Esmée spoke to Digital Spy about her The Voice UK blind audition, her coach will.i.am, getting dropped from Tennmann records and her (online) fanbase. It’s definitely worth the read so be sure to check it out!
The Voice UK contestant Esmée Denters has admitted that she was “angry and confused” after being dropped from her record label.
Denters was previously signed by Justin Timberlake’s label and had a top ten hit in the UK before being dropped in 2012.
“I think at the moment when I got dropped I was sort of angry for a long time and very confused,” she told Digital Spy.
“People don’t really know what it’s like unless you go through it, and when I went through it was the darker side of the music industry. A lot of the time you just see the glamorous things and you just see what’s popular. You don’t see how much work goes into these things.”
She continued: “I was very lucky – I was handed stuff on a silver platter when I first started out, and the reality is a lot of people have to play in every little pub and they have to work their ass off. I think the people that just keep going no matter what – I think those are the people eventually that win.
