4Sho Advice: 4 Reasons Why You Should Spam Your Music



Spam Your Music

What happened over the last couple of years that made spamming music get such a bad rep? Often times nowadays, artists would rather post their music and hope someone decides to click on it. Off the strength of actually liking it. While in an ideal world this would happen, this is almost never the case in 2017.

But why is that?

People often only like things that other people like. But for that to happen, at least one person has to like it initially which often times doesn’t happen. Do you see the chicken and the egg problem unfolding here? This is why spamming music is important. The fear that exists is normal, but we’re here today to tell you why exactly you should do it. Think about your future and the exciting possibilities that can open up if you go ahead with it.

Blog attention

Have you ever heard of BeatsBySaif? The producer managed to get an interview with esteemed music blog Pigeons and Planes simply by spamming his music on established artists’ pages. He’d wait until they tweeted from their account and would make sure to tweet his beats at them before anyone else could say anything. When people clicked the bigger artists’ tweet, they’d see Saif there already. Over time, people began to show either annoyance or interest in the producer. Eventually, blogs began to follow his activities strictly off of the fact that he spams. In an age where people don’t do it nearly as much, he stuck out like a sore thumb.

The reason that we’re saying this is that just by doing that, attention came to him. Regardless of how he sounded, places of influence began to check him out based off just off of his audacity. That’s something to think about.

What Do You Have To Lose?

Seriously. Are you afraid of looking like a jackass by sending people your music? Will your friends laugh at your feeble attempts to spread your songs? Take a step back and think about the integrity of the situation. You want to make your future better. What’s it give to get dirty for five or ten minutes? Do you know that similar to the business and corporate world, you’ll get denied or ignored a hundred times before you get that one yes. All it takes is for one person with influence to check out what you have to say. Do you know how many artists, A & R’s, and producers check out music just out of sheer boredom? Often times, no one even cares enough to chastise you. So if you believe that people are talking about your music spreading attempts behind your back, they’re not. Even if they are, so the fuck what?

People Will Click Out Of Curiosity

This draws back to the statement in the previous section where we said people check things out just out of sheer boredom. How many times have you loaded up Worldstar and clicked on a random video to watch, regardless of the caption? How do you think that the random unsigned (often horrendous) music videos on Worldstar get 30,000 views? Without paying for them of course. People will check things out just because they have nothing better to do. Also, maybe an image of something in the cover art or song will trigger them to check it out. It’s almost possible to predict. But getting the music out will let people decide if they want to check it out. Chances are, if they see it enough, they’ll click it.

Regardless Of Whether They Check It Out, You’ll Be Out There

Say they click it. Say they don’t. Regardless, they’re going to see you. At the end of the day, that’s all that matters. The exposure can get to people of different cities, states, and countries. It’s important to remember that the key to success lies in cultivating a fan base that stretches across time zones, not just in the home city. So when you’re spamming your music and sending it to people around the world, remember that if they don’t check it out, they’ll at least know your name. Also, if they do ignore it, use that as motivation to go even harder with your music.

The lesson to be learned here today is best put into three words:

Spam, spam, spam!

Don’t let egos or doubts deter you from your true goal: being successful. No matter what the odds are, go ahead and do it. Think about it: what’s a few extra seconds for a few taps or clicks that could change your life? Get on it right away, you’ll see the results quicker than you think. They’ll also be bigger than you ever can imagine.

Raquel shares powerful message in new single “Angel” ft. Kofi





Raquel (@raquelllkhan), a rising star hailing from Toronto, Ontario, Canada, just released her debut single, “Angel,” featuring Kofi (@jmgkofi) on September 1st, 2023. The singer is making her mark on the music scene with her emotive sound and powerful storytelling.

Her debut single, “Angel,” tells a poignant story of a person finding the strength to leave a relationship that no longer serves them. It explores the complexities of being someone’s “angel” while realizing that it’s time to move on.

“It’s the portrayal of when you’re nothing but an angel to the person you’re with, but they didn’t always appreciate how good you treated them,” Raquel says. “After you leave because of their actions, they portray you as the bad guy. You have to remind them that no, you’re not the ‘bad guy,’ but you’re not ‘their angel’ anymore.” 

“You feel sorry for how their love for you encompasses their soul, and without you now they feel empty; but, you remind them that you told them before that one day you’d leave if they didn’t change their ways, and now leaving them brought out the savage side in you that they may have deserved all along,” she continues.

The message of the song is evident throughout the single. It’s a track that resonates with many, which is the essence of Raquel’s goal through making music. Describing her sound in her own words, Raquel explains that she aims to create music that not only makes you want to move and dance but also evokes powerful emotions. 

“Whether it’s empowerment, melancholy, or euphoria — my goal is to make my listeners feel something unique each time,” she shares. Her music is characterized by wavering tones, fluctuating vocal ranges, and emotive rifts, creating a mesmerizing experience for her audience.

Raquel’s sources of inspiration are as diverse as her music. She’s inspired by songs filled with passion and emotion. Nature also plays a pivotal role in her creative process, with plans to incorporate the sounds of nature and references to celestial elements in her music. She believes in the power of melancholic moments as they often lead to her most prolific songwriting.

Raquel’s music career is just beginning, and she has ambitious goals for the future. She envisions releasing her first album in 2024, collaborating with various artists, composing musical scores for movies, and performing live for audiences.

“I want listeners to feel like they resonate with the venerability I hope to convey in my upcoming songs, and that it’s never too late to pursue your dreams!” she says.

250z Seamlessly Blends Trap and R&B in Latest Album ‘250z’





Up-and-coming artist 250z (@Official250z) is currently causing ripples throughout the music scene with his remarkable fusion of trap and R&B, coupled with an unyielding commitment to staying true to himself. Fuelled by a lifetime of musical immersion and driven by a desire to craft something novel and inventive, 250z is embarking on his own unique trajectory within the industry, crafting a sound that is unmistakably his own. The recently unveiled project, titled ‘Free Think,’ serves as a prime example of his musical prowess, spotlighting his creativity across the span of its captivating 10-track EP.

Characterizing his musical style as “exceedingly melodious with a twist of trap,” 250z is on a mission to usher in a fresh brand of trap and R&B to the forefront of the music scene. He attests that his influences, including luminaries like Chris Brown, Future, James Fauntleroy, and numerous others, have significantly shaped not only his sonic identity but also the sonic landscape of his latest album.

250z’s creative process showcases an intriguing duality. On certain occasions, he plunges into introspection, composing lyrics well into the night, which yields emotionally evocative tracks such as “Be With You?” Conversely, he readily embraces spontaneity, allowing the rhythm to steer his creative vision, resulting in infectious rhythms exemplified by tracks like “Big Smoove.” Irrespective of his approach, emotions and ideas synergize seamlessly, giving rise to compositions that eloquently capture the core of 250z’s artistic expression.

As a burgeoning artist, 250z grapples with the challenge of maintaining his focus both within and beyond the confines of the studio. To surmount this hurdle, he upholds an unwavering consistency, dedicating himself to his craft each and every day.

“I remain immersed in music without granting myself any days off, even when I’m not stationed in the studio,” he explains. “I engage in songwriting, peruse interviews, and draw inspiration from live performances.”

Looking ahead, 250z’s aspirations are unequivocal: foster a devoted fan base and cultivate a distinct brand name and auditory identity within the music industry. Eschewing the confines of a specific message, he allows his music to eloquently speak for itself, affording listeners the autonomy to decipher its meaning and establish their personal connection with each composition.

For those keen on tracking 250z’s journey to stardom, he can be easily followed on various social media platforms:
