News has reached us that Adam Lambert’s latest single Whataya Want From Me has received pitiful promotional support in the UK after being snubbed by Radio 1 and Radio 2. Check out the current Radio 1 playlist if you don’t believe me.
Without the support from the national stations, the record hasn’t reached the audience it should have. We believe that Whataya Want From Me has the potential to be a massive UK hit for Adam – if it can get the airplay it deserves. Remember, this is a song that was once demoed by Pink – I’m not suggesting that radio is snubbing Adam, but it’s mind-blowing that such a good song isn’t getting airplay at a time when Scouting For Girls are on Radio 1’s A List. Now that’s an outrage!
So, what can you do to help? Well…
Buy the single!
Yes – buy the single. Either go to your local record store (if they exist anymore) or buy from the following outlets to help support Adam. It’s called Whataya Want From Me in case you missed it the first and second time round.
The Lambrits fan site also has a great guide to buying the single if you want more suggestions.
Tell others to buy the single!
Yeah, a lot of this is about spreading the word. So tell friends and family, work colleagues and understanding clergymen to go and buy the single. It’s called Whataya Want From Me, in case you were wondering.
Tell Radio 1 you want the song on the playlist!
Yeah, this is where it gets a bit fanatical, but it has to be done. We don’t know who made the decision to play dross from Scouting For Girls instead of an awesome Adam Lambert song, but they may have been high at the time, or the Tube doors closed on their head that morning. I’ve seen it happen. Let’s not blame them, let’s change their minds.
For a start, check out this list of Radio personalities who are on Twitter and start asking why Lambert isn’t on their playlist! We’re mostly interested in Radio 1 and Radio 2 right now. And use the #adamlambert hashtag when you’re doing it so people can retweet the request.
Yes, good luck to everyone who gets involved in this campaign. It’s not often Unreality Shout gets involved to promote a big-label artist like Adam, but we’re big fans of his and we’re hearing that Sony in the UK have done a miserable job of getting the single promoted – so it’s down to the fans to spread the word. And we know you’re a loyal lot!
