positive votes are distinguished by the fire emoji, which indicates that the track is a hit. 

Song Leaderboard 

Each song submission will cost $20. To promote their music to the HOT 97 followers and receive feedback.  The payment process runs through PayPal and will be managed by our official Who’s Next Technology partner Indie App. The charge you will see for submitting your song will come from the Indie App, not HOT97.

Listeners : Do You Have Your Ear To The Streets? Who’s Next Facebook Messenger is relying the opinions of our listeners to help new artists promote their music. HOT97 is looking to acknowledge listeners who have “their ear to the streets” by making them official HOT97 Music Curators. Listeners who score the highest Curator Leaderboard position each month will be an invited VIP guest to the HOT97 Curator Table at our monthly Who’s Next events. In addition Hot97 Curators will be asked to make a new music playlist for the Who’s Next Portal at H ot97.com/whosnext . Curators enter into the top leaderboards by acquiring the most points, gained from their ability to vote with the majority consensus on sent tracks. If a curator votes that a track is a hit and it's consistent with the opinion of other curators, they are given maximum points for that vote. If they vote against the majority, they lose points. This ensures that curators are identifying tracks that would actually become hits. 

Prizing. HOT97 will award prizing for both artist performances and curators each month. HOT97 will contact winners by direct messaging winners in Facebook Messenger
