As this year marks the 20th anniversary of Mathew Knowles’ Music World Entertainment, the industry titan is showing no signs of halting the label’s track record of success.
In recent weeks, Beyonce’s dad premiered his international reality television show, “Breaking From Above,” in America as part of a joint venture with MTV International. The series, which initially aired last November in 160 countries, follows Knowles’ latest girl group, From Above, as they navigate the mogul’s artist development program.
During a recent interview with The Huffington Post, the Fisk University graduate and former Xerox executive opened up on his latest foray into unscripted television, and offered some details on the release of two new Destiny’s Child albums and his love for his grandchildren, Juelz and Blue Ivy.
Yes, we’re absolutely thinking about doing that. We’re in the discussion phase right now. This is all a part of a joint venture with MTV International and so Teen Nick falls within their Viacom system. And it’s the older demo for the channel [13 to 21], with a sweet spot around 18, 19-year-olds. Which is also the sweet spot from my girl group, From Above.
