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.

If you made it this far in the article, comment down below your thoughts on all of this.
