Case Study: O.N.E The Duo
About O.N.E The Duo
Brought to us from the label, Visionary Media Group (VMG), O.N.E The Duo has crafted a distinctive sonic path, seamlessly blending their Hip-Hop roots with the world of Country music. Notably, they hold the distinction of being the first Black mother-daughter duo in the history of Country music. The very title of their album, “Blood Harmony,” is a testament to the profound familial bond that unites them.
Prana Supreme, the daughter of RZA from the legendary Wu-Tang Clan, brings her own musical lineage to the table, while Tekitha is celebrated for her role as the featured female vocalist of Wu-Tang. The musical influences from their family run deep, with their home often hosting jam sessions filled with singers, songwriters, musicians, and artists during Prana’s childhood. This environment fueled Prana’s desire to form a musical partnership with her best friend and mother, Tekitha. After persuasive efforts on Prana’s part, they embarked on their joint musical journey, culminating in this pivotal moment—the release of their album.
“Blood Harmony” marks a new chapter in the duo’s artistic journey, offering a reflection of their shared spirit, life experiences, and creative vision.
First, we distributed their music to 200+ DSPs.
Our global reach took O.N.E The Duo’s music to new heights as we distributed their music across our extensive network of over 200 DSPs globally. This strategic move ensured maximum exposure worldwide, reaching diverse audiences and propelling O.N.E The Duo’s career to the forefront of the country music scene.
Next, we got them a Client Manager.
Up next, we appointed the duo a dedicated client manager who facilitated weekly status and feedback calls, and oversaw marketing strategies, execution, and general operations. Our priority client service ensured swift deliveries to DSPs, enabling O.N.E. The Duo’s music to reach a global audience rapidly and efficiently. We believe this personalized approach coupled with the immense support offered by VMG contributed significantly to their success.
We came up with a strategy…
In order to amplify their presence online, our team worked with VMG to craft a release plan encompassing four singles along with a compelling focus track, each complemented by visually captivating official videos. We also facilitated TikTok campaigns and third-party playlisting by Streaming Promotions to strategically strengthen these efforts.
A dynamic range of marketing drivers also contributed to their success, including impactful press coverage, targeted digital advertising, engaging short-form content, and a captivating performance on the Today Show. Additionally, the announcement of an album release tour created further momentum. Through meticulous efforts and consistent teamwork, they maintained a prominent presence in all DSP decks, gaining visibility and preference among listeners. Key accolades, such as CMT’s Next Woman of Country, and their collaboration with other musical acts (Wu-Tang) further enriched their image, alongside showcasing their esteemed songwriting collaborators.
