Justin Timberlake Joins Burnlounge

Another industry mega-star has decided that BurnLounge is the best way to build his already colossal fan base and sell his music.
Justin Timberlake has teamed with BurnLounge to bring his latest release, “FutureSex/LoveSounds”, to his fans by way of BurnLounge. With BurnLounge, Timberlake plans to turn his fans into a powerful team of retailers to spread the music he’s crazy about. According to BurnLounge E.V.P. of Operations Kevin Keranen:
“You won’t have to convince anyone of the magnitude of owning your own internet corner record store when one of the largest artists in the world has one.” The real beneficiary of this deal is not only BurnLounge or Justin Timberlake – it’s you, the BurnLounge retailer.
If a fan wanted to join Justin’s team, it’s amazingly simple. To be instantly routed to his BurnLounge, he or she just has to click here and once they’re in his store, they can click "Become a Retailer". Or, if they’re visiting his website, they can click the BurnLounge button made available there. Timberlake’s album is already being reported as a huge seller on FrontBurner’s Top Downloads, which is not surprising, since it carries with it a certain cachet. High expectations awaited this sophomore solo effort, and already the strong reviews are piling in. So whether you’re a longtime J.T. nut or just someone who enjoys really good music, you’re going to want to check out his store.

Have You Heard The News? There's Good Rockin' Tonight!!!

By Steve Yanosey

Elvis’ been gone for almost 30 years, but BurnLounge has found a new way to honor rock and roll’s greatest frontiersman: By providing him with his own BurnLounge retailer store.
In an excellent example of BurnLounge’s pledge to restore the music industry’s balance of power to the people, a retailer took it upon himself to contact Elvis Presley Enterprises. It turned out that Elvis’ estate was very interested in hearing about BurnLounge. After a very enthusiastic exchange of information from both sides, the rest, as they say, is history. Now BurnLounge customers will have access to a store that’s all King, all the time.
What does all of this amount to? Simply put, it’s a marvelous illustration of how BurnLounge can help not only emerging independents, but extend the reach of even the greatest artists in music history.
“Musicians opening BurnLounge retailer stores are a validation of the artist-fan connection,” remarked Stephen Murray, Chief Creative Officer of BurnLounge. “And you can’t find a bigger artist than Elvis. He’s sold more records than anyone can count. And now his estate feels the BurnLounge model is the next step to furthering his legacy.”
In other words, BurnLounge has been endorsed by people who have been to the top of the mountain and back. They feel BurnLounge can help them. If BurnLounge can help artists of that stature and reach, imagine what we can do for your favorite unknown independent artists.
