Outside the courtyard, under a locust tree.
Shen Fanxing was composed.
“I’ve been waiting for you to look for me.”
Ji Yi pressed her lips and gave a faint smile. “I’ve been busy writing songs recently and I didn’t have time.”
Shen Fanxing narrowed her eyes. “Really? You look like you’re quite content.”
Ji Yi nodded and took a deep breath, as if she had been relieved of a heavy burden.
“Since I was young, I didn’t dare to brag about being proficient in all kinds of musical instruments, but I was familiar with most of them. My mother was very strict with me when she was alive, but I enjoyed it, even though I had rebellious thoughts sometimes.
I have written many songs before, but they were all rejected by my mother. I wanted to express myself and surpass her, but…
I’ve forced myself too much… I’ve been coming here often recently and I seem to understand something. That’s why I’m very satisfied with my song… I’ve already shown it to my senior. If he can tweak and modify it for me, I’m confident that the song will have good results…”
Shen Fanxing listened to her silently before nodding her head.
Ji Yi thought that Shen Fanxing had compromised, but Shen Fanxing said,
“There is no way you have no idea that Lan Yun Entertainment is producing an album for Shen Qianrou, right?”
Ji Yi frowned in silence.
“Since you want to release an album or a song, you have to go through the company’s approval. Although you wrote the song yourself, the company will still halt the process.
Lan Yun Entertainment’s best resources are all invested in Shen Qianrou. If your song is really good, do you think the company will give you the rights to release it? They will definitely try their best to give it to Shen Qianrou.”
Ji Yi shook her head and refused.
“That’s my song! If I don’t agree, what can they do?!”
Shen Fanxing looked at her and smiled resignedly.
“You’ve produced two albums and held small-scale concerts. I remember you’ve been in the industry for a few years. Why are you still so innocent?”
Ji Yi knitted her eyebrows. “What do you mean?”
Shen Fanxing gave a light sigh and strolled to the garden to admire the flowers.
“Lan Yun Entertainment has supported Shen Qianrou unconditionally. Do you think that if you refuse to give her your song, they will let you publish it? They will stop you and let your song rot in your hands. If you publish it first, you might get in Shen Qianrou’s way. If you publish it later, you might surpass her popularity. Lan Yun Entertainment… they won’t let you surpass Shen Qianrou…”
Ji Yi’s expression had turned ugly. She was jittery and incensed.
Shen Fanxing’s words left her unable to protest.
After all these years in Lan Yun Entertainment, many celebrities were well aware of the treatment they had received.
But most of them didn’t dare to voice their anger.
Because they had a contract with Lan Yun Entertainment. During the validity of the contract, if they angered or offended Lan Yun Entertainment, there were plenty of people in the organization who would not bother with them. It was no different from being blacklisted.
Noticing the obvious change in Ji Yi’s mood, Shen Fanxing smiled and said,
“But Stars International is different. You have talent, you have music, I have the connections and resources. I won’t crush you because of anyone. As long as you have the capability, I will naturally help you to achieve what you want and fulfill your dream.”
Since Ji Yi didn’t make a decision, Shen Fanxing didn’t force her.
“I’ve given you enough time. Shen Qianrou is preparing an album now. She has a good voice and has a musical background. As long as she can land a good song with a positive message, she will become even more famous. And before and after this happens, you won’t be able to publish a song.. In order to let her shine longer and dazzle more, you can only wait…”
