Well-known entertainment journalist, Olele Salvador has recently expressed a view that not every song warrants a dance challenge to propel it to stardom.
Speaking as a pundit on the Praise Achievement Awards-nominated Christian Entertainment Review show on Amansan TV (ATV) hosted by Nii Noi, Olele Salvador highlighted the need for a discerning approach when choosing songs for dance challenges. While acknowledging the infectious appeal of dance trends, he emphasized the importance of preserving the authenticity and intent of the music itself.
“The phenomenon of dance challenges has undeniably revolutionized the way we engage with music in the digital age. However, it’s essential to recognize that not all songs are created with the intention of sparking a dance craze,” Olele Salvador stated during the conversation on the topic “The Role Of Dance In Music Promotion”.
Olele Salvador underscored that the essence of a song, its lyrical depth, musical intricacies, and emotional resonance, should be considered when evaluating its suitability for a dance challenge. Songs that convey profound messages or explore complex themes may lose their intended impact when reduced to a mere dance challenge, potentially diluting the artist’s original artistic vision.
While acknowledging the undeniable allure and entertainment value of dance challenges, Olele Salvador emphasized that balance and discernment should be exercised to ensure that the soul of the music is not compromised.
“A dance challenge should ideally complement a song, adding to its appeal and inviting a broader audience. However, it’s vital to avoid reducing music to mere trends, thereby preserving the integrity of the artist’s creation,” Olele Salvador added.
