Viral this, viral that - is there a clear recipe for success when it comes to writing new music? Understanding the relationship between the makings of a song and its success on the charts is what the science of making a hit track is all about.
Certain features such as length, tempo, loudness and danceability are just some of the things UK based researchers at the University of Bristol have incorporated into what they call “the hit equation.” In all they found 23 key features that distinguish a song (see graphic.)

Tunezy Does Coachella.
It was our first time out at Palm Desert for the Coachella Music Festival, soaking up the sun and enjoying the incredible and perpetual line up of music. While passes had long been sold out, we were so lucky to get our hands on some VIPs so we could saunter in and celebrity spot.
The west coast is such an incredible place - from the hot spring/summer days to the cool desert evenings, not only did you have a wide array of fashion stomp the grounds, but a drastically different music experience as the sun set. Hint hint: Tunezy has a few West Coast Experiences coming right up in May as well with some of our new artists.
Here are a few of our grand highlights:
What does it really take to get noticed by industry experts and recording stars like Bif Naked and Jully Black? Well, a fiery personality, catchy melodies and a guitar doesn’t hurt. Meet Ivy James. She’s only 16-years old, but Ivy already possesses a songwriting talent and a musical maturity well beyond her years.
With lyrics like “I didn’t need my second chance so I threw it away” from ‘Your Escape (Nate’s Song)’ and “it’s so pointless wishing on burnt out stars” from ‘Thunder’, it’s pretty clear - Ivy’s foray into the music world is not temporary. Armed with just her guitar, Ivy recorded and released her self-titled debut EP in June 2012 filled with six self-written heart-twisting acoustic melodies. In October 2012, Ivy won Best Young Songwriter at the Toronto Independent Music awards and ironic enough - wasn’t even able attend the awards show because she was under 19.
Naughty by Nature in New York. Sounds like a sweet Sunday to us! Tunezy was proud to present a VIP dinner along with some merch packages and experiences tied to the NBN performance at Gramercy Theatre.
Fans were treated to a steak dinner along with their platinum and dinner packages on Tunezy, where the guys brought along wicked OPP cupcakes, in celebration of 20 years of Hip Hop Hooray.
Vinny, Kay Gee, and Treach were fantastic hosts, welcoming their biggest fans from New York area to enjoy a great meal, go backstage, and hang out at an intimate afterparty following a packed show for over 500 rap fanatics.

Grab your boots and a glass of red. The urban cowgirl has arrived. Meet Jacelyn Holmes - singer, songwriter, guitarist and energizer bunny. With her bewitching eyes and seductive smile, it’s easy to see why this lovely lady started off her career as an actress. Lucky for us, she soon switched gears to the musical side of things and well, just listen to this.
Unlike an ordinary country crooner, Jacelyn blends her smooth, cooing vocals with a bit of jazz, pop and rock to create a new fusion of genres and alternative country sound that is distinctly hers and hers alone. Jacelyn was made for this, and if her natural passion doesn’t win you over, then her bubbly, beaming personality sure will.
