I wonder what J Records plan on doing to promote the album. Gallery is in heavy rotation, but Mario still doesn't seem visible enough.

People aren't going to buy someone's album just because they have 1 good song

I actually like that song but it's not one of my favorites.

I was hoping One Shot would be the next single.

But people don't want to risk money in buying a CD they think they won't like...1 song is not going to change their mind...he needs more songs out that more people like

Ick and double ick. Out of 13 songs, THAT one had to be chosen as a single...why? Ugh, I guess it could do well on the radio, and expand his audience (it's certainly different than "Gallery") but I just don't personally care for it...at all.

Sadly a lot of people buy albums for one good song. In fact, that's the point of the lead single. His record label made probably the worst mistake I have ever seen in promotion for the album.

1) They released the video for the Baby Bash version of the single, a song which ISNT EVEN ON THE FREAKIN CD!

2) He had very little week of/prior to release pub. He started coming on a few things here and there a week after the album dropped.

3) They didn't push "Gallery" enough, it should have been a HUGE hit. It's very comparable to Mario's "Let Me Love You" which was a SMASH hit. And for he record Mario(nor Vazquez, just plain "Mario") sold a lot of albums and was very visible. His CD was no better than Mario Vazquez', "Let Me Love You" was about the only hit on there.

4) Target market. The album is a tweener album. It's not quite pop and its not quite R&B. Cohiba is the second most commercial song on the album but it's targeted at the R&B audience when most his fans probably favor more of the pop style songs (Like "One Shot", which is a real good song).

J Records/RCA sucks at promotion. Their business model is primarily to let the music sell itself. New artists like Mario Vazquez need a little bit of help to get things rollin' and they did nothing to help him.

I knew he shouldn't have signed with RCA. They're treating him like they treated Diana and Justin. pinch.gif
