To advance further and faster in the music industry and make your music a long-lasting Money Making Machine, then read this:
In today’s music industry, releasing a song and getting the right reception for it, isn’t as easy as A, B, and C. It’s more complicated. The battle between singles vs albums isn’t getting colder and the market for singles is still leading and might continue to do so, for obvious reasons.
Singles vs Albums has been a heated debate for years in the music industry, so to be ahead, you need to know how to market and distribute your single successfully while considering the pros of releasing an album.
Almost every music streaming platforms are more interested in singles. Radio stations for one, Boomplay, Spotify, Apple Music, etc. The list goes on. This era, knowing what your fans want on one hand, and what your music needs on the other is the line between being an upcoming and becoming a star!
Few other platforms welcome all kinds of music. CeFlix Tunes, the leading gospel music platform in Nigeria, takes on all kinds of gospel music, whether it’s a single or an album. They’ve got you covered as an artist.
When it comes to music, momentum is everything. Releasing singles gives you that momentum you need to blow!
Pushing up one song is easier and effective than pushing an album, but don’t think for one second that it’s that simple. Both options have their pros and cons.
Lady Gaga, Cardi B, Drake are known to release singles first and build anticipation with this move, then finally release their albums. By this time, they have set-up a rolling hype curve that puts their albums on a fiery snowball.
You need to understand the marketing style of music. Most artists make the grave mistake of releasing a single then months later releasing the video…the hype for the song has already grown cold so the video is just a waste of your resources. Music videos are important when pushing a single, and the next thing to go on for is an aggressive follow up on social media and shows/events.
