Portugal is finally getting its own MTV channel. I don’t know if this is good news, but this could be a breakthrough for some Portuguese bands since the channel headquarters is in London, there will be a lot of MTV people listening to Portuguese music to be selected for airplay.
As everyone knows, London is the music centre of Europe.
MTV might be all about crappy pop, hip-hop and breasts, but it is also the number one vehicle for music promotion.
I admit I do enjoy some chewing gum pop, including some Britney and J. Timberlake (I’m going to get crucified for this), I don’t buy it, but some of it gets my attention and I actually know the words of some songs. I can’t help it, I am an MTV generation child, and anyone that refuses this condition is a liar or grew up locked in a basement.
