John Legend, Chris Martin y más estrellas dan conciertos caseros que puedes ver desde tu sofá


Las estrellas te están trayendo sus canciones.

En medio de la actual pandemia de coronavirus, los artistas famosos han tenido que cancelar sus espectáculos programados para evitar reuniones grupales y una mayor propagación del virus. Para compensar las cancelaciones, o simplemente para elevar la moral, algunas estrellas han recurrido a las redes sociales para entretener a sus fanáticos desde lejos con shows producidos en casa, incluido el cantante de country ganador del Grammy Keith Urban y el líder de Coldplay, Chris Martin.

El lunes, Urban acudió a Instagram Live con una presentación de media hora con un cameo muy especial: su famosa esposa.

Durante el set, Nicole Kidman apareció para ofrecerle algunos movimientos de baile al show, particularmente mientras Urban interpretaba su éxito, The Fighter. La ganadora del Oscar no pasó desapercibida. «Impresionante, hola Nicole», decía un comentario.

A Kidman también le encantaba unirse. «Me encantó poder cantar y bailar con todos ustedes», escribió en Instagram. «Pueden ver el concierto casero de Keith en su página todo el día en @KeithUrban xx».

Mientras tanto, Martin tocó un solo de piano y guitarra mientras le daba una serenata a los fanáticos de todo el mundo con versiones acústicas de sus éxitos.

«Mi amigo Chris Martin hizo un pequeño y encantador concierto desde casa hoy», tuiteó John Legend el lunes. «Haré uno mañana a la 1 p.m. hora del Pacífico. Nos vemos pronto. ¡Intentaremos superar esto juntos! #JuntosEnCasa».

Mientras tanto, después de reprogramar su gira de primavera, David Foster tomó las redes sociales con su esposa Katharine McPhee para comenzar una serie de shows diarios. «Fue muy divertido hoy hacer un en vivo con mi esposa. Soy el peor acompañante de piano del mundo para las canciones de otras personas, pero Kat es tan increíble que me atrae. Vamos a tratar de hacerlo todos los días para nuestro propio entretenimiento, y con suerte para todos ustedes también», anunció el galardonado productor discográfico. «Cualquier sugerencia es bienvenida, ¡hoy fuimos novatos y apestó! ¡Pero fue divertido! ¡Trataremos de salir en vivo a las 5:30 pm, hora de la costa oeste, todos los días!»

Ahora, a medida que los fanáticos se adaptan a la vida mientras se distancian socialmente, gracias a estas estrellas, los próximos días al menos estarán llenos de música en vivo gratis.

A Coronavirus Song Featuring Cardi B Is Going Viral — and May Violate Copyright Law


Last week, Cardi B began to worry about coronavirus and took to Instagram to zealously announce that “shit is getting real.” As Cardi B videos tend to, her response went viral immediately. Within days, an enterprising producer and DJ named iMarkkeyzhad ripped the audio, and turned into the centerpiece of a new dance track, fittingly titled “Coronavirus.” The song was officially released to DSPs on Friday, March 13th; by Tuesday it was #9 on the overall iTunes U.S. songs chart.

User-generated videos set to the song quickly began to pop up on TikTok and across social media, catching the attention of Cardi, who tweeted that she wanted royalties when she spotted a video of the song playing in a Rio De Janeiro club.

“The fact that this damn coronavirus song is charting on iTunes… Hold on… let me hit the DJ up and Atlantic so I can get my damn coins,” Cardi B wrote in an Instagram post that was published on Monday. At that time, her screenshot of the iTunes chart showed iMarkkeyz’s “Coronavirus” at #96 on the iTunes chart. In less than a day, it has skyrocketed on the platform.

The popularity of “Coronavirus” comes with questions of its legality. Songs that recontextualize source material are more common than ever, and the path to attention (and commercial success) is often much faster than copyright laws can keep up with. When Lil Nas X released “Old Town Road,” he had unwittingly sampled a Nine Inch Nails song — he bought the song’s beat from a producer on the internet — and the song was gathering listeners before the song’s royalty structure was worked out (or he was even signed). In that instance, Nine Inch Nails collaborators Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross were able to walk away with producer credits and 50% of the publishing (or songwriting) rights. It’s possible a similar outcome is possible for Cardi.

According to one music attorney, “Coronavirus” likely represents a copyright violation. Copyright in any sound recording belongs to the maker of the recording — even if that recording is of a person speaking on Instagram. However, the attorney points out, it is common for a record label to put a clause in a contract with an artist that claims “all recordings by the artist” as the label’s property, which would include everything from voice notes to recordings of phone calls — and recordings of Cardi’s Instagram Stories. Which could mean that iMarkkeyz will find himself negotiating directly with Atlantic Records over the fate of his viral song. When Rolling Stone reached out, an Atlantic representative said that the label was “looking into it,” but wouldn’t go into any detail. iMarkkeyz did not respond to a request for comment.

“If the beat does not have any samples except for Cardi’s voice, an approval should be secured from Atlantic (WMG) and from Cardi herself on the master side, and [the publisher] may consider this a publishing use,” adds Deborah Mannis-Gardner, who specializes in music clearances for film, television, samples, and new technology. This would not be a worst case scenario for iMarkkeyz. “I could see her label treating this as a remix and claim 100% ownership of the master, and then pay the producer a royalty.”
