Whooooo I was upset about a week ago with how slowly Tattoo was moving (kept staying in the #44-46 area) and hoped that with him back in the US his team would kick into over gear to get it moving and they did! Congrats to Hunter and his team and to the fans that requested the song for radio play! Next weekend Tattoo will be played on ALL Top 40 radio countdowns!
Let’s get straight to the point. Invisible was the worst lead single for Hunter’s sophomore album. The worst.
Momentum is everything in the radio business. They lost a bit when they decided to pick “Everybody Got Somebody But Me” as the final single (when there were much better choices) from the self-titled Hunter Hayes album. They lost all the momentum when Invisible was announced as the lead single. Songs about social justice do not fair well as singles. I get it; Invisible connected to a lot of folks who felt alone and made them feel better and have a bit more hope. Im not taking anything away from that aspect of having Invisible as a song on his album. But it was not radio friendly and because of that loss Hunter has to practically start all over with getting his singles to play on the radio.
After Wanted did amazingly well on the radio charts guess what happened? The singles that followed (Somebody’s Heartbreak & I Want Crazy) did well on the charts too! Why? because Hunter had momentum!
And now after the disaster that was Invisible on the charts and with radio DJ’s impressions, Tattoo is struggling to even break Top 40!
Tattoo went for radio adds in June. And for the past 21 days Ladies & Gentlemen Tattoo has been stuck in the low 40’s thats almost a month! Im having a hard time seeing when it’ll finally break Top 40 radio countdowns. Right now below Hunter on the charts is Kip Moore, Jake Owen and Brett Eldredge; these folks have plenty of radio momentum/clout. Now that Hunter is back from Asia Im hoping that his Team will put in some overtime and get this song the help that it needs!
Tattoo is a summer song NOT a fall one! Summer is almost done and Fall season is right around the corner, Tattoo needs to move NOW! Call and request it to your radio stations or even tweet them! Radio stations are getting work done on twitter!
Not saying Invisible shouldn’t be on his album, or that its dumb, it just shouldn’t have been the lead single
Tell me what you think. Am i wrong? stupid? or do you feel im legit in my concerns?
