Discounted Submissions

Full disclosure: This service is primarily to advertise your track to the HOT97's audience via Facebook Messenger.  In other words, you pay to have your track promoted to our Facebook audience for valuable feedback.  This is the only service being paid for each time. 


However, through this feedback service, your track can be discovered by HOT97 if it receives favorable feedback from HOT's audience.  HOT listens to their audience. 

If you're chosen for a discounted submission, you and a handful of other artists will receive a forwarded message & video from DJ Drewski or DJ Enuff. All artists chosen will be tagged as a recipient of the message. 

Being chosen for the discount does not guarantee you'll make it onto the leaderboard. It simply makes your submission to HOT97 fans more affordable. 

What Happens After You Pay

Your Track is sent to the phones of the HOT97 audience on Messenger who rate it as "A Hit", "Needs Work", or "Trash". Our audience will also leave a comment about the best part of the song so you know your sweet spot! 

After your track has been rated by at least 30 listeners,  your final score will be sent to you.  Your final score is a percentage report on how many listeners rated your track as "A Hit" , "Needs Work", or "Trash".  You'll also be notified if enough listeners rated your track as a hit to qualify for the leaderboard. 

The leaderboard is organized by tracks with the highest hit percentages. Once on the Leaderboard, your track has a chance to be discovered by HOT 97 on top of the feedback  & exposure it has already received. 

 ℹ️Make sure your track has a strong intro! Like most Record label A&Rs , our listeners can tell if a song is worth listening to in the first 10 seconds. 

Who's The Audience ?

The audience rating your tracks are our listeners who decided to showcase their ear for music by using our platform on Messenger to rate your tracks!  Invite your friends & family to join our audience/curator base!
