Wondering why there’s been no video or any promotion at all from George Michael and Mutya for their new single, This Is Not Real Love? Here’s the conversation that took place:
George: I’m only paying for a video, and promoting this single, if you get it played on Radio 1. It’s only Radio 1 listeners that buy singles.
Sony BMG: We’ll try.
But they failed miserably to get the record on the Radio 1 play list. So no video. And no promotion. And only a top 20 chart placing for the record.
OK – that conversation didn’t actually happen. I made it up. But it might be the reason…
