12. Begs For Retweets
Of course songwriters and producers want their albums to do well. It is totally normal for them to want tons of people to be listening to their music. They put a great amount of effort into promoting release date for their next song or album.
However, some *cough* Rita Ora *cough* decide when they will release new material based on the amount of re-tweets they get. How much more desperate can they get? She tweets, as seen above, saying “dropping my new song Monday if this gets 100,000 re-tweets”.
Firstly, she’s just dying for attention with that tweet telling her followers/fans that she will release her album sooner if she gets a certain amount of re-tweets. Understandably, people use social media to promote their work. This is done by tweeting, or positing Instagram feeds on their album’s poster, the release date, or even a snippet of the song about to be released. Those are all reasonable promoting methods. But, asking for re-tweets to release a song is just pathetic.
