Marketing and Music: Any Song Can Become Famous?

marketing and music

Today let’s dive into a topic that’s been buzzing around a lot: the relationship between marketing and music. We all know that marketing plays a massive role in the music industry, but does it actually hold the power to make any track a hit? Or does talent still stand a chance?

First off, let’s address the elephant in the room—yes, marketing is a behemoth. With the right strategy, massive outreach, and the perfect timing, a song can go viral overnight. Think about the role of social media, playlists, and radio airplay. Not to forget, collaborations between artists that bring their respective fanbases into the mix.

However, does that mean marketing can overshadow talent? Sure, a catchy beat might get you millions of views initially, but will it make you an icon? I doubt it.

What Are Human Rights

Download now You Don't Have to Fight, (The Human Rights Song)

As defined in Wikipedia, Human Rights are moral principles that set out certain standards of human behaviour, and are regularly protected as legal rights in national and international law.

So what are Human Rights? They are “commonly understood as inalienable fundamental rights to which a person is inherently entitled simply because she or he is a human being.” Human rights are thus conceived as universal (applicable everywhere) and egalitarian (the same for everyone).

Unfortunately, Human Rights are not defended in parts of the world where people struggle to daily survive.

I wrote this song You Don’t Have to Fight, to support Human Rights anytime and anywhere in the world, for anyone.

You Don’t Have to Fight, because you have these rights on principle and you should be respected just as human being first of all without the need to fight or to ask for them!

This song is free for you to download and you are authorized by myself (its composer and author) to download it.

 

Here are my words in my song (performed by myself):

The Hula is a dance that has become synonymous with Hawaii and luaus, and it is so iconic and popular that it is often depicted in the same way in the media. You might think of it as the quintessential Hawaiian dance. Most of the time, you’ll see someone performing the dance movements – swaying their hips in a specific manner while simultaneously moving their arms in a wave-like motion in the same direction – usually on a TV show with a ukulele playing in the background, and someone saying or singing “aloha-hay aloha-hoi” or other phrases. Disney’s The Lion King, for example, featured the Hula in a comedic scene.

Hula is a dance that is accompanied by singing or chanting in the background. Interestingly, not many people, including Hawaiians, know about the origins of the Hula. There is no information on the first hula dance, but it is believed to have been developed by the Polynesians, the original settlers of the islands long before they were heavily populated by Westerners and became part of America. The chanting or singing is called a ‘mele,’ and they both complement each other well, as they serve as a form …
