Not really surprising - people wanted the single but didn't really care about the album.

Yeah, I'm not disputing that. You made it seem like it takes two years to complete the work needed to release an album, which isn't always true. Artists sometimes hold on to a finished record for...

It doesn't have to actually take two years to do the work. A two-year album cycle is just a common industry timeline.

Quality videos are often very expensive to make (though not always) for often very little return on investment these days. Hence the rise of the lyric video, which can be made by almost anyone for an...

WCAR did 1,500 in some markets on their last tour. I'm not sure if it will last, but right now, they're huge.
