In the history of popgirl culture, both methods have proven to help sell millions.

e.g.

and

But what is the most logical and effective way to drop music in today's payola landscape? :oprah: Exblain sistrens.

If you are at the TOP of your game. You don't need a lot of promo. Like Beyonce and Taylor. 

But if your floating in the middle of the pack, like Gaga and Katy....promo.is super important. And or course, the music.

Beyonce was not at the top before the self titled album. Her only hits in the past couple years had been Single Ladies and Telephone. Single charts were tragic.

OT: I think there is no universal approach. It's a culmination of timing, fanbase, media's willingness to talk about you, etc. Especially when Beyonce did it, there was a huge "this is a totally crazy thing to do" factor which probably also really helped her.

A lot of Promo or a lot of time between lead and Album doesn't work anymore. The Internet is a junk space where everyone throws their 'art' in and everyone got an opinion. 

The best way to release an Album is to keep it 4-8 Weeks after the lead with medium hype and maybe 1-3 televised performances.

She's already slayed this era doing literally nothing but releasing 3 videos :wtfga:

that really sucks for the fans though like, she got amazing album sales but all she did was make 3 MVs and that jingle bell ball thing and then she has a tour

a very uneventful era :blink: i'd lowkey be mad and feel like a wallet if i was a fan

I feel like all her eras are uneventful :derpga: I can't recall a single memorable thing from her previous eras. Taylor has like no cultural impact compared to our budget queen. For her it all lies in the music and this time the music is subpar and now she's fading :duck:

Because it's her choice. That's the thing

 What they want, they get. Ugh. Their businessminded team is perfect
