Album x Singles
Was talking to my good buddy Tony Miller yesterday and he was giving me some suggestions on how I should release my music. He used the artist Russ as an example to explain how he thinks I can release music to get the most success from each song. Apparently Russ didn't release an album until he had a large fan base, which means he got himself a large enough fan base to get signed by Sony simply by releasing singles.
Since I am already very deep into completing my album and have committed a large enough amount of capital to completing my album, its just not smart to not finish my album. Honestly though, I think I would do the album either way. I think it is going to be a game changer to have my album out there, and the completing this album will show people that I'm a legit artist and not just some soundcloud rapper. It's also been a crazy learning experience and by the time the album is done I'll have so much confidence in my abilities just from knowing I took the time to put together an album. Getting a single ready already seems like a piece of cake compared to what it used to.
Even though I'm taking the album path right now, I've been thinking and Tony's advice makes a lot of sense for a variety of reasons that I don't feel like getting into right now. I think after my album is done I am going to get into that Russ mode and start dropping singles on a regular basis. This way I will always be giving you guys new music, and with the album being done there will be a catalog of music that yall can listen to in between singles.
