#2. Focus on your single, not your album
Record labels, especially the major ones, care almost nothing about your music and how great of a musician you are. All these bloodsuckers want are numbers, and reasons why you can make money for the company. If you come prepared with a hot single that has a lot of views, sales and overall interaction, that is a golden ticket in their eyes. Focus on promoting and marketing one single song. Get all your viewers and fans to dedicate their efforts to supporting it, then promote it to the record labels.
