*** Adam’s new “Trespassing” EP, which includes the radio edit (by Pharrell) of the title song, is available for download October 16 on iTunes!! ***
CONFIRMATION: We were able to get confirmation from Adam’s team that next week we should exclusively focus our efforts on purchasing the “Trespassing” radio edit (by Pharrell)!!!
They want to see this song hit radio and a strong showing even of only 1-3 days on iTunes can make an impression. *WE NEED TO ALL BE ON ONE PAGE to maximize the iTunes chart position.* To move up on iTunes, the radio edit has to sell at a faster rate than the other songs. There is only a small window of time to do that in, so dollars will be focused on the first day of sales and second day (if funds allow).
It is also good common sense to focus organized fan efforts on the “Trespassing” radio edit single vs. the EP ($1.29 vs. $6.99). We can buy many more singles and perhaps help the radio edit reach a nice position on iTunes, either overall or on the pop chart.
RECAP OF GOAL: To gift as many copies as possible of the “Trespassing” radio edit (by Pharrell) as early as we can next week (first day or two)!
How Adam fans *EVERYWHERE* can help:
Step 1: If you are financially able, donate the cost of a standard download (US $1.29) or more by simply following the DONATE button above. >>IMPORTANT: After entering how much you want to donate/gift, there is an option called “Add special instructions to the seller” – there you can insert your e-mail to your US iTunes account, if you have one.
Step 2: If you are being gifted the song, please download ASAP and make sure you have no other copies of it in your iTunes folder. If you do, it won’t count as an individual singles sale!
NOTE: If you want to help but don’t have funds, that’s OK! Be gifted the radio edit (must have US iTunes account) AND just spread the word on Twitter and Facebook, including the link to this page! Thanks!
REGARDING THE PURCHASE OF ENTIRE EP VS. INDIVIDUAL SINGLES:
All of the “Trespassing” remixes will count as “Trespassing” single sales as long as they are bought as singles AND not via purchasing the entire EP. If you buy ALL the songs on the EP (either all at once or in a couple transactions during the week), it will be counted as an EP/album purchase and not individual track sales. SO IN ORDER TO MAXIMIZE SALES OF “TRESPASSING” FOR SINGLE CHARTING, BUY EACH “TRESPASSING” REMIX SEPARATELY AND DO NOT COMPLETE THE ALBUM THAT WEEK…LEAVE ONE OR MORE SONGS OFF, be it BTIKM remix, NCOE remix or PTL remix.
If you want to buy the EP this week for possible Billboard 200 charting purposes, the best option would be to purchase it via Amazon and/or Adam Official.
