Catch Sa-Roc’s latest Video “The Who?” featuring David Banner On MTV Jams and MTV U!
We are excited to announce that rebel raised rapper Sa-Roc was accepted for programming with MTV-U and MTV Jams with her video “The Who” ft. David Banner. Hailing from Washington DC, where poverty is high and cultural preservation is higher, Sa-Roc’s musical mentality has shown to rise above the prior misfortunes. Sa-Roc’s video is set in a classroom where her and David Banner rap about the adversity in history.
With influences like Jimi Hendrix, Gil Scott Heron, and Earth,Wind & Fire, no wonder why she’s a spitfire lyricist. Sa-Roc has a fresh new style mixed with hood poetry and otherworldly. She uses her fierce words to purge her aggression, demonstrating her strong literary background. We can’t wait to see what Sa-Roc has in store for us next!

Do you see a J.Cole video on every time you turn on the TV? That’s probably because we submitted not one, not two, but three, J. Cole videos for MTV! With the airing of videos for “Lights Please”, “Lost Ones”, and “Simba” , J. Cole is clearly all warmed up. After closed captioning and cleaning up any explicit video content, we are happy to report the track “Lights Please’ is currently in Heavy Rotation on MTV Jams receiving 50-55 plays per week, and is also airing on MTV2. All three videos bring each storyline to life, playing off the vivid picture his lyrics portray.
With Cole World being such a success, J.Cole is back with Born Sinner, which is produced entirely by him and available now. He ditched the studio for this album to return back to his bedroom where his creative mindflow is at its best, as we seen on previous mixtapes. Born Sinner is filled with inspiration from his early influences and dreams of becoming an NBA star. Currently, J.cole can be found on his second annual Dollar & A Dream Tour. Congrats J. Cole, looks like your “Cole World” is really heating up!

The MC/Producer collaboration of AKD & Deepstar have been accepted for submission to MTV UK for their music video, “No Mercy” featuring AG. The duo have always looked to capture the gritty feel of New York 90’s Hip Hop through their music, and the “No Mercy” video even further embraces this aesthetic. With classic images of the skyline and notable city landmarks, AKD and Deepstar were able to successfully re-capture a golden age for Hip-Hop.
The video’s success has landed them a spot on MTV UK, Viacom’s largest Network distributor in the United Kingdom and Ireland. The video for “No Mercy” can be viewed on the link down below.

“Dangerous” debuted at #35 this week on modern rock radio for stations including KROQ, Live 105, and Alt Nation.

MVS clients have been having so much success with major music video networks that we decided to feature some of these artists with a one on one interview and ask them about their success with Music Video Submissions. This week, MVS got to chat one on one with Devvon Terrell to talk about his overwhelming success on mtvU, BET, and Music Choice with his music video for “My Senses” and whats next for this Pop/R&B sensation!
MVS: Tell us a little bit about yourself Devvon, how long have you been making music?
Devvon: Ive been singing since I was 7 years old but I’d definitely say the studio came into play when I was in high school. I was in a group with 2 rappers and one singer… Did I mention that I was only 4 feet tall back then lol.
MVS: When the process comes about, what comes first, the lyrics or the beats?
Devvon: Honestly, the beat always drives the emotion for me, but sometimes a phrase or concept just opens up everything. In that case, I pull out the piano and build. As far as lyrics, I don’t write anything down anymore. I found it easier to go right into the booth and start singing. More natural and in the moment.
MVS: What is the scene like in Brooklyn, NY?
Devvon: Brooklyn is a weird place lol. On one side of the street you’ll see hipsters in small cafes and then the other side street kids outside project buildings on skateboards. So you can imagine the music that comes from this place; its everywhere. I love it.
MVS: Now we must talk the video for “My Senses”, and it’s acceptance to major networks including mtvU, BET, and Music Choice. What were you feeling as you were finding out all of this good feedback?
Devvon: It was the greatest feeling in the world, because these networks are going to be brutally honest about your music and will say no without hesitation if they feel so. So for them to pick up the video was really a huge stamp in my career reassuring me that I was capable of reaching something of that stature.
MVS: These are three HUGE networks with completely diverse audiences, is that what you were ideally aiming for upon submitting?
Devvon: Actually it was my hidden agenda, I personally want to be the melting pot of music touching everything. So the three networks picking up the video was so ironic and liberating. I was definitely excited to see the video played across such a diverse audience.
MVS: Did people approach you saying they saw the video on tv?
Devvon: OHH MY GOSH the phone calls I got were hilarious. I had family in Florida thinking I was famous and forgot about them lol. The biggest one was my mom at a dinner party and her friends screamed and saw me on TV; she called me crying. That was major and I have MVS to thank for that seriously.
MVS: What’s next, any new videos coming up?
Devvon: Tons of new stuff coming debut mixtape House Of The Weirdos is coming in April. Im honestly planning to shoot a video for 75% of the music on there. So MVS will be hearing from me again very soon lol.
MVS: Where can fans access your music if they want to check you out?
Devvon: You can always find me on www.devvonterrell.com. There you can find my Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook among other things. Facebook I love the most cause I get to interact with my fans heavily there.
MVS: Who are some of your influences?
Devvon: Wow, how about I say from Wolfgang Gartner to Swedish House Mafia to Maroon 5 to Neyo to Kanye West… Does that make any sense? lol
MVS: Do you have any advice to give artists who may be contemplating submitting their video through MVS?
Devvon: Do not hesitate to set a higher standard for independent artists around you by submitting to MVS. I promise when you tell your friends in school, neighborhood or any social circles that your video is on TV and in shopping malls they will look at you with a new respect. I know this cause it happened to me. I don’t mind anyone contacting me with questions regarding my submission. Ill make you a believer. lol
Thanks so much to MVS artist Devvon Terrell for giving us a glimpse into his world. Be sure to check out his video for “My Senses” below, and show him some love!
So did Devvon Terrell convince you yet? If you think you have got what it takes, submit your music video to Music Video Submissions and let us do the rest!! We will give your music video the best chance for the success!
