I Know Everything - Chapter 425
Chapter 425: Bastard!!!
Wang Juan didn’t lose her mind and certainly wouldn’t spray blood and faint like in the novel.
She angrily went to a makeshift tent further away where it was quieter.
There were some staff members who were resting there.
Seeing Wang Juan’s solemn and gloomy expression, they all glanced at each before smartly leaving.
The screaming and singing outside weakened a lot after she got into the tent.
Wang Juan ignored it and took a deep breath before opening her phone.
Then she opened the number one music website, Kuku Music.
China’s music websites were basically split in three parts as they basically shared 90% of the market shares.
Among them, Kuku Music occupied the impressive 38% of the shares.
Most of the people downloaded their song there.
Many of them also commented on the music there.
To some extent, their comments would affect whether some people would buy the song or not.
The middle scrolling banner at the homepage of Kuku Music were the songs and albums they promoted today.
It was usually five songs or albums scrolling in a loop.
They needed great reviews or potential to do greatly to appear there.
The first thing Wang Juan saw was ‘Youth Rhapsody’.
Then the second thing she saw was a song called ‘He Must Really Love You’ and the words ‘Wrote by Lu Xiaofeng’ that were almost as big as the title of the song.
Releasing on the same day as them, it was deliberately a try to suppress them!
Wang Juan clicked on the banner with gritted teeth and was led to the page that introduced the singer and the song with the song at the bottom.
Then she saw a familiar handsome face.
She immediately recognized one of the 32 contestants, Jian Peng.
His name was already on the banner but it was so small that Wang Juan took no notice of it.
Jian Peng left a deep impression on Wang Juan as he was really handsome and was just like a foreign model but his voice was too different as it was not only hoarse but also smoky and it basically felt like a robot talking.
Otherwise Wang Juan would have kept him even if his voice was average.
But she didn’t expect that after this guy was eliminated, he would take refuge at Lu Xiaofeng…no, at Shanhai Streaming!
When Wang Juan saw the words ‘Affiliated with Shanhai Streaming Agency’, she gritted her teeth in anger again.
If this wasn’t them uniting together to deal with Lightning Boys, she would swallow an entire mountain!
In anger, Wang Juan put on her ear buds and tapped on the single.
“I hid in the car holding a bottle of champagne, and wanted to give you a birthday surprise.”
Wang Juan felt like she had been struck by thunder after hearing the first line.
How could such a smoky and hoarse voice sing so nicely!?
Her expression sank.
At that moment, no one dared to stand three meters near her and the remaining people in the tent all slipped away.
“He must really love you and better than me, breaking up took one minute only.”
Wang Juan froze and had a desperate expression when she heard the chorus.
How could this be?
How could Lu Xiaofeng write such a song?!
Lu Xiaofeng being able to write a good song, that was normal.
But how could he write a song that suited each of the singer’s unique characteristics so well?
It was like this for Guan Yili.
And for Zhao Changshou too.
It was also the same for Meteor Girls.
This was true for Meng Zijing two months ago.
He could even make Jian Peng, who got sentenced to death by the judges that firmly believed he couldn’t sing, sing a classic like ‘He Must Really Love You’?!
How unbelievable was that?
Wang Juan finished listening to the song with a heavy heart.
Then she listened to it a second time with a pained heart.
She no longer doubted the greatness of the song after listening to it a second time and didn’t doubt that many men and women would be attracted to the vicissitude and emotion of the song sung by Jian Peng.
Compared to that, the three title songs of Lightning Boys’ album were great but they weren’t not on the same level.
Those three songs were good but ‘He Must Really Love You’ was an absolute future classic.
Although couldn’t wait to tear Lu Xiaofeng apart, she had to admit that Lu Xiaofeng’s songs were all classics and they were classics among classics.
‘He Must Really Love You’ definitely wasn’t at the same level of ‘Deskmate’, ‘Curved Moon’ or ‘Laughter From the Sea’.
However, it would definitely be a widely sung love song for the next few years.
In today’s internet era, it would already be good if a song had a one year lifespan.
It would be a classic if it had a three to five years lifespan and remembered by everyone.
In that case, people who sang it for three years would also continue to sing it in the future as it would represent their younger days.
Of course, a classic like ‘Laughter From the Sea’ wouldn’t fall off even after twenty years as it would continue to be there as the music industry developed and there was no such thing as being out of date.
Jian Peng’s voice definitely couldn’t sing ‘Laughter From the Sea’ otherwise he would be beaten by the song’s fans.
But ‘He Must Really Love You’ was a match in heaven to his voice as the song was that touching because of his voice and it maximized the advantage of his voice.
Wang Juan almost cursed out loud as she angrily went to today’s Kuku Music’s sales list.
The first was still ‘Comeback’ with 150k units sold, which was nothing weird.
With the continued popularity of the hard copies sales, its online sales also picked up.
The sales on the first day were 400k but after ten days, they still could sell 250k in a day.
In the second position was ‘Red Bean’ with 100k units.
In the third place was Lightning Boys’ ‘Youth Rhapsody’ with 20k units.
It had only been an hour since the release.
20k in an hour for a single music website was considered very good, wouldn’t they surpass ‘Comeback’ after a few more hours?
However, Wang Juan knew that among the 20k units, 10k units were bought by Shining Technology as Lightning Boys wasn’t allowed to fail and must be the number one on the first day, and nobody could go against it.
Then Wang Juan felt a headache when she saw the single chart.
The first place was still Meng Zijing’s ‘Understanding’ with 380k copies sold. Only god knew why those office workers were so powerful as so many people were still buying it after so long.
The second place was surprisingly Jian Peng’s ‘He Must Really Love You’, which was 22k copies.
Wang Juan verified previously and Jian Peng’s song had been released at the same time as Lightning Boys’ album.
It was just released for an hour in Kuku Music but it had sold 22k copies already!?
Was going against logic!
Wang Juan could already imagine what kind of blow ‘Youth Rhapsody’ would be if ‘He Must Really Love You’ reached the top of the single chart today.
Regardless of whether Shanhai Streaming paid for busy or not, how domineering would it be if a single alone suppressed an entire album?
Not to mention that this singer was someone unwanted from Lightning Boys.
To have eyes and yet fail to the jade.
Discerning eyes that could tell greatness from mediocrity.
Those two sayings appeared in Wang Juan’s eyes.
The nervous Wang Juan couldn’t hold back her scream anymore.
