Career Trajectories

Picture 1

Interestingly, according to the last poll, most of you think David’s last two pop albums – his self-titled debut and The Other Side of Down – have aged well, so obviously David has got it in him to make good quality music.

What’s also interesting, to me, is how recent conversations have been bringing up Justin Timberlake as some kind of “model” for how David should be imaged and marketed. I’m kind of “eh” on that whole thing, although I will agree I like the “sound” of JT’s new music. I just think he’s the biggest faker there is (white boy doing R&B), while I think David has it in him to be far more hazel-eyed soul than so many of these posers, but not sure he believes that about himself.

Remember a post I did way back on how David can get his “soul” back? 😛

Anywayz, I have a new poll for you guys, in terms of career trajectory.

So You Think David Can Dance?

Just reposting a “vault” video from over the weekend!

David’s “Sound”: How Will It Age?

Interesting that, although most of you voted “All of the Above” for David to change his sound, image, etc. in the most recent poll, the second choice was mostly for David to focus on creating a “new sound” that would signal his musical direction.

After listening to his older music in the Flashback Series, I’m curious: has David created enough of a sound for his musical identity? In giving his earlier music another listen, do you find that his albums have aged well?  Or do they sound dated?  Please take my next poll!

Another song that never got its moment to shine:
