Royce Da 5’9 Reaches New Heights (And A New Audience)

March 22, 2013 Featured News, Sync Placement 2 Comments

phpThumb_generated_thumbnailjpgIf you watch MTV’s Washington Heights, you may have heard Royce Da 5’9 in Episode 9 of the new reality teen-drama series now rounding out its first season. Set in the series’ namesake Upper Upper West side slice of Manhattan, the show follows nine youth who each have their own dreams and aspirations after high school, but are bonded together by the neighborhood they call home.

The inclusion of “Count for Nothing” in S1E9 also came with an opportunity to feature it on MTV’s Soundtrack Blog, the network’s new platform created for viewers to connect with the music in the shows they watch. Full tracklistings, links to artist pages, curated spotify playlists, and even free downloads of featured tracks make music discovery an integral part of the user experience surrounding programs even after they have aired.

Hopefully more networks will follow MTV’s lead, providing full immersion into the world of a show and creating something for viewers to continue engaging with long into the future after series end or fads change. Here at The Orchard, we’re proud to be a part of soundtracking that future.

Catch up on Washington Heights, including full episodes, clips, and of course, complete tracklistings for every episode on MTV’s site.

    Would love to have some of my instrumental music featured on these shows. The Orchard has been a good partner in delivering our albums into the digital stores. Definitely possible to get placements too.
