Does payola really happen in the music industry? If it does it usually for radio play. Now according to Gossip Jacker, Diddy has been paying a high powered exec over at BET to play Bad Boy artist Cassie’s video “King of Hearts” on their most popular show, “106 & Park”. The post below was left anonymously on a message board:
Apparently a BET employee has reported Diddy paid for Cassie’s King Of Hearts video to be on 106 and Park. They said Diddy is best friends with Steven Hill.
He says everyone in the office laughs about how the song did not chart but is always on 106 and Park. He also said Beyonce would never listen to Cassie. Her cousin Angie Beyince put Cassie’s song on Beyonce’s website as a favor for her friend Cappadonna.”
But wait, aren’t the videos on 106 & Park controlled by the viewers voting for their favorite video?
