So this first article from Rolling Stone discusses Payola and what used to happen, the lawsuits, and what they think still happens. It's not very good at showing what is legal. Do check the small line that talks about iHeart and how they supposedly stay away from payola. Makes me think that behind the scenes vid of the SuperPower from them (you have to watch the official long version to see the ending credits) is a big deal.
+58,780 streams today! 🎉 #NowPlaying #Superpower by @adamlambert 🕺💃 Now 364,802 streams on Spotify! 🎧 (9 September 2019) Remember Monday updates are always lower. SP is almost equal to New Eyes in streams now! Keep at it!
So you can't buy your way onto radio, or onto Spotify playlists, what's an international artiest to do? This next article on Forbes talks about how certain parts of the world stream like crazy and since they stream like crazy the streaming platforms actually pay less per stream. So some artists look at the dollars and don't think those areas are a good market to spend any advertising in because they may get lots of stream but no money back. However if the computer models just see streams as streams and the more streams the better then can those markets flip a song into a runaway freight train?
Interestingly for Adam those markets tend to be South East Asia, Eastern Europe, and Mexico. Compare itunes charts #s to these areas the next time skaschep posts the list. When I looked at yesterdays list SuperPower wasn't in the SE Asia and E Europe markets yet but Ghost Town still has some legs there. When it comes to Mexico they really seemed to like the Feel Something video (I think that's what I remember skaschep posting). For a power anthem Adam's not saying much, he's actually being a little too generic for me, but am I the only one who thought latinos are one of the groups that really needs and empowerment anthem right now? Or that Adam could almost pass as a very tall latino in the SuperPower vid? It was all probably very unintentional.
So do you think Adam's team is looking at this emerging market data? Will they spend some money in those markets?
OK almost at that million mark for Superpower.. Let's use our Superpower and PUSH for that last bit at 970,995...
I kind of wish Brian and Roger would advertise this song, Our lead singer Adam Lambert has solo music out Superpower go give a listen.. Some folks never make that connection between Queen and solo career.
iTunes Adam is down to 102.. NOOOOOOOOO BUY.BUY.BUY.. even if you orderd album. you can also buy single...

atomom: Adam's artistry is in full display: the surprise of hiccuppy gasps right before "new eyes", the sensuous tongue, one-two punch of "damn" smile, head thrown back, body drops to heavy guitar beats, a lusciously looking Adam--all make NE a visual/aural feast.

jason90405: The complete MTV Pride 2 hour special "Adam Lambert's Fierce Pride Anthems". I did miss the first 30 seconds when he was talking about performing for Cher but you can watch or downloads the whole thing here: drive.google.com/file/d/1H3NfgxeBpk0H

phronni7: Linda, Thank you so much for your kind wishes and thoughts. I tried to send an earlier thanks, but I don’t know what happened. I was definitely in Zombie mode and might still be to some extent. But I love “I was born to Love You”. Than you again, Laur
